With all the different approaches to discipline parents can take, what is the bottom line when it comes to setting limits and enforcing them?
How many times have you complained about kids today being spoiled or having a sense of entitlement? And, whether your children are tots or teens, how many times have you found yourself caving into your own child’s demands because you were just too tired to hold the line? Well, you’re not alone! It takes strength, persistence, and an eye toward the future to provide the kind of consistent guidance children need.

Tune into Marti and Erin’s free-flowing discussion (and candid confessions) about the challenges of becoming “authoritative” parents and the importance of uniting with other parents committed to that same, effective approach.
