The Child’s Self-Discovery

“As the child discovers their separateness from their parent, the parent is there to support their child’s self-discovery by being a constant, stable force in the child’s world. This connection forms the foundation… to the child’s eventual independence…The parent understands that the days of parent-child referencing are over, and that they and the child are two separate, whole individuals.”
