Benevolent parenting, also known as positive parenting, is becoming increasingly popular. This approach is shaped by parents’ concern to put themselves in their children’s shoes to understand what they are going through and to support them in their crises, learning and development. No, it’s not about fulfilling all the wishes of the little ones or making them kings of children, but listening to the needs of the child. In addition, the whole thing is based on recent research in the field of neuroscience – i.e. brain development – and shows how important empathy is in communication between parents and children. Several books follow this path and support parents who have chosen this educational path. Here is a selection of the most popular:
