You CAN have a great relationship with your child!

On this episode, I’m going to tackle a Modern Parenting 101 topic: building a warm and positive parent-child relationship.

The topics that I believe are that are critical in getting right are topics that I’m calling Modern Parenting 101.

So far on this podcast, I’ve covered 3 out of 5 Modern Parenting 101 topics. Number 1 was parenting with confidence, number 2 was effective discipline techniques, and number 3 was all about kids and technology.

Today’s topic is the 4th Modern Parenting 101 topic, and it’s on the parent-child relationship – and when this relationship works well, most everything else falls into place, so putting effort into building – or repairing – your relationship with your child is critical.
