The “Why” and “How” of building and implementing structures in your home that foster the development of resilience and independence in your child.
Kids are at home more than ever these days, and parents are being forced to manage complicated schedules and multiple demands in an already stressful time.

We will address the age-old question of “is it worth it?” and cover the use of practical tools to help your child understand, manage, and respond to limits.
