Respectful Parenting blogs: Practical parenting advice for better parent-child relationships
Welcome to our little library of respectful, positive parenting blogs. This is a form of parenting that tries to work in partnership with children to create a harmonious family environment. Differences between this kind of parenting and conventional parenting include the fact that we don’t use punishments or rewards, we live by principles instead of rules and our kids have equal say as members of our family.
If you like these parenting posts you might be interested to peek at our posts about home education.
It might sound hippie-dippie but we’ve found that working this way as a family has helped us become better communicators and more understanding of each other (parents and kids alike). This page is full of practical advice and tips on working together as a family to become more peaceful, happy and effective (and some humorous posts about the chaos that are our family mishaps- see the bottom of the page!)
You might not connect with all the posts but I hope that there will be some nuggets in here that you can find useful; I LOVE hearing from people who try my tips so please do keep in touch and let me know how it goes!
