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.
What can we control? We can control how we treat ourselves and others. We can control our own intent to be loving or unloving, open or closed, learning or protected, surrendered or controlling. What can't we control? We can't control others' feelings, behavior and the outcome of things. Today, notice what you do have control over and what you only have influence only, and how you feel when you try to control that which you can't control.
