Thanks so much for joining us, Dr. In fact, just identifying the qualities that make for effective parenting, is a good first step.
What is a self-aware parent? The Self-Aware Parent is one who is always curious and open enough to look within and become more aware of their own strengths and weaknesses based on the parenting they received from their mothers and fathers. They are kind and nice to their child ren. She never engages in negotiations, bargaining, or deal making.
He balances nurturing, setting limits, and boundaries. He listens to his child.
He interprets both verbal and non-verbal cues. She encourages healthy expression of anger. She also nurtures and praises every incremental step toward separation.

Instead of feeling defeated because I identified with potentially damaging parenting traits, I finished this book feeling empowered to utilize many of the techniques offered in this book in order to ultimately be the best mother to my children that I can.
