Picks for You

Letting kids be who they need to be.

It's hard not to see your children as an extension of yourself or your partner's self. But it's important to realize that they are in fact their own person, no matter how little they may be now. As one author puts it, "That is the essence of parenting – to see and value your children for who they are, rather than as an extension of yourself or as the means to fulfill your own needs."
