Raising children to become healthy adults has never been easy, and what is evident is that there is no one secret recipe. Yet there are many tools that have been developed during the last several decades that can help us become better parents. As adults, the burden falls upon us to learn more about our special role as parents, and to better understand the social, emotional, and physical challenges our children face while becoming young adults. As parents, we also need emotional support and resources when our relationships with our children deteriorate. Seeking out these resources has the added benefit of diffusing difficult situations and lessening the stress associated with them.
