Are you worried about your kids?
Maximize your parenting effectiveness.
Help your children become the successful, happy, respectful people you want them to become.
Parenting can be one of the most difficult jobs you ever undertake and watching a child who is struggling in some way can be a very painful experience. Children who are struggling with school work, having difficulty making friends and feeling like they belong, or who are angry all the time and lash out with disrespect can bring a great deal of distress to parents. When you have tried everything you can think of to help them and bring harmony back to your home and nothing has worked, it can leave you feeling frustrated and helpless.
Like most parents, you want your children to be happy and successful. Children who live up to their potential in school, have a group of friends whose company they enjoy, and who talk to you about their lives. You want to be respected and feel connected and involved in your children’s lives – and that they welcome your presence in their lives. You want to feel a part of their lives and like the things that you do as a parent have a positive impact on your children’s lives and the direction they are going as they grow up.
One of the reasons raising children is so difficult is that very few people ever receive any instruction in parenting. Lot’s of people are willing to give you their pithy advice, but when you listen to it all, much of it is contradictory. It is also difficult because the world has changed greatly for children and teenagers over the past few decades. Video games, the internet, cable television, the general availability of information, and a myriad of other things make for a very different world for today’s children. Things that held true when you were growing up don’t hold true for your children. It can be difficult for you to even understand what your children’s day to day experience is like.
You can learn effective techniques to help your children. These include effective discipline and structure, good communication, and how to deal with developmental changes. Though raising children will never be an easy job, when armed with the right tools you can make the difference you want in your children’s lives and help them be happy, successful, and a source of pride.
