It's an exciting time in your child's life. Your child is growing more independent, but she still relies on you. Learn how to advocate for your child as a student, a medical patient, and an individual.
Now that your child is getting older and the preschool years have passed, his life and the rest of your family's lives will change in many ways. Learn more about how to keep the lines of communication open.
Each year your child is getting more independent in caring for her needs. But she still may need some guidance, and we're here to provide you with ideas on how you can best support her continued growth in this area.
Before you know it, middle school or junior high school will be on the horizon for your child. You'll want to make sure he's ready to move on, and there is plenty your family can do to support him in his growing independence.
