Ep #165: Parenting styles and why our evidence-based skills work

December 8, 2021

Do you want to be the best parent you can be? Smarter Parenting is here to help you!

Smarter Parenting teaches parents the best evidenced-based and researched parenting skills that focus on helping parents raise resilient, well-rounded, and successful kids. 

Our goal is to help strengthen and improve relationships while giving our children the tools to navigate their lives successfully. 

The skills on Smarter Parenting have been used for over 50 years by agencies worldwide to help families succeed. The skills work with children of all ages and abilities. They will work with your child too!

There is a lot of parenting styles and advice out there. Some of it good. Some of it not so helpful.

On extreme ends of the spectrum, two common parenting styles are authoritative parenting and permissive parenting. These parenting styles can teach our children unwanted lessons and long-term behavior.

Science has proven that a parenting style somewhere in the middle is the most effective. 

The most significant difference between Smarter Parenting and other parenting styles is our focus on teaching. While we would love our children to know how to behave or listen to us or make the right decisions, those things do not always come naturally. We have to show them how to do it. 

The skills Smarter Parenting teaches shows parents how to be both firm and kind while teaching our children what is expected of them.

Children need boundaries as boundaries make them feel safe and a sense of the world. They also need compassion and understanding as they learn how to deal with new emotions and situations.

The best way parents can learn to be better is through skills that balance firmness and kindness. The skills found on Smarter Parenting teach parents how to do just that. The skills are universal and give parents the confidence to handle any parenting situation with compassion, understanding, and fairness.
