Understanding Your Children

·   Are your kids as different as night and day?

·   Do you find yourself relating to one child better than another?

·   Do you judge yourselves by how your children behave in public?

·   Have you discovered your child’s inborn personality traits?

·   Do you “relate” ?

"There is no single effort more radical in its potential to save the world than a transformation in the way we raise our children" -Marianne Williamson
