It’s all in the family.
Families Matter isn’t just our name, it’s our rallying cry! We firmly believe that the answer to most of society’s problems is stronger families!
Our client is the family, or what serves as the family. Family comes in many varieties today and we want to be available to all of them. It is not uncommon that kids are being raised by older siblings, aunts, uncles, grandparents, foster care… etc. When we talk about families we are referring to the kids and whomever is filling the parental role, who is responsible, in charge?
A Range of Family Structure
Two parent families, this includes intact families or families where parents don’t live together. It is also not uncommon that extended family has a role in parenting.
Single parent when one parent is mostly absent or uninvolved leaving the parenting duties to the parent actually raising the kids/s.
Blended families, when new people or step parents are introduced it creates an all new dynamic that can impact the family.
This parenting philosophy can work regardless of the structure:
Kids should obey their parents because it is the right thing to do, and technically that’s the law, but it should also make the kids’ lives better, and the parent should parent in a way that inspires and nurtures respect, cooperation, and compliance.
