Each month we provide parents with information on a relevant topic. For August, we discuss learning strategies that encourage self-confidence. The courage to try, make mistakes, and learn begins in an environment of compassion, creativity, patience, and security.

How can we as parents help our children learn what they need to learn while encouraging them to love learning at the same time?
