Parenting is challenging. Raising little humans takes a lot of thought, patience and emotional regulation. Most parents do not have the necessary skills to raise their children with psychological well being in mind. There is no manual that we are given to help raise children. Generally, we use what was modelled to us by our parents - or we do the exact opposite. At the same time as molding our children we are also trying to cope with our own emotions, work and relationships. Why do we feel we need to do this on our own?
90 percent of the problems we see in children can be helped with proper parental guidance. Teaching parents mindful discipline is the best way for us to prevent future mental health problems.
