Those of us who have children know that parenting is one of the most important jobs we will ever do. For many of us, it is also one of our most challenging jobs. And for most of us, it is not something that we are born knowing how to do. In fact, good parenting is something we learn on the job, by trial and error, by sharing our experiences, and consulting experts in various fields, with the understanding that there is no manual, no magic formula, and no one right way to raise children. In this module we will share strategies for effective parenting. Because our goal as parents is to help our children become healthy, happy, fully-functioning human beings, our focus will be on the importance of developing healthy self esteem.
