The quality of our family relationships and social structures are a cornerstone of partnership systems. Partnership- or domination-oriented families are a template for politics, economics, and other social institutions. Findings from psychology and neuroscience show that the degree of partnership or domination in our foundational human relations — between women and men, and between parents and children — directly affects how our brains develop.
Partnership parenting encourages caring family relations that respect and empower children. In partnership systems, high quality childcare and caregiver training, good healthcare and multicultural, gender-balanced education is valued economically. Young people learn to respect themselves, others, and the environment and co-create a healthy future.
