What is Daring Parenting?

Daring Parenting is stepping outside your comfort zone and setting boundaries for your children…and keeping them! This is one of the most difficult things for parents to do. The follow-through when you set limits for your kids is critical. If you don’t stick with the rules or boundaries or consequences you’ve set forth, you lose credibility with your children.

Why practice “Daring Parenting”? Because it works! Kids of all ages need to know that you, the parent are in charge. It’s a very scary feeling for an adolescent or teen to think they are the parent or if they’re put in the position to function like a parent. The bottom line is: you’re the adult and they are the child until they become an adult. When they are financially independent and functioning in the real world without your assistance. You get to step back, take a deep breath and know you did the best you can do.
