Promoting understanding of parent-child relationships

The key components that enable parents to build a strong relationship with their children are sensitivity and responsiveness to the child's physical and emotional needs as well as their strivings for autonomy. This can help their children develop the coping, problem-solving and relationship skills they need to succeed in life.
