Empowering Parents, Couples and Families
Dr. Lowenstein wastes no time getting to the root of the problem. In fact, his down-to-earth, practical approach ensures that patient issues are addressed. “If there’s a problem, let’s deal with it, and solve it,” he says.
That’s why he empowers his patients by providing practical strategies that enable people to set boundaries around what’s appropriate—and what’s not.
“I empower parents to become parents, whether they are single, divorced or intact families. Many of us grew up with the because-I-said-so approach to parenting. The truth is, that’s more than enough. You don’t need to explain everything to your child.”
“When I work with couples, I help them to empower the couple relationship. It’s too easy to forget that before they were mom and dad, they were ‘honey’ and ‘pumpkin.’ The kids were born; life raced forward; and in the minutiae of life, they forgot to have a husband-and-wife relationship.”
“I understand that parenting and being part of a family are difficult tasks, but they are not impossible because people have been doing both of these for a long time. Kids aren’t made of fine china; they are more like sponges because they soak up what goes on around them. The important thing to realize is that parents should model appropriate communication, relationships, love and caring.”
