Positive Parenting

Positive Parenting

No two parents are alike and no two children are the same. There is no single mode/method of parenting advice that generalizes to all situations. At Living Skills, we offer personalized support in your parenting. Through our Positive Parenting Methodology (PPM), we can help you work through a variety of issues with your child. Positive parenting (sometimes called positive discipline or gentle/loving guidance) is simply guidance that keeps our children on the right path, offered in a positive way that resists any temptation to be punitive.

PPM focuses on the present… We do not dwell on past approaches or parenting decisions…

At Living Skills, we will give you sound parenting resources and useful tools designed to specifically work within your family and its unique relational patterns. You will receive detailed direction towards handling and positively adjusting your child’s individual behavioral challenges and their impact on your family dynamic.
We can also help you work on issues that affect you as a parent including:

  • self care
  • time management
  • work/life balance
  • spouse/partner conflicts
  • differing parenting styles

PPM is client centered…  Each family (and each child) is unique and requires a customized and tailored plan and direction…

At Living Skills, we will work on identifying your goals, moving forward, changing behaviors and removing obstacles that are keeping you from being the parent you want to be. Together we will increase confidence in parenting, uncover and work to eliminate emotional barriers, strengthen relationships and improve your family’s overall functioning.

  • inappropriate behavior/tantrums/acting out
