The C.A.S.T.L.E Method is based on seven foundational, evidence-based principles that form the CASTLE Method: compassion, acceptance, security, trust, love, expectations plus education. This gentle guide simplifies the parent-education dilemma by organizing professional research that can be adapted to any circumstance. These tools are used to build a strong foundation to both empower, and to create the best version of yourself, your children, and your family.
Dr. Regine and Donna discuss their own personal experiences, both growing up and now as parents themselves and go into depth about specific situations and which particular principle of the C.A.S.T.L.E Method would be best to utilize. In the end, Donna says each individual situation is unique, just as each kid and set of parents are and making those decisions will come from experience.
