Do you lose your patience with your child?
Is your reactivity getting in the way of how you want to parent?
Are you always telling your children that they “don’t listen?”
You need skills that you probably never learned growing up. There is no manual for learning how to be a calm, patient, parent. I know from my own experiences. But help is available.
Despite having studied and become an expert on child behavior and development, when I had my children I realized that parenting activates a lot of unconscious programming. I determined to learn how to work with my children so they would co-create their future and contribute in productive ways to my family while thriving and in realizing their own potential.
After completing my Ph.D., I studied Parent Effectiveness Training with Tom Gordon, Ph.D. and became a lead teacher while I was in Chicago. I used P.E.T. with my children very successfully and have expanded this work with teaching parenting skills through the years.
In addition, I did post-doctoral work at Rush-Presbyterian Hospital in the Children’s Day School where I worked with many children individually and in group therapy. I learned to recognize learning disorders that are often missed in schools and by standard visual screenings. It is important to build a child’s self-esteem and any issues are often best resolved with educating their parents on how to communicate better with their children.
Learn communication skills that make parenting more effortless and learning some time management tools helps make your home more efficient and easier to manage. Children complicate daily tasks and learning how to manage these go a long way to living harmoniously and happily.
