Kids—just like adults—are a work in progress. Sometimes we place unfair expectations on our kids and their behavior, forgetting that they are still “under construction.” They are still piecing together the building blocks of emotional intelligence and responsibility, to name just a few of the skills they’ll need to lead happy lives. We hope our children will grow to be kind, well-adjusted, happy adults, but they need a strong foundation from a young age. In The CASTLE Method, Dr. Phil’s resident parenting expert Donna Tetreault outlines the CASTLE method, the tools you’ll need to build a strong foundation for your family: compassion, acceptance, security, trust, love, expectations plus education. With these essential components in your tool belt, you’ll be equipped to build a strong foundation for your children to thrive, and a home that will make them feel safe and loved.
