Let’s be honest, when we don’t see our kids succeeding, we parents feel like failures. You know what I’m talking about…that little voice goes off in our head saying “You’re doing it wrong!”
And yet we keep doing things the same way? Isn’t that the definition of insanity—doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result?
So in the spirit of doing things differently and helping your child become a happy, healthy, confident kid. I will be providing you with parenting strategies and tactics that will ensure your child’s success.
Let’s get started!
One of the BIGGEST mistakes parents make is NOT following through on what they say! If you don’t want to constantly be angry and frustrated with your kid, you need to…
Say What You Mean and Mean What You Say!
There is no faster way for you to LOSE credibility with your child than NOT following through on what you say to them. If you say there will be a repercussion for not doing chores (they
DO have them, don’t they?) there had better be one and it MUST be enforced!
If not, your child will start to take over the house.
Over the years, I’ve pretty much seen it ALL. I’ve seen kids having the run of the household, cursing at and even hitting their parents!
This type of behavior usually boils down to a lack of discipline, boundaries, and structure. So regardless of how much your kid says, “I’m sorry” if they’ve committed the “crime” they must do the “time!”
Say what you mean and mean what you say and I will see your kid at the top!
