For many, the way we parent our own children often mirrors the way we ourselves were raised, whether we do this consciously or not. You may think this only natural since one’s parents are the primary reference point for how to communicate, relate, and respond to others and to life. As they say, “You don’t know what...

He did the same with me, because he thought that was the way discipline...
