The answer to this fundamental question lies in positive parenting. While positive parenting may sound like a simple idea, its implementation is not so easy. But there is a way out – I like to call it the STEPS method:
- S: See through their Defences
- T: Touch and Connect
- E: Explain Why
- P: Peace
- S: Stop giving Orders
In moments of stress, just remembering and implementing STEPS can prove to be a game changer as it lets you stay away from stressful behaviour and makes you a positive parent.
