"The most powerful force in nature is a parent’s love and concern for their children. Parents have the potential to positively influence their child’s well-being at every level but, in order to do so at the most significant degree, they first need to transform themselves."
- Marc Rosenbaum
"Being intentional as a parent is a good place to begin. No book or professional can offer the right answers for each possible situation that can arise in the day-to-day life with our children. Instead of depending on techniques alone, parents can learn ways of being with their children that promote the development of empathy and compassionate understanding."
