This blog is for parents or other folks raising children – grandparents, aunts, uncles, foster parents, guardians. I am a mother of two. I am also a child and adolescent psychologist in private practice for over twenty years. Over the years, I feel like I have heard and seen it all. What I love about what I do is getting to know so many different kids. I mean, I really get to know them. And I love helping families work better together. The inspiration for this blog actually comes from my child clients. I’ve been collecting quotes from the kids I see in therapy since I was in training in the mid 1980’s. These quotes highlight important lessons that we, as parents, can learn from the words and wisdom of children.
I would love to read your comments, and, if you have any suggestions for topics you’d like me to cover, post them. I’ll do my best to address them all.
Enjoy your reading and happy parenting!
