Parenting Our Future

Let’s face it, all we know about how to be in a relationship is what was modeled for us by our parents or what we see in the media. We are never really taught how to be in a relationship. With all relationships, there will be conflict and that is something we definitely haven’t been taught.

Parenting Our Future

“Tricky behavior” can often be challenging and confronting for parents, these children are the ones that are often incredibly gifted academically or creatively and frequently grow up to be the movers and shakers of the world. Passive resistance, competitive, manipulative, aggressive, moody or argumentative traits can often disguise anxieties and stresses that children cannot articulate.
