Parenting is the one life-time job which we do not need a qualification for – and yet there is SO much to learn!
Our children are our teachers and trainers as they are quick to tell us what is working or not through their behaviour!
How about that for turning the leadership process upside down and inside out!
There are three main parenting styles which emerge as we observe parenting in action
1) the authoritarian
2) the permissive or laissez-faire
3) the emotion coaching parent
Do we like how we parent? Is it effective? What impact are we having on our children? Are we being the kind of role model we want to be??
Do we actually like ourselves in those moments when we are “shooting from the hip” and feeling like no-one is listening to us – least of all our children!?!
Do you find yourself saying and doing things that you promised yourself silently you would never do??
