Parenting in the 2020s is different from parenting when we were being raised. It's become a high-stakes pursuit for many parents, with social media fueling the pressure (and feelings of judgment) that so many parents experience. And with that pressure comes a question: how do we get parenting 'right'?
Is there a 'right' way to parent? Researchers have been investigating this question since the 1950s, and volumes of research tell us that while everyone will do it differently, there are certain things that the best parents do that are linked to the very best outcomes in children. While there are several parenting 'styles', there is actually one that is measurably better than all the rest.
In this presentation, Dr. Justin Coulson, Australia's leading parenting expert, will share the science and the practice of the very best parenting style, and identify specific strategies that parents can practice to change their family for the better. You'll learn:
- the evidence-based pros and cons of the most popular parenting styles
- the 3 research-founded principles that underscore the very best parenting style
- skills and habits the best parents practice to follow the best parenting style in their families
- ideas for adapting the best parenting style for optimal results for younger and older children, and children with additional needs
