How to grow a successful person?

How often do we parents think about what we can give our children? It would seem that everything is obvious – good living conditions, proper nutrition, decent education … But is this enough for our child to grow up successful?

Game therapy and fairy tale therapy in the work of a child psychologist (part 2)

Another option for playing psychotherapy is to play a plot. The plot in question should resemble the real story that the child is experiencing.

Thus, a child in difficulty has a unique opportunity, firstly, to see himself and his situation as if from the outside, and secondly, to make those changes that he would like from the plot and into the action.
