ARTICLE: Fostering Independence in Children
  • Created By Ashley Scott
  • Description:
    Every parent and caregiver wants their children to lead a happy life. When we dream about the future, parents have hopes that their children will be part of a community, have friends, live independently, and enjoy health and well-being.

For this reason, we need to think about how we can begin early to promote lifelong independence for our children. -Excerpt from article
