Dear Miss Mary Ellen – I want to thank you for helping Melody to be a stronger, happy little girl. I was one of the “neighbors” in your letter. I can see the proud face when she comes out of her room with the clothes she chose for the day. I used to pick to outfits and she decided which one to wear. But you’re absolutely right, she needs to feel capable and competent. Thank you again for taking the time to help us become better parents. (April 2009)
