Parenting Tips for Your 12 Month Old Child
Being a parent can sometimes tax your patience and your confidence in being able to cope with daily problems. At times, you may feel comfortable and self-confident, and at other times you may feel uncertain and fearful about your decisions.

There are ways to boost your self-confidence so that you feel better about yourself. Here are a few suggestions:
