Positive Parenting is a dynamic concept; it is not static. Positive Parenting is parenting for tomorrow and not for the moment. Positive Parenting is building a relationship with your child that encourages open dialogue, honesty, and compassion.
In this relationship the parent understands that normal childhood behaviors are not malicious or spiteful acts to undermine a parent’s authority. Instead, they are developmental stages in which a child is discovering the world around them and their role in various facets of life.
Just as mom and dad engage with their boss in a different manner in which they interact with friends, children have different relationships and expectations for their parents than they do for their teachers.
