Joyce Marter wrote a blog for Child Psychology Resources on how parents can support the gifts and challenges of their children.
Below is an excerpt from the blog:
“After more than 20 years of counseling individuals, couples and families, and being a parent myself, I believe it means that it is our duty to identify and nurture our children’s gifts, and also equip them with the skills to best manage their difficulties. We have been bestowed the honor of shepherding our kids through their childhood and adolescence, preparing them to survive and to thrive in their adult life journeys, when we will continue to love and support them from the sidelines.”
