What is Positive Parenting?

Positive Parenting is for parents that want to discipline their kids without breaking their spirit. It is a program that is focused on developing a strong, deeply committed relationship between parent and child based on communication and mutual respect. Positive Parenting focuses on teaching children not just what but also why. Positive parenting means training children toward self-control.
