Parents need to be more aware and equipped to understand the upheavals of their child’s moods and respond accordingly. It is up to us, as parents, teachers and counselors to not only train the minds but their soul as well. A holistic development can help children acquire skills more effectively and rapidly, which is essential to successfully survive and thrive in today’s day and age.”
