NOT ALL TOOLS ARE CREATED EQUAL
Some of today's most popular parenting tools sacrifice children's long-term mental health at the altar of "good behavior."
INEFFECTIVE TOOLS =
Although they may "work" in the short-term, ineffective parenting tools have a way of sabotaging children's mental health and future happiness. Think rebellion, drug and alcohol abuse, depression, unhealthy friendships, early sex, criminal activity, and even self-harm.
EFFECTIVE TOOLS =
Effective parenting tools not only fix existing problems, but prevent them in the first place. Parents feel more calm, confident and balanced; and the parent-child relationship remains strong well into the teenager years — giving kids a great shot at a healthy future.
