featuring Tonya Ratliff, LPC, NCC, ACS
Tonya believes that implementing structure, maintaining consistency and managing expectations combine to form what she calls the Three Pillars of Effective Parenting. These principles apply to children of all ages, though the younger the child, the easier these principles are to implement the first time.
In her private counseling practice, Tonya focuses her efforts on educating and empowering parents to take back control of their household by implementing these basic techniques of effective parenting. Making these types of changes will not occur overnight. Sustained change takes time and practice.
