  1. Thank you. Today's newsletter meant a lot to me. As the parent of a recently diagnosed 10 year old, I was so busy thinking about him that I forgot to analyze and moderate my own perspective about myself.

  2. Thanks for a very comprehensive article. You listed so many positive ways that we can connect deeply with our children, yet also help them develop competence skills, which is so important in developing self-esteem.

  3. This is a very helpful article. Thank you.
