Parenting Skills 101
Its been awile since I have practiced parenting. Didn't have to do it too much while raising our kids. They were perfect and have since moved on. I have a friend who is a single mom with a 11 year old boy. The mom need to learn some parently skills with this kid. He is starting to act up....well, you all know what a preteen is like.
I explained to the mom about setting limits, consequences, establishing quality time between the two, etc. What about positive reinforcement on good behavior? Anyone used this technique? Does it work? Any additonal advice or reference books would be helpful.
