Partnership is a pathway to power through connection.
When people feel connected to each other, more power to one is more power to all. The more you give, the more you have. It’s a win/win game. In partnership, you resolve conflicts creatively by focusing on what works for the whole partnership instead of making right/wrong judgments that weaken connections and lead to power struggles. Partnership-oriented parents don’t seek power over their children because they enjoy being powerful with their children.
