Similarly he hasn’t made the connection between the fact that you’ve just spent a fortune having the wiring in the house sorted out because mice, attracted by the food left lying around in his room, have chewed through the electrical cabling. They talk all the time, but few can understand them. Why reading to a child is so important
just don’t mix. Parenting lesson plans should be instituted as early in the child rearing process as possible, because they will lay the foundation for a child’s social interactions.

In reality however there is no such thing as an ‘expert’ in the science of parenting and while many of the books published are excellent and can provide you with extremely valuable food for thought, at the end of the day, you must take the general points being made and then adapt them to your own particular circumstances. Parents need to “show up”, be present, and be engaged with a teen. It is liberating and healthy for parent and child. If a child can easily tell his or her parent about any problem he/she has, and the parent gives him/her full attention, ninety percent of the trust deficit between a parent and child ends here.

You do not need to have a degree in psychology or be a trained counselor to be able to be an effective parent. Being a parent means that you have responsibility for the formation of your child’s sense of wellbeing, of their sense of place in the world, and of how they in turn should behave in relation to those with whom they have influence during their lives.
