What is positive parenting?

As a parent of 3 who happens to be a positive discipline educator and a therapist– my opinion of child rearing practices is obviously very biased.

Don’t take my word for it though! Research positive parenting and try it out for yourself.

Positive parenting — sometimes called positive discipline, gentle guidance, or loving guidance — is simply guidance that keeps our kids on the right path, offered in a positive way that resists any temptation to be punitive.

There are many benefits of positive parenting. Most importantly is the secure attachment between parent and child, which encourages healthy development. Secure attachment builds resilience, paves the way for how well your child will function as an adult in a relationship, and have a positive impact on brain development, just to name a few.There are many benefits of positive parenting.

In a nut shell the premise is that you treat your children with respect as you are teaching them to treat you with respect. It is “mutual respect”.
