Unconditional love is the roots. Confidence is the wings. Young people who have both live bigger lives.

~Dr. Laura Markham

  • Research on Sharing

    Although preschoolers can appreciate
    sharing as a social norm, they don’t
    really embrace the principle until they’re
    at least 7, according to the study,
    published in the journal PLOS One.

  • The Myth of the Only Child

    As couples are starting families later
    in life and they are facing increasing
    economic pressures, more and more
    parents are wondering whether or not
    they will have that second child.
