The 7 Traits of Effective Parenting

This is a simple framework of seven powerful traits that will help you grow in your parenting journey, and be the most effective parent you can be.

The seven traits of effective parenting, written by Danny Huerta, Vice President of the Parenting and Youth department, are well researched, based on the foundations provided through Scripture, enriched by years of application in family counselling settings, as well as the great research surrounding the authoritative style of parenting.
