What’s Your Parenting Style?
Author and clinical psychologist Maryann Rosenthal outlines the 4 primary parenting styles – and discusses how each of them can affect our kids.

Positive Discipline using Connection Parenting
“Ultimately, love is the only leverage we have with our children,” Author Laura Markham writes. “Even if they worked, fear and power (from spanking to timeouts) only last for as long as they can be physically enforced. Every parent knows how fast children grow; fear works for a very short time. Love, on the other hand, becomes a more effective motivator over time.”
Here, Markham explains how to put positive discipline to work in your home.

Don’t Say “Don’t”
“In all the years I have taught parenting classes, one skill has stood out as a four-star skill for gaining cooperation from children and preventing problems like power struggles and tantrums. I call it ‘Don’t say Don’t.’” Great advice from Jody Johnston Pawel, LSW, CFLE
