Parenting is challenging, sometimes extremely so. In this section we examine the authoritarian and permissive parenting styles, and offer alternatives. Here are articles to help parents move beyond authoritarian and permissive parenting styles into loving parenting that promotes personal responsiblity in children - using Inner Bonding for conflict resolution and to promote self-esteem, emotional health and spiritual connection in children.

Today, notice all self-judgment as a form of control. "If I judge myself, then others won't judge me." "If I judge myself, I can get myself to perform, to accomplish, to do it right - and then people will like me." "If I judge myself as being flawed and therefore the cause of others' rejecting behavior, I can continue the illusion that I cause - and therefore control - others' feelings and behavior." Today, notice your false beliefs about judgment and control.
