    I love the recognition that all children are different and that parents need to accept their children for who they are. I also like your choice of quotes from Korczak’s book. A great article on parenting!

    Thanks, Emma. A very wise and sensible approach to child rearing. And the proof is in the pudding…as your children are happy and sweet individuals!

    Very well written, Emma. I really appreciate this perspective, especially given all of the parenting books out there, and my occaisonal guilt over not reading any of them, when other parents mention the latest ‘philosphy’ or parenting technique. This gives me confidence that my own instincts can be trusted. Thanks for the column!
