In this webinar, Dr. Edlynn will present the ingredients of autonomy-supportive parenting, summarize how this approach benefits kids and parents, and discuss how to resist controlling impulses and support your child’s autonomy in the real world of parenting. Whether you want more independent kids, less parenting stress, or a more authentic connection with your growing, changing child, the autonomy-supportive framework gives smart, overwhelmed parents a helpful roadmap to raising a healthy child. Bring your current parenting dilemmas to the Q&A to brainstorm how autonomy-supportive parenting can help you find your way!
