Respectful Parenting as a Team - Happy as a Mother

Respectful Parenting as a Team


with Author Janet Lansbury



Our children are looking for and needing a connection with us, and our main job as parents is to foster a secure attachment with our children. Does disciplining our child and “making them unhappy” interfere with our bond? Is there a difference between respectful boundaries and being permissive? How do we handle discipline and still build that relationship positively? This can be done with respectful parenting where the goal is to see the real need behind the behavior and that the behavior is the communication of their need. In this episode, Janet and I discuss what respectful parenting is, the role it plays in discipline, why partners need to work together as a team, and how to respect your partner’s parenting style.

Janet Lansbury’s respectful parenting advice (www.janetlansbury.com) is quoted and shared by millions of readers worldwide. Inspired by the pioneering philosophy of her friend and mentor, Magda Gerber, Janet encourages parents and child care professionals to perceive babies as unique, capable human beings with natural abilities to learn without being taught; to develop motor and cognitive skills; communicate; face age-appropriate struggles; initiate and direct independent play for extended periods; and much more. She is the author of two bestselling books, Elevating Child Care: A Guide to Respectful Parenting and No Bad Kids: Toddler Discipline Without Shame. Janet is also the creator and host of “Janet Lansbury Unruffled,” one of the most downloaded parenting podcasts on the web and recommended listening by The Washington Post.  She also enjoys facilitating parent-child guidance classes, consulting with families and ECE professionals, and spending time with her three children, ages 28, 24, and 19.
