At some point during the class it was inevitable that a parent would raise their hand and ask me, So, do you have children of your own? I used to hate the question because of the implication that without my own children I really didnt know what it was really like as a parent.
I must admit that I didnt know everything that a parent faces every day, but I understood children.For years I worked in the hospital setting with some of the most disturbed children you could imagine. What made my job, and those that worked with me, so difficult was this simple fact - if we didnt succeed with them and their families there was nowhere else to send them. We were often the last stop and because of that we didnt have time to just hope our strategies worked.For us our focus had one goal - lets do what works.After working in that setting for years and then in my private practice I can tell you what works with children of all ages.
In fact, when I had my own children I heard from skeptical parents again - Just wait until you have your own, its not the same.Well, now I do have 4 children of my own and three of them are triplets. Yes, you read that right, we got 3 boys all at once. For all of the parents who thought it would be so much tougher I can tell you that actually children arent really that tough.
At least parenting doesnt have to be like a job you hate.While my children can be loud at times, we are constantly complimented on how well they behave in public.In this book Ill share with you:- The Key To Motivating Your Child- The Real Secret To Building Their Self Confidence- Discipline That Works- Why Parents Struggle (Especially With Discipline)- And some real life examples of how to apply these life changing principles...and much, much more!If youve ever felt like youre missing out on all the joys of being a parent, then this book was written just for you.
