Therapy in Bethesda, MD and Rochester, NY
It is easy in our very pressured, busy world to often feel that we are losing our effectiveness as parents.
Research does clearly point to what type of parenting is most effective: it is called Authoritative Parenting. Authoritative parenting offers children clear consistent limits partnered with high levels of nurturing and communication.
We know that children learn how to behave more effectively through positive reinforcement rather than through threats and anger.
I can work with you to develop consistent parenting strategies for all ages.
Some excellent parenting resources I would recommend are: The Everyday Parenting Toolkit by Dr. Alan Kazdin
No Drama Discipline by Dr. Dan Siegel
The Whole Brain Child by Dr. Dan Siegel
Parenting from the Inside Out by Dr. Dan Siegel
