Welcome to the Phelly BlogAs you know, my mission is to help children feel better about themselves and their journey through childhood. At the same time, I want to help parents and kids connect so that the child feels supported and parents feel they know what is going on. In this, the Phelly blog, we share thoughts and resources for parents and kids designed at helping kids to just be kids. Happy reading!
