How To Raise Your Child's Confidence

Image
There are many reasons why today's children behave more like consumers of life's riches rather than producers of life's work. The average Ghanaian home is filled with multiple entertainment sources that provide immediate rewards, rather than foster delayed gratification.

The holiday season is a time to spend with loved ones. For some people that mean that you celebrate the holiday with family members that you haven’t seen for a long time or maybe spending time with some individuals that you have issues with. We all know how that feels and how much stress that can bring. But research shows that families who spend quality time together — during the holidays and all year round — have a stronger emotional bond.

Following are some ideas to help you enjoy the spirit of the season together as a family. If you find this valuable, please share and/or comment below;…
