Positive Parenting

Parenting can be the most fulfilling experience, but it can also be stressful at times. Caring after a family is a journey and no one gets it right all the time.

Most parents experience insecurity and worry that they aren’t doing the right thing for their child or that they aren’t doing enough to help their child through the stages of development.

It can be difficult to vent your frustrations when you’re faced with Instagram perfect family photos and social media evidence of first words, first days at school and first gold star. It can often feel like you’re the only one not getting it right when you’re dealing with a tantrum on the bus or high-pitched screams in the cereal aisle of a supermarket.

Even the most prepared, calm parent can become tired and worried about their children’s behaviour, whether that’s a newborn baby, a toddler, or an older child or teenager.

With a positive parenting approach, you can ensure that you’re approaching parenting issues without worrying about being that social media picture perfect family.

Imperfect is normal, perfect is unattainable and positive is rewarding.
