The level of cooperation parents get from their children is usually equal to the level of connection children feel with their parents.
Most of us grew up with the authoritarian model of parenting, which is based on the child’s fear of losing the parents love. Consider this:
- A parent-child relationship based on coercion and fear grows weaker every year.
- A parent-child relationship based on connection grows stronger every year.
- By the time our children are teenagers we need a relationship based on something stronger than coercion and fear.
As parents we either unconsciously parent exactly the way we were parented or we consciously try to parent the opposite of the way we were parented. Either way our parenting is influenced by how we were parented.
