Authoritarian Parenting Recovery Group

on October 10, 2015

I have been having a conversation over on The Peaceful Papa’s Facebook page and someone suggested that I start a group for parents who used to be authoritarian in nature (spanking, punishments, cry-it-out, etc.) and have since decided to become peaceful parents. A sort-of recovery group, if you will. I am very seriously considering starting a group like this, and would like to gauge the interest level in this endeavor. It would be a group aimed at people who have made the switch after becoming parents (like myself), but I would expand it to include anyone who feels they are recovering from an authoritarian style of parenting (non-parents who were raised in that way and feel it was wrong, parents who knew their upbringing was harmful to them and decided to take a gentler path from day 1 with their children, etc.).

My question for you is, would you be interested in joining a group like this? To receive and offer advice and encouragement for this change in mentality. To connect with other people who share your struggles and desires. To be a part of a shift in the way our society as a whole views the role of the parent.

Please comment below and let me know what you think!
