Summary

There are so many different parenting styles today, each one promising to raise a healthy, happy, and confident child. Some rely on seemingly conflicting principles: Helicopter parenting advises parents to always be in the know about what their children are doing, even spying on them. Hands-off parenting, however, advocates letting children make their own choices as they are developmentally able to.

While these different approaches certainly have their benefits, they don’t always take into consideration meeting the needs of your child, not just at his or her developmental level, but as a unique and capable individual person. 

Positive parenting is an approach that seeks to always affirm and validate the child while understanding the problems and meeting the needs that underlie negative behavior. It is not so much a set of rules and guidelines as it is a way of life. At its heart is a belief in your own child and the assurance that your child is enough and doesn’t need to be anything more than the child already is. It begins with the emotional health of the parent as the basis from which children develop their own emotional health and behavioral regulation.

Positive parenting has the goal of empowering children to make good and meaningful decisions on their own without the need for external motivation because they have an internal drive that gears them towards success. Punishing bad behavior does not teach good behavior, self-esteem, and integrity.

Rather than imposing strict rules and dishing out punishments, positive parenting provides loving guidance to set kids on the right path. They are valued as family members who can contribute to decisions and whose input is valued. They have secure attachments with their parents, setting them up for strong relationships outside of the family. The connection between kids and parents always comes before correction.

Short Summary, boring narration

The narration isn't the worst I've heard, but it's certainly not good. The voice is flat and makes it hard to pay any attention. The content is brief and more of a refresher on other well-researched books rather than providing any new information. This book gives us no reason to read or listen. Who even is this author? Why should I listen to her advice? Well, the book certainly won't tell you. DO NOT BUY unless you are already a peaceful, respectful parent who has suddenly forgot everything you know.
