A Little about the Positive Parenting Course
The author of the course (herself a mother since 1979) shares some of the mistakes that parents make that stop them from having a great relationship with their children and enjoy parenting. Here are some tricky truths about why parents have a hard time with their kids and the biggest blunders we make:
You’re not showing them you care enough. I’m not saying you’re not looking after them or caring for them, they need a different kind of ‘care’ They won’t care how much you know until they know how much you care! You may think they know and be surprised how much of your behaviour makes them think you don’t!
You think you can control them! You can’t – the only person you have ‘control’ of is You!
You’re using the wrong language; you really do need to ‘mind your language’ around them – When you say ‘Don’t’ you actually encourage them to do! Ditch your ‘Don’ts’, sit on your ‘Buts’ and lose your ‘Trys’
You’re too strict and too restrictive – laying down the law can often build resentment and rebellion in your kids – Keep them close by letting go! Find a way of letting go of those apron strings.
You over react and keep the distance between you – Learn to Respond not React, it builds up trust and openness and a better relationship.
You’re looking at the glass half empty (or completely empty!) My view is it’s always completely full, even when only half filled with liquid the rest is full of air and that’s important – Start wearing Rose Coloured Glasses and seeing what’s good about situations.
