You're looking for parenting help because you're already a good parent. Only the best parents care enough to seek help. You're smart enough to know that being a good parent is one of the most challenging things you can face as a human being.
This is a place for you to learn about positive parenting, and to offer your own wisdom and ideas, if you like. Take advantage of this opportunity to help and be helped.
Your job as a good parent is not to mold or shape your children into who you want them to be. Your child has gifts to offer to this world, and your task and wonderful opportunity are to help them to bring those wonderful gifts and talents to fruition in the way that works best for them.
Let's look further at what it means to be a positive parent.
Positive parenting means avoiding criticism and judgment, while looking at what is good, right and working about your child as s/he is.
There is always more right than wrong with your child, but sometimes you will have to look for it...and that process of looking for it is very healthy to you as a positive parent.
These are just a few highlights of the types of positive parenting help you will receive here. Now it's your turn! Fill in the form below with your story, suggestions or question, and get started on your journey to help and be helped.
