Positive Parenting

Positive Parenting

Raising kids can be hard at times … especially when they’re playing up. So why not try some positive parenting techniques to help you deal with your child’s unacceptable behaviour in a calm and positive way.

Balancing the various demands parents have to cope with isn’t easy and all parents can come under pressure or stress from time to time. There isn’t a set of rules for positive parenting. Instead it’s a way of parenting that looks for solutions to your child’s misbehaviour rather than focusing on punishing her for being naughty.

It’s not a new way of raising kids. The roots of positive parenting – sometimes called positive discipline – go back to the early 1900s. Austrian psychologist Alfred Adler believed that when kids feel connected to others, they are less likely to misbehave.

Which is why – along with teaching your child rules and boundaries – a key element to positive parenting is having respect for your kids…. and teaching her to respect others.

What You Will Learn:

  • Learn why children really misbehave and the connection between birth order and misbehaviour.
