7 Ways to Help Children Flourish When We Partner With Their Parents


During the years that you are caring for a child, your best effort toward success will require you to have a good (if not great) working relationship with the child’s parents.  Sometimes you get very lucky and the parents are wonderful partners.  But, many times the parents don’t have the child development background that you have, and therefore don’t know or aren’t sure exactly how to help their child.  Is it your responsibility to teach parents?  Probably not.  Is it to your benefit to help parents learn how to help their children?  Probably.  This webinar will help you to explore this question and answers.
