We asked some fantastic parents from in and around the city to tell us about the most important thing they have done as parents.

Jamie Clark | Psychic Medium

I train my boys to use their natural intuitive abilities with love, compassion, and empowerment. Each child has had their own spiritual experiences, adding to the knowingness that these experiences are real and valid. They have grown up with me doing what I do as a Psychic Medium and they are very comfortable with using their own abilities to help others. In being able to have this spiritual connection with my boys, they are very open to come talk with me about powerful life circumstances and sometimes challenges. Read more>>

I don’t know how you can teach this quality except by setting an example. Children watch their parents and much of their adult behavior is based on watching their parents. 2. Spend time with them. Because my wife and I worked at night, we did miss the daily “family dinner” experience. But we maximized the other time we had with our children. Instead of dinner, we always had a big breakfast and time together before school. Read more>>
