We all want to build lasting relationships with our children based on trust and respect, but what happens when our children aren’t behaving or speaking respectfully. How can we motivate our children to cooperate when we have asked many times and they just are not listening?
Punishments, rewards, bribes and threats have been the way that many of us have been taught to motivate our children’s behavior. But what if that isn’t really the best way?

Our goal is all the same: to build lasting relationships with our children and create an environment where our children can thrive and grow into the best possible person they can be. Centuries of harnessing the belief that we have to use punishments, rewards, bribes and threats to build cooperation and teach our children hasn’t made our world more peaceful or the people in it happier, fulfilled, accountable, responsible, moral, nor treat each other with more human dignity and kindness. It may require extra patience, research, support, and asking questions but if we focus on building communication, connection, and trust then we will find we don’t need to resort to these tactics anymore.

As parents we need constant reminders, encouragement, and connection with wisdom to help us stay inspired, confident, and reminded of the best ways to parent our children. The topics, challenges, struggles, examples, and our children’s growth is never ending. Just when we think we have it under control a new situation arises we need to tackle with our children. This is normal and this is part of growing children, parenting and human life.
We have lots of questions, and there’s so much to learn; sometimes it seems overwhelming and complicated. It’s hard to know what to do, where to start, who to listen to; AND how to find the time for it! Life as a parent is so busy!
