Positive Parenting - What Is It?

Positive parenting tries to strike a perfect balance between kindness and firmness not to demean the child. The development of one’s child is at the center of concerns

The term parenthood describes being a parent, regardless of the mode of education chosen for his child or baby. It applies to all types of families: couples, single-parent or blended families when raising a child. The role of the parent is to support their child as well as possible, whatever the difficulties encountered by the children or the family.

Parent refers to persons holding parental authority or responsibility. Parenthood includes all the functions assigned to parents to take care of and educate children. Parenthood is centered on the parent-child relationship and includes rights and duties for the development and fulfillment of the child. Positive parenting refers to parental behavior based on the child's best interests to raise and empower the child. This non-violent behavior provides him with recognition and assistance by establishing a set of benchmarks that promote his full potential development.

Essentials of Positive Parenting

positive parenting guides a positive and caring education of children daily. It allows them to pose new questions around their child's education and break with the traditional educational scheme. If the concept is already well established in some neighboring countries, especially in a school setting, it is not common in all families, especially in the Asian sub-continent.

Over the years, we have observed that parenthood is oriented towards childhood repression rather than constructive. Parents apply restrictive principles sometimes to destroy certain facets of their children. Positive parenting tries to strike a perfect balance between kindness and firmness not to demean the child. The development of one's child is at the center of concerns. The concept pays particular attention to the good development so that he does not feel any more shame or fear, does not feel any more insufficient in the parents' eyes. The emphasis is on trust and mutual respect between the child and his parents. However, positive parenting is not careless. It establishes routines, rules, and a framework so that children can flourish serenely at home and school.

The Main Pillars Of Positive Education

Positive parenting is based on these five fundamental principles:

Emotional and affective education: Responding to your child's emotional needs, strengthening love.

A framework and rules of life: Ensure the physical and moral security of the child, ensure his good health, ensure respect for oneself and others whether at school or home.

 Empathetic listening: Recognizing the child as an individual in his own right, being attentive to his emotions;

Progressive empowerment: Allowing the child to be master of his decisions, empowering him, reinforcing his sense of accomplishment;

Non-violent education: Exclude violence, whether physical or psychological (spanking, slapping, threats, screaming, deprivation, etc.), and favor benevolence.

Positive education often requires parents to question the educational models of our current society, sometimes forcing them to have to justify themselves to those around them. The concept requires learning to acquire useful knowledge to give his children all the tools necessary for their development.

It is better to look at the autobiography entitled The Untold Story of Yasmin Ghafoor to have a broader awareness regarding the subject and get a hold of the idea of positive parenting.
