Parenting is a wonderful experience that has both great reward and can have great challenges. While we love our children, some times their behavior confuses us and can even push us to our own limits. The stress and anxiety produced can sometimes be unbearable.
As parents learn to understand their own fears around parenting challenges and begin to understand the children’s negative behavior is motivated out of an unconscious sense of fear, they begin to see that their response has been focused on the behavior rather then reducing fear for their child. Understanding the love based approach that Dan Oakes teaches can be invaluable to any parent.
Understanding the two primary emotions of love and fear and how they function and motivate behavior in our children and make our parenting efforts much more productive.
