NBC Universal’s Education Nation “Parent Toolkit” Features Blog Article by CPCK’s Author, Jennifer Miller
NBC Universal’s Education Nation “Parent Toolkit” published an article today by Jennifer Miller on their blog entitled “A Better Version of Yourself.” It highlights what you can do as a parent to deal with anger and anxiety in the heat of the moment with your children.
