Hi! I am starting a blog about my favorite topic: Parenting! Various tips and concepts I read in my favorite books have helped me to develop a more peaceful style of parenting. I have watched my philosophy change from a more harsh style to a softer one. The funny thing is: my style may be softer, but I am more effective as a parent! We have fewer power struggles and fewer ugly shouting matches. My style is less controlling and my son follows my lead much quicker than he used to!
