Parents are the executives of the family. They provide leadership through the establishment of rules, roles, and structure. Proactive rather than reactive parenting  is the key to success. The time, effort, and investment put into setting up a structure for parenting and family pays dividends over the years. 

Boundaries Choices Consequences

The family is the first place where children learn about boundaries, choices, and consequences. Families that do a good job with these developmental issues they set their children up for success as they go into the world and apply the same principles.

When families are at their best they are supportive, caring, empathic, and do a good job of balancing the needs of the individual and the group. 

waVe Families

Silicon Valley Therapy uses a program called waVe families. waVe stands for ‘with a Vision we all excel.’ We created this program to help parents and children work together. Too often children see parents as the sole obstacles to their happiness. With waVe families, the rules change and the obstacles change. Learn more by contacting us and turn your parenting from a battle to a blessing.
