Practice Balanced Parenting


We promise that balanced parenting involves exactly zero minutes of standing on one foot or holding a wobbly handstand. It’s a method of effective parenting based in decades of research that encourages adults to guide with a balance of expectations, protection, and trust. It involves understanding adolescence so you can work with (instead of against) teen development. Balanced parents are stable presences and clear communicators, loving their kids unconditionally so they can meet their needs and provide boundaries. Think of these parents as human lighthouses, guiding the way. Balanced parenting is what we’re all about, and we can teach you.
