I really like the idea of taking a positive approach when I catch my kids lying instead of being angry and punishment. It seems the more positive approach to a child lying will reinforce the parent-child bond and relationship much more than the alternative.
3 unbelievably simple tips to become great parents. 1 - children need a minimum of 8 touches during a day to feel connected to a parent. 2 - each day, children need one meaningful eye-to-eye conversation with a parent. 3 - there are 9 minutes during the day that have the greatest impact on a child.
Although I don't believe everything a child does is directly because of a parent, I think this makes some good connections between problems and what could be changed to help it. Also, the Authoritarian and Authoritative descriptions appear to be switched.
