I found a great post from a blog called Parenting from Scratch. It hits all the keys that are important to me: brain science, an Adlerian perspective, and most importantly being intentional about parenting in the face of social/peer disapproval. I’ll let you read it from the author by following this link to It’s OK to Cry. One of the thing that I love the most about this perspective is that it doesn’t pamper children, but gives them credit for being able to solve their own problems and the room within which to do it.
Thanks for your great thoughts, Kelly Bartlett.
