Do you experience more frustration than joy in your family?
Are you tired of bedtime struggles?
Do you wish your kids would follow through?
Are you worn down by whining and poor attitudes?
Parenting today is harder than ever. Parents compete for airspace with social media, video games and busy extracurricular schedules. Even the most patient parent can become frustrated trying to get their kids to listen. So, you might raise your voice, shout, threaten-just to get their attention. You worry about your kids- will they ever be more responsible? By the end of the day, you’re exhausted, depleted, and overwhelmed. Therefore, you may find yourself giving in, giving up, or yelling. Maybe you even question if you are a good enough parent. If this sounds familiar, you are not alone, and it doesn’t have to be this way.
While children don’t come with an instruction manual, the good news is that you can learn effective parenting skills. Positive discipline tools can help you teach your child or teen the skills they need to be successful, happy adults. After all, isn’t that the goal? Parenting The Positive Discipline way can help you manage many difficult behaviors including temper tantrums, sibling fighting, bedtime hassles, tattling, lying, chores, whining, homework battles, and biting.
How can Positive Discipline help?
We all want our children to grow up to be capable young adults. Positive Discipline tools for parenting can help them get there. Positive Discipline is a way of teaching children important skills in a way that is firm yet kind. Most people learn best when they feel connected and safe. Above all, the goal of positive discipline is to teach children by first creating a safe supportive relationship. Then, correcting your child’s will be easier in the long run. Positive Discipline teaches and builds:
- emotional regulation
- social skills
