All parents want to do the best job possible in raising their kids – that’s a given.
But when I look around, I often see parents saying and doing things that I just shake my head at and think “what are you thinking - what are you doing?”
Too often, parents just don’t seem to get it right. Maybe they are overwhelmed, totally stressed out, or too tired to come up with a better plan. I get that. I’ve been there, done that.
So, what do we do?
Well, bottom line – parent to the strengths of your child by first understanding his/her core needs - and then begin the journey of meeting those needs as best you can.
