It is impossible to overestimate the impact we as parents have on
our children’s well-being, their futures, our families, and our world.
When children are raised by parents who understand how to foster essential character traits like
self-esteem, integrity, empathy, resilience, and courage, they become happy, confident children engaged
in the world. This crucial foundation enables them to become happy, confident adults able to contribute to the world.
Without that foundation
the challenges of today's world overwhelm children and jeopardize their well-being.
Then we all lose.
Children and parents suffer unnecessarily.
Children are less likely to develop into happy, confident adults able to contribute to the world around them.
Our societal challenges worsen along with the associated financial burden we all incur.
The body of evidence from leading-edge neuroscience research to casual observation is compelling and cannot be ignored.
