Raising children is hard and I often wonder if my parenting is doing more harm than good. This book, introduced an interesting question that caught my attention. “What if misbehavior was just the symptom of a deeper root issue?” If that’s true, then maybe I can learn how to identify those root issues and solve for that instead of constantly treating symptoms.
In this episode I talk about:
- The underlying theory and history guiding the Positive Discipline parenting style
- The 4 false beliefs that all children have that drive misbehavior
- Comparisons to the more common parenting styles
- How kindness & firmness can be used to encourage children allowing parents to work with kids instead of against them.
