The emotional and mental health of parents must be nurtured in order to create an environment in which children can become cognitively and emotionally healthy
There is not a ‘one size fits all style’ of parenting that is ideal for all children or families
Creative approaches lead to emotional growth, healing, and problem resolution
All families have an important story to tell
