We all want our kids to be successful in life. We worry about things like their schools, their grades and even how smart they are. But it’s also important to help our kids develop self-control. Dr. Laura Kastner, author of Wise-Minded Parenting: Mastering the Seven Essentials for Raising Successful Tweens and Teens, gives us more information.


...This wonderfully thoughtful, wise, and comprehensive guide maps out the latest research and knowledge about what our tweens and teens need to thrive, and, most importantly, offers us much-needed practical strategies for acting and responding more mindfully and effectively throughout this rich and challenging period...
