Family life becomes so much easier and more rewarding when parents learn how to create an environment of mutual respect. Children want to be cooperative and responsible; difficult behavior is a cry for help. We help our children best when we learn how to remain calm and centered in the face of stress. Click here to learn more about Bring Out the BEST in Your Child and Your Self.
All children yearn to bring out their best –
to grow and fulfill their highest potential –
to develop and express their finest qualities.
Once we acknowledge that truth,
we see our children with new eyes.
We realize that negative behavior
is actually a cry for help:
“Help me find a more effective way
to meet my needs.”
Half the job of being a good parent
is to look for and support
the best within each child.
The other half is
finding the best within ourselves.
