Posts that are all about you as a parent.

There are many roles a person plays in life and all of them have one thing in common– YOU. Though you bring YOU to every role and every goal, HOW you do that may differ. Articles in this category cover issues like:

* Communicating and influencing your child from ages 2 through teen.
* Communication with your child’s other influential adults, such as teachers, coaches, other parents, clergy, etc.
* Leveraging problems or social issues for deeper trust and rapport.
* Understanding the influence all around you, namely parenting peer pressure.

Go ahead, have a look around and be sure to comment when you’ve stumbled upon something thought provoking. Share your experience and opinions so that everyone in the community can learn and get better at influencing our kids.
