Brief Description of Aware Parenting
Aware Parenting is a philosophy of child rearing that has the potential to change the world. Based on cutting-edge research and insights in child development, it questions most traditional assumptions about children. Parents who follow this approach raise children who are secure, bright, compassionate, nonviolent, and drug free. Aware Parenting consists of a recognition of children's attachment needs, non-punitive discipline, and the prevention and healing of stress and trauma. The Aware Parenting Institute is an international organization with certified instructors in 20 countries who are helping to spread this philosophy around the world. These instructors work independently and are not employees or subcontractors of the Aware Parenting Institute.
