Does the tough love parenting method assist children with growing and evolving into mature, responsible balanced adults?
It is surely a way to work with children, but does it benefit children more so than simple love?
No, it does not. Then why do parents still use tough love parenting?
Every parent has used it to some degree. It is the process of approaching and raising children from the ego-perspective using force.
Tough love parenting forces children to be a certain way through, usually, verbal, emotional and sometimes physical abuse. Abuse is tough but not in a loving way.
Parents use tough love parenting to deal with situations because they have no other coping mechanisms to use. Parents call this abuse tough love because they want to be seen and feel as though they are good loving parents.
Parents who use the tough love parenting method want to feel it is actually good for their child’s development when in fact it is detrimental. Please remember that soul-based parenting includes allowing, observing, learning and understanding. Ego-based parenting relates to forcing, judging, proving and blaming.
