A parent's journey through childhood will inevitably be filled with both precious moments and difficult situations. These unavoidable challenges will test us in ways that will either consume us or refine us. If we can see these events in advance, as they emerge on the horizon, we will be better prepared for parenting's challenges.

Navigating the Terrain of Childhood is designed to help parents understand and anticipate the developmental terrain of childhood and see that we all make a similar journey, one that can be precarious, challenging, and yet, strikingly beautiful.
