We all want our kids to be perfect,
so when something’s not quite right, it hurts. Sometimes
it can hurt so much we deny there’s a problem. But, as
parents, our kids need us to be their anchors and
advocates. We’re the ones who can detect a problem early
and give them a fighting chance at overcoming it.
So in this interview with Karen Schiltz,
clinical psychologist and author of Beyond the Label: A
Guide to Unlocking A Child’s Educational Potential,
you’ll hear the red flags to look for with your kids, the
steps you should take if you suspect there’s a problem, and
how to take any hurt and fear you might be feeling and turn
it into something positive for your child.
