Heroic Parenting

SHARE

Learn how to achieve influence in your parenting. Understand the difference between “strictness” and “controlling” in parenting. Children can adjust and thrive within high levels of structure. What children often cannot adjust to is the parent who tries to impose a belief, opinion, philosophy, or feeling onto them.
