    Parenting Positively: Parenting Skills for Parents of Children between 6 and 12
    (Barnardos, 2015) Tusla; Barnardos
    Being a parent is probably the most important job we can do in our lives. To parent positively we need to understand what it takes to do the job well. The more we understand about a child’s development and needs, the more we can be aware of what it takes to create healthy environments for children to thrive. Throughout human history, people have lived in small, close-knit communities, but today not all parents have relatives nearby to support them and give guidance in child raising. In some ways we intuitively know how to make good and wise decisions about parenting, but sometimes the stresses and mixed messages of the world can make it difficult. Therefore, we need to take every opportunity to learn more about what it takes to parent effectively.
