Clients challenged by their children often resort to old-fashioned reward and threat strategies, from yelling to timeouts and other consequences. But the most effective parenting tool is always the relationship with, not control over, the child. By emphasizing parental self-regulation, strengthening parent–child connection, and welcoming emotions while setting limits, the Peaceful Parenting approach offers hope for frustrated parents who don’t want to punish but don’t know what else to do.



This online program is worth 4.0 hours CPD.
