“Responsibility is fostered by allowing children a voice and wherever indicated a choice in matters that affect them.”


Compassionate Parenting Tip -- Week 50

One of the challenges of co-operating to solve problems is that it requires you to let go of the impulse to manage and control everything that affects your children's lives.

Letting go becomes easier when you realize that there are more strategies for solving problems than there are problems - more ways to meet needs than there are needs.
