Roles Parents Play Cards Pack (Downloadable PDF)


These role cards discuss parenting responses that either enable or restrict good enough parenting experiences. The demands and stress parents experience can cause them to react to parenting situations in more restrictive ways. Good enough parenting is based on idea that the majority of parenting roles used are more enabling rather than being restrictive.

Each set of roles (either the blue series of cards or the green series of cards) are linked. Once the parent is using the enforcer role, they are more likely to be the problem solver or critic. Also the reverse is opposite, once the parent is the encourager, they are more likely to be a choice giver or faith builder. Each role contains a thought, feeling and action. These role card exercises can be used in a group or individual settings.
