Children can be sweet, endearing little creatures when snuggled in our laps, but sometimes - especially when hungry, tired, or frustrated - they can turn into little roaring monsters!
Whining, crying, throwing, hitting, and outright refusing to cooperate… these are common behaviors for young children in emotional distress.
But - trust me - they don't want to behave like this.
They want to feel peaceful, joyful. Just like you!
However, unlike an adult, a child's immature brain is not able to quickly find reasonable solutions to issues.
What's a frazzled parent to do?
Based on your own upbringing and personality, your instinct may be to threaten, punish, bribe, or cajole.
Hey… I'm not judging. Parenting is tough! It's hard to keep your wits about you when your child is acting irrationally. I've been guilty of all of the above ineffective techniques when I'm feeling stressed out.
However, the latest brain research on child development clearly tells us that these strategies aren't the best for your child's long-term emotional health.
But there is a better way to handle these issues - a kinder, more loving approach that is a MILLION TIMES more effective and healthier in the long run.
We're talking “emotionally healthy and resilient in adulthood” kind of effective. Powerful stuff!
The Loving Discipline Workshop
My Loving Discipline workshop helps parents find the calm in their approach to discipline. I don't "do" rewards or punishments. Instead, my approach focuses on discipline techniques like compassion, choices, respectful language, and a playful spirit and age-appropriate and effective limit-setting techniques. I’ll share how to bring this approach to life in your home.
During my 90-minute workshop, you’ll learn:
5 highly effective LOVE-FOCUSED discipline techniques that are easy to remember because they come from a place you already know very well - deep inside your own heart.
Why LOVE CONQUERS ALL - and why boundaries must be part of the equation.
How to use the POWER OF LOVE and compassion to forgive yourself for your parenting mistakes and heal the emotional wounds. (I know you need this - you know you need it, too.)
