5 Reasons Modern Parenting Is in Crisis
Keep Calm and Parent On author, Emma Jenner, effectively helps you see your child's behavior from an objective standpoint; one that puts you firmly in charge.  

Parents used to hold their children to a higher standard. Lately it seems that the expectations have been significantly lowered.

Thankfully, bad behavior is really just a habit that can still be corrected. 

Okay, but how do you correct it? Back in the day, it was not uncommon for parents to reprimand their son or daughter with physical force. A good spanking would knock some sense into them! 

Today, parents are very hesitant to lay a hand on their child, and for good reason.

But, if you establish boundaries and consequences, you will not need to consider a physical form of discipline to keep them in check. 

It's not too late to take control of your relationship with your child to make sure you are being the best parent possible. 

Emma Jenner explains why modern-day parenting has changed so dramatically, as well as how to understand why your kid is acting out—and how to fix it.

5 Reasons Modern-Day Parenting Is in Crisis:
  1. A fear of our children.
  2. A lowered bar for acceptable behavior.
  3. We've lost the village.
  4. A reliance on shortcuts.
  5. Parents put their children's needs ahead of their own.
