Do you know people who are confident, assertive, and competent without being aggressive?

“To unconditionally accept children is to love children not because they are beautiful, smart, get good grades, or are helpful, but just because they are.” -Gippenreĭter, Psychologist/Writer Dear Readers,  Do you know people who are confident, assertive, and competent without being aggressive?

These people handle stress well and are able to deal with difficult situations. As adults, we meet people who have these qualities and we wish to help our own children develop them as well. While our first actions may be to solve our children’s conflicts, I believe in helping children handle conflicts and solve problems on their own. To provide children with full respect, we must allow them to think, speak, and resolve conflicts on their own whenever possible.

As a parent and teacher, I wish to help children become confident, motivated, focused, determined, cooperative, and positive through my series of children’s books.
