How to cope with parenting challenges? How to survive first year with baby? Deciding between different childcare options? What are developmental stages in the first five years? Positive parenting is all about making child-rearing choices that reflect your beliefs and values as a parent, your child’s age and stage of development, and his or her temperament. Positive parenting is not just letting go of punishments. And it’s not permissive either. Positive Parenting is choosing to be actively involved in connecting with your child and supporting them to grow well.
