Authoritative Parenting Counseling in Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor, CO

There are times we all wish that we could have do-overs with how we handle our children's behavior. Do you sometimes feel like the only way to make your children respond to your requests is by yelling because they have ignored you the first five times you spoke in a normal tone? When you start feeling this way on a weekly or even a daily basis, it could be time to change how you handle frustrating behaviors from your children. The counselors at Foundations Counseling know there are times when all parents would like to have a second chance to respond to a challenging situation with their children.

Authoritative parenting is a child-centric parenting style characterized by warmth, active listening, and fair and consistent discipline. Authoritative parents hold high expectations of maturity and encourage independence, but also set controls and limits on actions.

What You Can Expect with Authoritative Parenting Counseling

Our authoritative parenting counselors in our Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor offices can provide you with the tools you need to utilize an authoritative parenting approach with your children. While some behaviors are best handled using communication, other behaviors require loving discipline. Each child's temperament is different, and at Foundations Counseling, we can help you determine what works best for you, and help you put together a plan designed specifically for your family.

Children who grow up in authoritative parenting households tend to be more self-confident, develop healthier social skills, exhibit happier dispositions, and are better able to control their emotions. As parents, we always want to provide our children with the tools to succeed in life. By incorporating an authoritative approach to your parenting style, you can take the first step toward achieving that goal.

Call us today at 970-227-2770 to start your journey to a happier and healthier relationship with your children.

My husband and I are very pleased with our counselor, Seth Spurgeon, and feel like our sessions are effective in improving our marraige and family issues. I do wish sessions were more affordable.

Very easy to arrange for a preliminary free consultation. Staff at Loveland office are friendly and professional. It is a safe and non-threatening place to talk and receive actionable advice and counseling for a wide range of personal issues. Sessions do cost a bit but are well worth it in the long run! I always take away a positive idea or action plan after each session with my Councellor. Highly recommended!!!!
