The research is resounding and clear. Warm and strict, that's where you want. That is the parenting style that far exceeds the other one's. So, I want to have that weekly relationship with my child. That a lot of warmth coming for that is proportionate and realistic but I also want a set - a chief parenting goal, their ability to do things when they don't feel like it. That's the top psychological muscle for our kids who want to develop. Nothing better predicts success on our culture than our kid's capacity to do things when they don't feel like it or any adult for that matter. And that's what we are doing on discipline.
