In these pages we talk about ways to free your child to grow up to be an independent and fufilled adult. Childhood brings challenges that help us pave the way through adult challenges.

We have some new readers. For all of you,  I have added a new link to Online Rescources.  Alan Kazdin is at Yale University. His work and the work being done at the Yale Child Study Center is making a big difference in children’s mental health. See if his ideas — which are based on research — help you defy defiance. Look under Online Resources for all our links. 

He has an engaging and smart approach but like all effective interventions it is not easy, not intuitive, and takes practice.
