Parenting can be the most difficult, but potentially most rewarding challenge a person can take on. Often, our own parenting experiences may not prepare us to be the kind of parent we wish to be. Emphasizing the successes every child has and minimizing the energy we give to their mistakes (negative behaviors) allows parents and others who deal with children to transform the child and the picture they have of themselves. Parents also find this approach transforms them from negative, rule-setting, demanding, frustrated authority figures to generous, supportive, positive parents.
