Okay, Mama. Okay, Daddy. We’re going to discuss parenting your child with intention. We’ll get there. Before we do, I wanted to provide you with helpful resources. I’d suggest you start with the free temperament sorter. A full report is available for $19.99, but for these purposes, establishing who you are and how you order your world, the free will do nicely. We’ve provided websites that discuss child abuse and online parenting resources. Community resources can (usually) be found at your local health department.
If you feel that you or others around you may cause harm, please call 911 or 1-800-422-4453 – The national child abuse hotline: 1-800-4-A-CHILD.
This list is not comprehensive. We will come back and add more resources as we find them or they are shared with us.
