Empowering Parents Everywhere (By Anshu Basnyat, LCPC)

Welcome!  This blog is designed to honor, support, and empower parents everywhere in their journey to improve their parenting skills.  As a therapist and parent of two children, I understand from the bottom of my heart what a challenging and rewarding role a parent has.  This is complicated by an ever changing and demanding world.  Over ten years experience working with children and families in schools, detention facilities, and clinics has taught me that every parent wants what is best for their child, but there are many who do not know how to go about it.  I know every parent can be an effective parent if they have some tools under their belt!
Effective parenting is a balance between Science and Art.  Science, because one needs to have some understanding of human psychology to be an effective parent.  Art, because it takes lot of creativity in effective parenting! I hope as different topics such as effective discipline, teaching kids money management skills, internet security, etc. are presented in this blog, you will take this opportunity to share your personal experiences and expert information to empower each other and find this balance!
