However, many parents do struggle in raising their children. This does not mean that they are bad parents. It means that they need to hone the parenting skills they already have and get some new skills as well. Parents can always benefit from becoming informed about some of the most effective parenting techniques in this method, in order to become more effective parents to their children.
One particular system or method that experts know to be quite effective in raising children would be to rely on this common sense parenting method. Common Sense Parenting or CSP is a practical parenting process, which is based on everyday skills, applying these skills naturally to different situations. Sometimes it is easy to detect these natural consequences. An example is a child spilling a water vase and flowers from roughhousing.

Common sense parenting includes logical strategies as well as easy-to-learn techniques that address issues on discipline, communication, decision-making, self-control, family relationships, and education.
