What is Positive Parenting?
Positive parenting is about teaching, caring and nurturing a child with consistency, affection, rewards for accomplishments and setting clear boundaries.
“Positive parenting is the continual relationship of a parent(s) and a child or children that includes caring, teaching, leading, communicating, and providing for the needs of a child consistently and unconditionally”.(Seay, A., Freysteinson, W.M. & McFarlane, J. 2014).
Effective positive parenting is achieved by ensuring parents are happy, balanced and energised themselves – in order to have the strength, motivation and energy to consistently apply positive parenting principles. Once applied consistently, positive parenting has been shown to produce improvements in children’s positive behaviors and well-being, positive school adjustment and fewer behavior problems.
