Authoritarian, Permissive, or Loving Parenting
Welcome - we are glad you came for help!
The pendulum often swings back and forth, in different generations, between authoritarian and permissive parenting. You will discover that neither of these parenting models is loving or supportive of you or of your children’s highest good.
When our intent is to learn, we are able to hear the truth, even when it is difficult. This does not mean that we do not express pain or fear when the truth is hurtful or scary, but that if these feelings arise we handle them responsibly. When we become a safe receptacle for truth, others will naturally tell us the truth. Notice if you are willing to hear the truth.
