Among many skills, parents become more capable of setting firm limits in a loving way without anger and threats.  They also feel confident in handing children’s problems back to them without regrets. As a result, the family is more happy and harmonious, plus the children are more likely to grow up equipped with character, compassion and problem-solving skills to help them thrive in the real world.
