Aware Parenting is based on 3 aspects or pillars:

1. Attachment style parenting

2. Non-Punitive Discipline

3. Helping children heal from stress and trauma

Dr. Solter states that most behavior issues in children are a result of stress. She believes that there are 3 reasons why a child “misbehaves”.

1. The child has unmet needs. This could be anything from hunger or sleepiness to needing attention or connection.

2. The child lacks information. For example: We have to teach a child that the wall is not for drawing.

3. They are holding stress or unhealed trauma.
