Respectful parenting – it sounds like something that all parents should be practicing, although many of us don’t embrace the concept as we should. Peaceful or gentle parenting as this method of parenting is also known, perhaps gives a better idea of what it’s about. Basically, it’s all about working with your children to find a solution that everybody’s happy with, rather than getting your kids to do what you say by imposing your will. Treating your children like people, rather than like children is another way to put it; many parents who practice peaceful parenting have few or no rules in their home, and offer guidance and suggestions rather than giving orders. If this sounds like a better parenting approach than you currently have, you can find information and ideas online, and classes that explain the idea are also widely available.
