As parents, we want what’s best for our children.  Creating an atmosphere of respect and kindness in the family is not so easy.  The hectic  school and work week plus balancing the needs of children and adults require an understanding and support that cannot be gleaned from reading books alone.  Even the most loving, skilled, and informed parent can feel overwhelmed and lost in how to support their child and balance the needs of everyone in the family.   Health Psychology Sacramento’s Parent Support Group
