The Grand Island Independent highlights psychotherapist Barton Goldsmith’s parenting tips. The advice covers appreciation, empathy, acceptance, self-confidence, affection and self-reliance.
Goldsmith writes [excerpt]:
You will make mistakes as a parent, so give yourself a break when you do. Similarly, allow your children to make and correct their own mistakes. That’s how we all learn, and it is a never-ending process.
No one single event in your kid’s life will matter as much as your being a constant source of support and comfort in their life.
