All Children Deserve the Best Start in Life!

Children deserve our best: our love, our attention, and our willingness to be present with them.

In the midst of busy lives with many families juggling two or more jobs, child care, keeping up with events at school, and managing all the details of life, remember that children also need our presence. Sometimes the best thing we can do for our children is not to do more but to just slow down and be with them.

Here is some advice I offer my patients and their families. I hope you will share your comments, ideas,
and questions too. To learn more, click here.
