    The parent-child relationship affects us more profoundly than any other relationship of our lives.  It is the foundation of all of our relationships and the source of our earliest consciousness about love, intimacy, trust and security.  It can nourish us to wholeness and self-assurance or scar us for life.

    Children and adults with secure and satisfying family relationships experience greater emotional security and physical health.  The skills and knowledge needed for healthy functioning families are:

    • knowledge of typical human development
    • strong communication skills
    • good decision-making skills
    • positive self-esteem
    • healthy interpersonal relationships.
