Why choose Positive Parenting?

A positive approach to parenting helps children feel capable, cooperative, confident and connected to you. 

Positive parenting is not just letting go of punishments. And it’s not permissive either. Positive Parenting is choosing to be actively involved in connecting with your child and supporting them to grow well.

Children are very capable and willing to cooperate, especially when they feel a strong bond with their parents.

How you choose to parent can influence your child’s physical and psychological well being. Parenting has an influence on language development, social skills and friendships, academic achievements, motivation and more.

As a parent, you are your child’s first and potentially most influential role model. How you solve problems, confront stress and challenges will teach your child how to do the same.

At the Positive Parenting Connection we share many potential parenting solutions. You get to pick what you think will work best for you and your family.  Below find more on welcoming cooperation, proven parenting tools for improving communication and helping you find positive, punishment free solutions to common parenting challenges.
