Empowered Parenting

James Lehman’s website features articles and advice for achieving what he calls Empowered Parenting. The article currently at the top of his page offers answers to the top five concerns his subscribers had about their offspring going back to school. This website focuses on tweens and teens, and offers some insight into youth’s perspectives. Lehman seems to me to be very accepting of social constructions that probably create some of the reactions and behaviors parents don’t like. Still, because of that, the advice tends to be very pragmatic and immediately useable.

The main philosophy, that “you have to parent the child you have, not the child you wish you had,” is spot on.
