I have been working to help parents successfully meet their children's developmental needs since 1987. My area of focus and expertise is applying brain research to the daily decisions moms and dads make. These "small" things become powerful influences over time.
Aim for the “Goldilocks Zone”. It’s not overly permissive, and it isn’t overly controlling. In this zone, you are able to maintain your authority but still be gentle, caring and supportive. You’re not policing. You’re investing in the child’s growth, and you’re working to give that young adult what he or she needs to develop optimally in the best way you can.3 May 2021
