What special challenges do parents face today?
Many parents today are caught in a paradigm shift about how we raise children. Many of us were brought up when strict discipline, including physical punishment, was the norm. We find we do not want to use these methods with our children, but we are not always sure how to replace those methods as we strive to raise our children to be responsible adults. We find in the heat of the moment it can be easy to revert to what we learned as children from our own parents, even when those methods have consequences that we do not like. I can help parents find child rearing methods that work effectively by helping parents understand the needs and the temperament of their particular child or children.
