Parenting With Confidence: Preventing Power Struggles

75 Views

Do you feel like your child never listens and is always trying to control things? Did it ever occur to you that maybe your use of power is what is inviting that behavior? Most children have little to no control over their lives and are desperately seeking some power and control. When we, as parents find ways to share control, we invite our children’s cooperation. As a result, we avoid the daily tug-of-war that happens throughout our days and find more ease in getting out the door in the morning or through the nightly routine.

In this class you will learn new ways to share control — and in turn, create children that want to be in partnership with you. It's a matter of adopting a few simple habits, such as using limited choices as a way of both avoid and manage challenging behaviors and emotions. Once you’ve mastered this skill, your friends & family will be eager to learn what your secrets are to getting your child to listen and cooperate.

This seminar is a MUST ATTEND if you want to:

· Understand your child’s behaviors so you can be more effective at responding to them.

· Learn what works and what does not work in getting kids to cooperate and listen.

· Have a tool in your back pocket that will significantly decrease power struggles: getting out the door, during meals, getting into the car, getting dressed, going to bed, etc

Here is what we will cover in this action-packed training:

· How to Interpret Your Child’s Behavior: by understanding what is driving your child's behavior you will be more effective in responding to it (if you save a spot for no other reason, let this one be it!).

· Three Parenting Strategies That Backfire: You’ve seen other people use these tactics, tried them out and are confused about what to do.

· The Most Effective Way to Invite your Child’s Cooperation: You’ll learn how to offer your child some control while setting & holding firm limits.
