Parenting our children: one of the noblest and most challenging among all of life’s callings. Doing it well . . . that’s another matter, especially in the face of a complex culture, competing interests for your time, and a thousand potential land mines on your child’s road to adulthood.
Some of the issues many parents struggle with today include:
Pre-schoolers and toddlers
Time-outs vs. spanking vs. other forms of discipline; tantrums and whining; separation anxiety; potty training; daycare and babysitter issues.
School Age children
Public vs. private vs. home & online schooling, after-school care, growth and development issues, delayed learners, talented/gifted students.
Peer groups, identity and self-esteem issues, drugs, sexuality, dating, curfews, driving, college and job choices, school violence, self-destructive/self-harming behaviors
Challenging children of all ages
Those with ADD or ADHD; Tourettes disorder; fearful, sensitive, actively aggressive or angry children; Oppositional-defiant personality disorder; conduct disorders; those with eating disorders (Anorexia or Bulimia) or who struggle with obesity.
