Am I being too tough? Am I being too soft? Am I doing any of this right? We all ask these questions of ourselves, wondering if we could be doing better. Dr. Vanessa Lapointe, registered psychologist, parenting educator, founder and director of The Wishing Star Lapointe Developmental Clinic, and author of Discipline Without Damage, is here to help us find balance, with some guidance on how to be a firm and kind parent.

Takeaways: 

  1. Respectful parenting is finding a balance between being both firm and kind
  2. In safe parent-child relationships a child instinctively leans into the parent’s guidance and care
  3. It’s never too late to turn it around, but expect some resistance at first
