As parents, we want to have a close relationship with our kids and raise them to be independent and to do what’s right. But somewhere along the way, we may find ourselves in a struggle for control. Sound familiar? Join Dr. Roger Smith (author of Parenting with Influence) and Jim Mason (HSLDA President) on this week’s episode of Homeschool Talks as they examine the parent-child relationship dynamic. They’ll discuss what rules are for, why influencing children is more effective than trying to control them (and how to influence them!), and how homeschooling can provide an advantage for children in building strong family relationships.
