Positive Parenting

Being a parent is very rewarding and enjoyable, but as any parent can tell you, it is not always easy. Parenting in a positive way means using practical techniques to reduce stress and address everyday parenting concerns.

Here are some examples of positive parenting:

  • Create a stable, supportive, peaceful home.
  • Build positive relationships with your children.
  • Deal clearly, calmly and consistently with any problem behavior.
  • Encourage behavior that you like.
  • Know what is reasonable to expect from your children and yourself.
  • Take care of yourself as a parent.
