From the surveys, your comments and your response to my emails so far, one thing is clear –
We are a community of parents who love the idea of positive parenting. And yet, many of us struggle to implement the ideas on a day-to-day basis.
What say we do something about it? Let’s end this year and start the next one with a bang. Let’s take a pledge, as a community, to be positive parents in 2015.
I’ll be taking the pledge right alongside you, and will support you in this pledge the best I can –
- All articles in 2015 will be approached from a positive parenting perspective. For instance, based on your choice in our last survey, our theme for January is “Raising kids with character”. So, every article published in Jan will look at how a positive parent would go about instilling certain character traits in kids.
- If you run into specific issues while you try to practice positive parenting, and you can’t find answers in already published articles, just send me an email. Either I or one of the members of our wonderful writer community (you can be a part of it too — details here) who has experience in that matter will put together an article for you. And, if none of us can be of help, I will reach out to some of the top positive parenting experts to find their suggestions for what we can do.
One more thing. We are very fortunate to have Dr. Laura Markham support us in this pledge. As some of you probably know she is one of my favorite parenting experts and has been pivotal in my choice to become a more positive parent. Thanks to Dr. Laura, every parent who takes the pledge will be entered into a giveaway, and one lucky parent will win access to Dr. Laura’s course Stop Punishing, Start Connecting, and Raise a Self-disciplined, Emotionally Intelligent Child.
So, are you in?
Let’s do this!
