Life is full of decisions or intersections. Today we discuss how to look ahead.
Raising Well-Adjusted Kids
With respect to raising healthy, well-adjusted kids, every generation of parents down through the ages have had their own unique challenges during the times that they lived. This has been true whether the challenges be economic depression, sharp social changes, wars, plagues, natural disasters, technological advances, or other negative influences beyond our control.
Now some people would say that parenting challenges in the 21st century are more unique or more challenging than those of the past. Others, however, would beg to differ. But what’s important is identifying, examining, and learning how to overcome today’s challenges.
Helping you do that is our goal today on License to Parent.
