Childhood lasts a few years.
The experience lasts a lifetime.
Any family can become more positive, even yours! I can teach you the skills you need to build your child's self-confidence, self-esteem and resilience, prevent your child from acting out negatively, and improve your whole family's mental health. Positive parenting is an uplifting, proactive approach that can bring out the best in all family members.
Positive Parenting can help bring your family closer, strengthen your relationship with your child, accelerate his or her social and emotional development, and decrease negative emotions and behaviors in your family.
This site does not offer solutions to 1001 problems; instead it presents a fresh approach to child rearing that can prevent child depression and risky behavior, and can even improve those dreaded troubled teenage years. Positive parenting is a hopeful approach to raising children who will flourish.
"Louise is right on target for young families. She helps parents see what they're not doing right, without shame or blame or finger pointing."
