Happier and Healthier relationships with your kids, your grandkids, and your older parents is possible!!! We all want the best for our children. But, raising children can be challenging, especially against the backdrop of work responsibilities, life stressors, and even influence of friends and other family members. Most of us learned about how to rear children fro our own experiences being raised by our parents who did the best they could with the knowledge they had. The nature of our parent-child relationships become ingrained from our experiences and the relationships from our earliest years. This affects our relationships with our adult children and as adult children, our relationships with our older parents. In addition, there is an entire generation of children being raised by or being cared for by their grandparents many hours/day. Our parenting style may no longer be suitable for the changing times. It's about the importance of communicating in a loving supportive way in order to manage unavoidable misunderstandings and build stronger relationships. This helps eliminates the 3 R's: retaliation, rebellion and resistance. Katherine Sellery's Guidance Approach to Parenting is Applicable for parent-child relationships at any age across the generations. When you understand your needs as a parent and the needs of the child, parenting success is possible. It's not about being a perfect parent: it's about being a conscious one.
