Purpose of this blog Though I've earlier written a couple of blogs on positive parenting, this one explains the concept in a very simple language, along with the techniques to apply it.

His mom and coach are after him to run fast if he wants to win the race. They aren't concerned whether he’s learning right or not. Another little girl always looks back while racing. Though she's very fast a…
