Today's guest is Bonnie Harris, MS Ed, parenting specialist and director of Connective Parenting. We will discuss what we as parents can do to help our children develop healthy relationships with their peers. We generally think first and foremost of parents and their impact on a child's development. More recently, we are beginning to recognize the importance of early peer relations, and how they affect our children's overall development including, feelings of self-worth, and academic success.
