(Empathic Parenting) TEACH through Love: Why Supernanny is DEAD WRONG!

I’ve really had it with Supernanny.

The parenting tips  “Supernanny” Jo Frost gave went from being ill-informed to dead wrong in a matter of seconds with the dangerous advice given to the Joliet (sp) family and their son Patrick.

Telling these parents who have “trouble forgetting the trauma” they should “recognize his heart condition has not hindered him to understand – here in his brain – to understand to do things.” – is absolutely FALSE and frightening. …

Empathy, self-regulation and consideration are pre-frontal cortex skills which are built with tolerance and compassion – not authority and control.
