Positive parenting – hardwiring our brains to build and celebrate character strengths
Why do we always see what’s wrong in the world rather than what’s right? How do we connect our children to the values we see as important? How do we build simple family traditions that bring us closer together? In a world where bad news sells, and our kids are more connected to devices than to us, it is refreshing to know that there are some minor tweaks, some changes in mindset and some simple strategies than can effect major positive change in the home. Understanding how our brains are wired naturally, and then effecting purposeful, positive change can have a lasting impact on you and your family.
