In celebration of August 1st Respect for Parents Day, we are launching a month-long poll of parents and parenting educators asking:

What has been the biggest positive influence on your own parenting?

All are welcome to respond, those with direct experience with Parents Forum – of course we especially want to hear from you – those who have read our handbook Where the Heart Listens – wherever you are – as well as people in the larger, global community.

We want to know what works in helping parents foster their children’s wellbeing, learning and life success.

Hope to hear from you!
