WHAT IS A CHILDPROOF PARENT?
As parents we childproof our environment to make the world safe for our children. We do this because our children don’t know what they don’t know about how to keep themselves safe, physically, mentally, and even emotionally.
This principle applies to the parent in the same way. We get to be safe, too. In the parent’s case, we get to ensure that our whole self is cared for, even though we now have children. We also get to shore up the skills needed to help cushion us from what our children bring us.
Childproof parents simultaneously empower and preserve themselves as individuals while raising happy, healthy, respectful, and responsible children.
CHILDPROOF PARENTING is about you and you as parent.
