A Simple Model for Developing Your Child's Maturity - at Every Stage

  • Forming a stable identity that doesn’t change with each new emotion
  • Developing discernment to distinguish between what is satisfying and what is only temporarily pleasurable
  • Discovering heart values and not just living to please others
  • Building “joy bonds” rather than “fear bonds”
