What Do Children Really Need From Their Parents? Dr. Shefali's Answer May Surprise You!

Our children don't need toys, gadgets or vacations. They may want this, but they don't need this to grow. Instead, what our children need to grow is something far simpler, and certainly cheaper. 

They need our pure presence, uncluttered by our agendas, unfettered by our fears, unburdened by our expectations. 

Pure presence, connection, relationship.
