“Parenting is more than a role. It’s a behaviour, It’s an example, It’s a template of character. It’s a relationship.” Phinnah Chichi.
The Solutions-Minded Parenting Model (SMPM) is a relationship-based parenting model with a blend of other evidence-based, and parent tested models which focuses on the parent’s evolving relationship with their children as they become teens and young adults.
Many great parenting models cover from ages 0-19 yr. in general, yet we know that there is a major shift that happens when our children become teenagers and a specific parenting model to cover that phase is necessary. Other great models such as (positive parenting, conscious parenting, and the Non-Violent Resistance models) are very vital and foundational to the Solution Minded Parenting Model.
The adolescent years are riddled with lots of changes and challenges. Changes in the brain development of adolescents, changes in their views, challenges in their friendship’s groups, with schoolwork/choices/behaviours expectations, negative peer pressure and including the rise in technology requires an evolved parenting approach that works for both adolescents and their parents.
An approach that recognises the teens as the growing adults they are becoming and treats them in an evolved manner that connects more to the developing brain of the teenager.
Solution Minded Parenting focuses on nurturing a wholesome relationship between parents and teens through evolved communication and connection.
A wholesome relationship that fosters the mental and emotional growth of teenagers.
The solution-minded parent’s values are
Commitment to understanding the changes.
Peace & Respect as we parent them through the challenging and non-challenging times
Being Positive in how we think and talk.
Our Growth as our teens grow.
