NO MORE LOSING IT – GETTING TO CALM WHEN YOUR KIDS ARE NOT
When it comes to developing great relationships and great kids we know our children need us to be cool, calm and collected. Yet the biggest challenge in parenting is being cool, calm and collected. Why is it so hard? and What can we do about it? are the topics of this informative and useful workshop.
You will leave learning how to increase your own maturity and how to decrease your knee-jerk reactions when your kids push your buttons. And let’s face it – our buttons are getting pushed all the time because our kids are masterful at finding them. Whether it is fighting us when putting them in a car seat, refusing to do their homework, not getting out of bed on time or not getting home by curfew, they can get our blood boiling. How we act when our blood boils is what we have in our control and the key to great parenting.
You will learn how to:
- Control yourself instead of your kid
- Develop and follow your parenting principles
- Let your feelings guide you and your thinking drive you
- Respond effectively to your children’s tantrums, aggression, negativity, disobedience, defiance, sibling battles and other frustrating behaviors.
- Recognize your triggers
