Our Camp Office team spends a lot of time reading the latest studies and ideas about child and human development. A few days ago, Scott found this interesting article "Why parents need to be patient with their school-age kids" on BostonGlobe.com. It offers an important reminder of the many pressures and conditions we may unconsciously place on our kids while they actually "grow and develop interests at their own pace, and we need to let them be themselves, not mini versions of us."
We invite you to take a look at this. Does this article resonate for you in any way? Does it articulate an aspect of parenting you find important or challenging? We'd love to know your thoughts!
