I have never been the kind of person for whom parenting comes easy, especially since I have a few stepchildren. It has been really difficult to bond with them, and I realized that it was going to take a huge amount of effort to overcome our differences. I started working hard to improve myself, and one of my therapists emphasized the importance of self-help. She talked with me about being able to recognize and address my own shortcomings, and it was a really powerful move in the right direction for me. This website is here to help other people to understand self-help techniques and address issues early.
