Children can challenge our desire for calmness and cooperation when their needs clash with ours.
When you view these parenting struggles as opportunities for personal growth, then you will be open to embracing new parenting ideas and to discarding the old. My goal is to offer you an ally parenting approach that develops family harmony through respectful problem solving and through nurturing the individuality and spirit of each family member.
I invite you to follow the links to any of these articles. There are also more in the Cynthia’s Insights section by topic category. Parent Success Stories are at the end of the list. Thank you.
