Dr. Aliza Pressman Discusses The Five Principles of Raising Good Humans
According to Dr. Aliza Pressman, the key to raising good humans is to follow the five principles of parenting: relationship, reflection, regulation, rules, and repair. These principles provide a practical and flexible framework for raising children.
- Relationship: Building a strong and positive relationship with your child is crucial. This involves connecting with them, being attuned to their needs, and fostering a sense of trust and security.
- Reflection: Take the time to reflect on your own experiences and upbringing. Understand how your own background may influence your parenting style and be open to self-reflection and personal growth.
- Regulation: Help your child develop emotional regulation skills. Teach them how to manage their emotions, cope with stress, and navigate challenging situations in a healthy and constructive way.
- Rules: Establish clear boundaries and expectations for your child. Setting consistent rules and limits helps them understand what is expected of them and promotes a sense of structure and discipline.
- Repair: Recognize that mistakes and conflicts are a natural part of parenting. Focus on repairing and resolving conflicts in a respectful and compassionate manner. Model forgiveness, empathy, and problem-solving skills for your child.
Additionally, Dr. Pressman emphasizes the importance of embracing imperfection as a parent and letting go of the pursuit of perfection. Being open about your own mistakes and learning from them can foster growth and resilience in both you and your child.
