Raising children has always been demanding and the current culture adds a layer of new challenges (social media, competition, protecting kids from discomfort).  The Gift of Failure by Jessica Lahey provides a springboard to discussions about minor and major issues in family life. Learn with Tracey Lipsig Kite, Social Worker and Mom of 3, how to move toward being the best parent you can be.
