From the foreword
"I have seen how the principles in this book transform the lives of many families. After reflecting on the philosophies discussed in this book, parents have been positively influenced to transform their parenting approach, and they have been astonished at the changes in their lives as they start seeing their children in a whole new light and re-connecting with them in a more fulfilling way. As a mother and grandmother, I have also personally experienced how Respectful Parenting has had an incredibly powerful impact on my family. I sincerely hope this book will help parents, grandparents and those who care about children’s wellbeing."

Respectful Parenting is an approach in which children - even the youngest of infants - are treated and communicated with respect in all situations, as opposed to an approach based on power-control and discipline.
It’s about acknowledging your child as a unique individual, but it’s also about understanding and respecting your role as a parent, so that you and your child can establish mutual expectations based on effective choices and decision making.
Respectful parenting empowers us to build a positive relationship with our children, one that will see us through their adult years and beyond.
What does it translate into for parents and what does it look like when it comes to parenting and real-life interactions with children? We’ve put together a book to guide you on your parenting journey.
