The most challenging and difficult occupation today is that of parent. Similar to most jobs, you are expected to learn mostly through on-the-job training, except that the training part is a misnomer. You have no supervisor, no one checks your work, there are no performance reviews; in short, you are completely on your own. Of all the things that might be required in our education system, somehow these skills were left out.
I attended a parenting class taught by Kathy Andrizzi on January 27, 2012, and have been digesting it since. The class was based on the principles taught in The Power of Positive Parenting, written by Kathy’s uncle, Dr. Glenn Latham.
I captured the event with sketchnotes and am including them here.
