Sustainable Parenting was created as a toolbox of parenting tips & tools that will be sustainable. These tools are especially useful for parenting difficult toddlers and young children ages 2-12. In today’s lingo, “sustainable” is a word that can mean eco-friendly, “green”, or good for the environment. In this case, it means finding a solution that will be effective in the short-term, and have positive results in the long-term.
We seek “sustainable” ways of living in order to preserve a healthy earth for the future. In parenting, “Sustainable Parenting” focuses on how to raise a healthy adult (that’s the whole point of parenting anyway, right?!).
Sure yelling, nagging and punishing can change behavior in the short term, but those parenting tools usually lead to anger, resentment, low self-esteem, and dependence.
With record numbers of 20-somethings living with their parents in 2014, now is the time to start preparing your child for the independence and positive life/social skills you want them to have down the road. So, start learning about Sustainable Parenting today, and you will have the tools to raise a child that is healthy (socially/emotionally), self-directed, happy, and fun to be around! Sustainable Parenting will give you tools to raise an assertive, confident and self-directed child that you will enjoy for years to come.
