Positive Parenting Style: Dolphin Parenting

03 August 2013

It takes a village to raise a child. ~African Proverb
Raising a child is not an easy task. I only have one and it has not been an easy journey for us. I am a semi-tiger mom which I also combine with other positive parenting style to balance the tiger's strictness with something that's laid back.

I read an article about this new parenting style called Dolphin Parenting. Shawn Achor, a Harvard-trained psychologist who teaches at Wharton Business School and author of The Happiness Advantage and Before Happiness, said that parents should try out dolphin parenting. So why is it supposedly the parenting style that everyone should follow instead of Tiger or Helicopter Parenting?

Dolphin Parents are those who raise playful, sociable and smart kids because they're flexible, playful and kind parents.

I will stick though with my own parenting style, a combination of all the parenting styles mentioned above. My son needs the strictness that only a tiger mom can give, the playfulness of the dolphin mom and the "hovering" of the helicopter mama.

Time print postcards while my son is asleep. Good night!
