Relationships as a Parent

  • Understand your basic needs and the needs of each of your children.
  • Learn how to meet your own needs, while helping your children meet theirs in responsible ways.
  • Discriminate between doing to, doing for, and doing with your children.
  • Negotiate the inherent conflict between parents and children – parents wanting to keep their children safe, while children want to live with reckless abandon.
  • Apply these skills to any relationship in your life to create happy, supportive, caring relationships.

If step-parents are introduced, everyone works together to create a unified parenting team. Does this sound like a fantasy to you? Is this not the way your divorce is going? Are your children suffering because your ex has left them in the divorce too? This is not ideal, but there are still things you can do to help your children through this.

It teaches parenting skills based on our five basic needs and emphasizes the difference between discipline and punishment. Parents are taught the formula for teaching their children self-discipline while building influential, positive relationships with their children.
