Parents have a tough job. Managing children’s behaviour can be a minefield. Finding the appropriate balance to enable positive interactions as well as managing the not-so-positive interactions often requires the skill and patience of a seasoned professional. Effective parenting programs have been developed and made available to help parents through those times of difficulty. Most programs focus on strategies to manage undesirable behaviour, strategies for the encouragement of positive behaviour and strategies for the further strengthening of the relationship with the child. Learning new ways to deal with children’s behaviour can empower parents to more confidently approach the important task of bringing up happy, well adjusted and competent kids.
