Teach correct principles and allow people to govern themselves is a belief I hold. Many parenting models arrive at a complexity that loses sight of basic principles and relationship interaction. They become highly rigid in structure and application. The ABC's of Parenting instructs parents concerning basic principles, concepts and relationship interaction that results in safety, secure attachments, resiliency, and emotional intelligence. Greater acceptance and understanding permeates the relationship. The relationship can then allow for discipline and defuse power and control dynamics. Parenting is a relationship. Apllying this principles and creating a similar dynamic and process can ensure greater relationship stasifaction and the greatness of your child.
