Why A Father Is Not A Dad


It can be said that any man who procreates is a father, whether present in that child's life or not.

Five Ways To Build Super-Strong Relationships With Your Children


One of the questions I ask in parenting presentations is "How do you show your children you love them?"Participants usually cite verbal and physical ways of showing affection as the most common means of showing love. These ways work well for children of certain age groups and children with those relational preferences, but how do you relate to a child or young person who becomes a 'conversational clam' or one who doesn't like physical closeness?Conversely, it is easy to miss the relational signs of children if their ways of relating fit outside our frame of reference.
