The Parent's Journey
Parenting is a journey that a caretaker travels with a child,
rather than a set of actions that an adult performs.

A caretaker's discipline of a child flows from their values and their understanding of basic needs. However, many caretakers may not grasp either their own or their child's basic needs.

When raising a child, parents must re-negotiate unmet needs
that surface from their childhoods as their youngsters pass through
phases of development.

In addition to "how-to" suggestions for common childhood problems, It Takes a Child to Raise a Parent delivers "how-come" answers. Learn more by going to:
