Parenting experts and researchers of brain development confirm that the best way to become an effective parent is to foster emotional connection and develop empathy with your child. With these skills you do not need to rely on yelling, nagging, threats or punishment. Instead, by learning effective communication strategies, including active listening and conflict resolution, you can learn how to influence rather than control your children.
