A Note from the Medical Editor
At this time of year, it’s fun to focus on ways to show our love for one another. One way to show love to your children is to help them develop their self-esteem. This can be easier than you think. They need you to believe in them as they learn to believe in themselves. Loving them, spending time with them, listening to them and celebrating lessons learned from their mistakes and successes are all part of this process. This edition of our newsletter can help you do just that.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
