Dr. Laura Markham was the person who introduced me to gentle parenting with her relationship based model, focusing on building relationships over behaviour management.

She is as a Clinical Psychologist and the author of the books:

  • Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids: How to Stop Yelling and Start Connecting 
  • Peaceful Parent, Happy Siblings: How to Stop the Fighting and Raise Friends for Life 
  • The Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids WORKBOOK

The founding editor of AhaParenting.com, Dr. Laura also serves as a parenting expert for many websites. Over 130,000 parents subscribe to her weekly email. Check out her website and get on the subscription list.

Here’s a sample page on why Time In is better than Time Out. 

And a one minute video summarising her top five tips for good parenting, for which you can get enormous amounts of resources to implement from her website, books and YouTube.
