Today, children live in many different family structures. Many children live in two-parent households but a large percent have parents who are divorced. Roughly 23% of children are living with single mothers, 10% are raised by a grandparent, 6% are raised by same-sex couples, 2.5% of children are adopted, and foster children move into homes. Households, step families, religions, and races blend in many families.
Our goal is to help children to feel valued and to understand their individual worth. What we know is that when children feel loved and secure in their family, they are more likely to prosper both personally and professionally. Help your children recognize the special qualities about your family and help them to feel pride and happiness as they consider the unique qualities about your family. This book will help you achieve this and your chldren will love it.
