Quality parent-child relationships are ones that are mutually enriching and promote the emotional, mental growth of children and parents alike. Parents often need skills to gain the cooperation and mutual respect of their children, to be more effecting correcting problem behaviors. They need to know how to create an environment for emotionally safe, positive and open communications -- which builds healthy relationships. Therapy can support parents to set firm limits yet avoid punitive tactics, resolving conflicts in ways that empower children to cooperate and parents to transform conflict into growth and trust, and motive children to willingly contribute and maximize potential.
