The latest research supports your concerns. When parents provide more expansive nurturing, it results in more resilient, happy, and successful children.

Previous generations gave lesser importance to a child’s emotional well-being. Since many of today’s parents were raised by less emotionally attuned parents, parents today are in untraveled territory. There may arise a hidden conflict for many parents if the parents have different parenting styles. One parenting partner may lean towards being permissive while the other parent believes that an authoritative approach is better.

The good news is that there are solutions. Coaching helps parents learn to be responsive, attuned, and receptive to their child’s needs, while also setting limits and accepting that frustration or making a mistake, are all part of the process.

With guidance and support, you can create a plan of action that will help you parent consistently, effectively, and confidently while preparing your kids to live happy lives. As your children become happier, parents’ rewards are plentiful. Learning new skills may prompt you to discover more about your own temperament, personality traits and values.
