Manage episode 331736531 series 3326921
There is a new trend going around. You probably have come across it and have heard about it. It's a new way of parenting, it's called gentle parenting. Some also call it positive parenting, respectful parenting or raising resilient kids.
This is a very different approach of parenting from the traditional way most of us were raised. If you are like me and you were raised with conservative Christian parents, you probably experienced spanking, threats and punishments.
The thing was, that was the only way to raise kids back then. Chances are, your parents like mine, had no idea there was another way.
In today's podcast episode, I had the honor of interviewing Wendy. Wendy Snyder is a Positive Parenting educator, family life coach & advocate. She is certified in Redirecting Children's Behavior & The Joy of Parenting Program. Wendy founded her online business, Fresh Start Family, so that she could spread the message of positive parenting across the world. She is the developer of a variety of online positive parenting courses and also has a monthly membership program to further support families. Wendy helps families parent from a place of great purpose and intention by creating healthy, respectful & cooperative relationships.
