A parent that does not understand tough love will struggle to raise their children. There are two sides to this approach. There is the "tough" side of it and the "love" side. When our children have to face consequences for their actions it can be very tough and painful. For us as parents sometimes more than for our kids.
It is also important to remember to bring love into your approach. A child should be taught that consequences come from their actions. They are not loved less by their parents due to bad choices. Even a child that makes a long string of bad decisions should still feel their parent's love. This makes consequences easier to understand and separates love from justice.
