Parenting without stress: how to raise responsible kids while keeping a life of your own
Discipline is critical for parents to raise responsible and contributing children in the family and for the society. For parents struggling with a lack of educating experience, most people usually go with the way they were raised by their parents. There are frustration, stress and feeling of inability when we are misunderstood by our parents. And very likely, we may pass the frustration, stress and bad feelings to our children.
Dr. Marvin Marshall has clearly done sufficient study and experiments on different parenting styles and made wonderful recommendations to parents and young couples about how to reduce stress and increase effectiveness. The key is to treat your children with the same respects you treat mature adults with, provide sufficient guidance and choices and encourage, trust and empower them to take responsibilities. By doing so, your children will eventually take over their lives and live independently and happily as responsible and contributing members of the society.
