“Research has shown that strong, adaptive, and supportive parents are the best at insulating their children from all but the biggest catastrophes. Exposure to “toxic stress” in childhood can cause depression, alcoholism, obesity, violent behavior, heart disease, and even cancer in adulthood. Parents who are less sensitive, less attentive, or who regularly misinterpret their children’s needs can let too much stress trickle through, or even cause it in the first place, which can carry on to the next generation. Put simply, we tend to parent the way we were parented. What Kind of Parent Am I? uses a specially created survey to identify the areas parents have the most trouble with and directs them to the sections that will help. What Kind of Parent Am I? informs and empowers parents to deal directly with their unique challenges and become the best parents they can be.”
