Every parent has wished children came with a manual.
But they don’t. And raising healthy children is a challenge! In my eight-year journey to date, I’ve had questions I floated to friends, obsessed over in my mind, seriously doubted my abilities, and now, I’m seeking professional help. I took your questions about helping your child through a separation/divorce, parenting them without a father, navigating their fears, picking a “parenting style” that works, and worrying if my child was “normal” or suffering from anxiety or ADHD. If you’ve ever questioned any of those things, you’ll want to hear Dr. Sabo’s take.
