Healthy Parenting

 
Be patient.

Patience is the key. Your child learns to be respectful by being treated respectfully.

Practice, practice, practice.

Your child learns by practicing what you want him to learn. Be a consistent teacher.

Focus praise on your child's behavior.

Your love and acceptance for him is unconditional…it’s his behavior you want to change.

Be positive.

Avoid power struggles by keeping your tone of voice positive. You and your child are a team, working toward the same goal.

It's never too late.

You can always start teaching a child a new behavior.

It's not the end of the world if you make a discipline mistake.

There's no such thing as a perfect parent. Get right back on track with the teaching solutions in Behavior Checker

Family Health Care agrees the best parenting is based in love and a loving response to children's behavior.

 

What we choose to do every day in response to kids' behavior from 0-18 years of age actually has more impact on a child's lifelong health, learning and behavior than we ever thought.  In short, Parenting is Healthcare.  The way we treat a tantrum is as important as the way we treat a temperature. How we manage kids' behavior hundreds of times a day is at the core of how we prevent every health crisis we are dealing with: bullying, obesity, depression, anxiety, heart disease, drug addiction, violence, sexual abuse, cancer, diabetes, and more.

To prevent emotional and physical health problems, parents deserve, and actually need to know, what to do at home every day, hundreds of times a day, about common, but frustrating, misbehaviors. And now this information is right here, right now. Pediatric healthcare agrees: It's critical to know how to discipline without hitting, spanking, slapping, threatening, insulting, humiliating or shaming.


Behavior Checker supports the new public health movement of preventing toxic stress in children’s lives to improve their health, learning and behavior by helping parents and caregivers manage children’s common behavioral issues through evidence-based strategies that develop consistent, caring, supportive and protective relationships with children.
