"Nothing is as important as this moment"

50 ways to build emotionally healthy kids -- a blog entry from former Post Oak School counselor, Mary Jo Rapini.


  1. Interesting. I read her column in the Chronicle from time to time. She does present mostly common sense suggestions, but there are a couple that conflict with some ideas I gathered from some Montessori books. Her charge to never give a child money for nothing, but instead only as pay for work is one example. Overall though I think she gives some very good suggestions.

  2. Thanks, Tom, for your comments. Hard to imagine that any of us would agree with all 50 recommendations from anyone on any single topic! Glad you found this list helpful. John
