They’re like lighthouses: guiding their children so they don’t hit the rocks and sink, steadfast, keeping watch. They provide warmth and rules. Plus, lighthouse parenting is based in science. This illuminating parenting style will help you raise teens you want to hang out with, marvel at, and send into the world.
