I was a wonderful parent before I had children. E. Mazlish
Parenting can challenge in ways we never expected.
Parents and children both want loving homes where trust and structure keep everyone feeling loved and protected.
Trying to modify the behaviour of another person is a recipe for disaster, and while one can have short term results for coercion, bribes and punishment, the relationship can be badly damaged.
There is a better way and it’s more fun. Learning about yourself and your children through reflection and relationship is the cornerstone to a strong and healthy relationship.
Our program content is based on positive discipline and respectful communication. These are learned skills and we can help.
