A Word From Wendy Wisner

These days, parents and families often feel inundated with information and guidance. It's easy to feel overwhelmed as you try to make the best health and wellness choices for yourself and your family. Remember that no parent is perfect. We are all doing the best we can with what we've got. And while we all should be encouraged to make decisions based on the best data and practices possible, ultimately we know our children best and we shouldn't forget the power of our parental instincts.
