Positive Parenting Approaches

Positive parenting is all about making child-rearing choices that reflect your beliefs and values as a parent, your child’s age and stage of development, and his or her temperament.

Positive parenting means taking an approach that is sensitive to children’s individual needs and addressing the typical challenges that arise in early childhood with empathy and respect.

Watch how responsive care, which is the process of observing your child’s cues and responding in a sensitive way, can help your child grow up into the person you want them to be.
