No matter how good their intentions, all parents at times resort to quick-fix parenting: things we do to stop a kid’s negative or annoying behavior.
Quick-fix parenting may temporarily ease a parent’s stress level, but it does little to positively impact a child’s future. Quick-fix parenting is a terrible long-term strategy for parenting.
Intentional parenting is the opposite of quick-fix parenting. Intentional parenting is a way to raise children to become healthy, independent young adults. It’s based on solid principles which, applied over time, actually result in less-stressed parents and happier, better-adjusted, and more successful kids. Intentional parenting means you’ve got more than good intentions; you’ve got a plan. And it’s always better to have a plan for dealing with the stuff that inevitably crops up between parents and their kids than it is to wing it.
