The Peace and Parenting Philosophy
Parenting is no easy task. As caretakers, we come to child rearing with our own understanding of how it should look and feel. However, that look and feeling don't always happen as organically as we hope it might. Our personal childhood experiences influence the way we approach our kids...often subconsciously and at times negatively.
Things become difficult when our children fail to comply with our wishes and desires. Therein lies the basic contention between children and the adults who take care for them. This tension can easily erode the parent-child bond so much so that parenting becomes arduous and grueling.
At Peace & Parenting we strive to loosen up the struggles between adults and children allowing everyone to feel and be more peaceful and connected. It's easy to say you want a calm and relaxed household yet sometimes more difficult to achieve.
Peace & Parenting offers alternatives to bribes, threats, rewards and punishments and instills the listening tools of the Hand in Hand Parenting methodology created by Patty Wipfler. These parenting tools along with techniques to get ourselves resourced make for a powerful way in which to raise and teach children.
