And it is a key ingredient not only for school success, but for all aspects of your child's healthy development. Kids who are confident are eager learn new things and face new challenges. In large part, a kid's sense of confidence is shaped and nurtured by the parents, relatives, caregivers and teachers.

I am currently undertaking a PhD, part-time, and am at a somewhat advanced stage. I have been preparing journal articles for international publications along the way so that I can support the Thesis with published content.
