Positive parenting strategies include:

  • Building strong, nurturing family relationships and good communication.
  • Helping parents feel more confident and competent. As a result, parents are less depressed, less stressed, and have less conflict with their partners over parenting issues.
  • Using everyday situations and opportunities to help children learn pro-social skills and motivate them to do their best.
  • Planning ahead to prevent problems.
  • Staying calm and responding consistently and assertively when problems do occur.
  • Teaching children to regulate their own behaviour and emotions in constructive and non-harmful ways.
  • Looking after yourself as a parent (or grandparent, or other care-giver), including by learning more about regulating your own thoughts, feelings and behaviour to reduce stress.
