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.
