Parenting Points

This week's feature ... Think about the big picture in parenting ... Parenting may often seem to be a series of challenges. As soon as one problem is handled, another is right there. And it's easy for parents to get caught up in short-term solutions and lose sight of their long-term goals for their children. But parenting isn't only about surviving the day. Your child is learning skills and developing the values that will shape him as he grows. When you focus on the long term, you may see that many of your daily struggles will be short lived. So slow down and do your best to make the most of every stage of your child's development.
