What is Gentle Parenting?

Gentle parenting is a parenting style that emphasises creating a supportive and nurturing environment for children. Where parents work to meet their children’s needs without using physical or verbal punishment. Instead, gentle parenting relies on positive reinforcement, encouragement, respect and open communication.

 

Traditional Parenting versus Gentle Parenting.

Traditional parenting is based on the belief that children need to be disciplined in order to be well-behaved. This often means using physical or verbal punishment as a way to correct bad behaviour. In contrast, gentle parenting focuses on building a strong relationship with your children and meeting their needs in a supportive way. It has been shown to be more effective in the long run, as it helps children feel loved and respected, and less likely to act out.

If you want to become a calm and peaceful parent, there are many ways to get started. Try establishing routines, speaking calmly to your children, and listening to their perspective. With a little effort, you can create a loving home environment that benefits both you and your children!

How to implement gentle parenting at your home?

1. Create a calm environment

One way is to create a calm and predictable environment for your children. This can be done by establishing routines and sticking to them as much as possible.

2. Avoid yelling

Another way to gentle parent is to avoid yelling or speaking harshly to your children. Instead, speak calmly and kindly to them, even when they’re misbehaving.

3. Really listen to your children

Finally, it’s important to really listen to your children and try to understand their perspective. When you take the time to listen to your children, they’ll feel valued and respected, which will help foster a strong parent-child relationship
