“The key to being a good parent is wanting to be a good parent strongly enough to make the time to do it.”
Edward Hallowell, The Childhood Roots of Adult Happiness, page 35.
Parenting is one of our most significant jobs, one that requires ongoing flexibility and adaptation and skill development. Yet, we seldom take the time to work on or develop the skills necessary to perform this job effectively. We somehow think and/or believe that common sense, intuition and love alone will guide us. Although these are certainly important, they are not enough. Developing, and practicing, effective parenting skills takes time and effort but is one of the best gifts you can give to yourself and to your children.
