Our Most Critical Task

For all the tasks that life puts on our plate, there’s one area where none of us can afford to fail.

Between the busyness of work and many of life activities, it’s amazing anything gets done well.

The world is filled with good counselors who are ready with great advice and resources. So when you feel confused and challenged by the job of parenting, don’t be afraid to ask for help.
