As parents and caretakers of our children, there are times when we feel our patience and faith is being tested-and we question, at times, how we should respond. I hope, says author Marie Parks Pinto, that, through this series, we can help parents better master parenting skills from the kids' own perspective. In today's difficult times, such appropriate responses can very easily elude us. This series shows situations through the eyes of a child to illustrate how we, as adults, appear to them. That way, it becomes easier to respond appropriately, thereby modeling healthy interpersonal skills for both us and our children. When you're in a difficult moment with your child, ask yourself whether you're applying corresponding skills. Are you teaching your child-or are you willing to be taught? As Pinto puts it, No matter what side you're on, they are just little children; of that you can be sure.
