No role we undertake in life is more important than parenting, but it’s one of the hardest jobs there is.
The secret of successful parenting is to balance love and boundaries, in other words, gentleness and firmness, being able to say both ‘yes’ and ‘no’.
That’s the easy bit! How we put these simple principles into practice is a little trickier.
Parenting courses can be really helpful because we can learn ‘tried-and-tested’ techniques that help us handle our children firmly and lovingly. It’s also pretty reassuring to hear that most other parents struggle with much the same difficulties as we do. There really aren’t any perfect parents!
