Living with children and guiding them to discover their potential is a series of challenges for the best and the brightest of parents. Although there are no exact answers that always meet the need there are some suggestions that might help in the moment. We will explore three typical dilemmas parents encounter and discuss, as a group, potential ways to resolve them. 

Dilemma #1
How to encourage autonomy in the child while maintaining cultural consistency

Dilemma #2
Developing “growth” within the child when there “isn’t enough time.”

Dilemma # 3
Respecting me as the parent while respecting my child’s preferences
