Family Bliss not working out the way you had envisioned it?

Few things are as aggravating or exhausting as power struggles with kids. If you find yourself nagging, arguing or threatening, being ignored by your kids or having your authority challenged Parenting Support may be right for you and your family.

Rather than focusing on how to react to oppositional, obnoxious, passive-aggressive or disrespectful behaviors, we’ll concentrate on how to prevent these behaviors from happening in the first place as well as what to do when it feels a tornado has hit the house.

In Parenting Support, you’ll learn how to create a relationship with your child(ren) in which you can generate cooperation and connection  without threats or punishments. We’ll explore practical, effective strategies for reducing stress and conflict in the parent child relationship— including:

  • Promote mutual respect

  • Reduce whining and complaining

  • Reduce endless arguing

  • Reduce parental nagging

  • Value family togetherness

  • Encourage children to show love for other people

  • Encourage husbands and wives to work together as a team

  • Setting and maintaining boundaries

  • Following through to build accountability

  • Increasing positivity

  • Building trust and mutual respect

  • Increase love and harmony in the home

  • Better understand the whys of your child’s behaviors

Have you ever made a commitment to be more positive in your relationship with your children, only to have your good intentions unravel the minute you trip over the soccer gear on the steps?

Increasing positivity in your approach to parenting can reduce stress and conflict in your relationship with your kids, and can make it easier to generate commitment, cooperation and accountability from them. Nonetheless, learned behaviors, cultural norms and the simple demands of daily life can make it hard to maintain a positive focus.

Parenting Support will look at some common negative patterns in our interactions and will present a variety of positive alternatives. Whether you wish to motivate your kids to do something, stop and correct inappropriate or otherwise negative behavior, or even reinforce them for a job well done, there’s a good chance we’ll find a more positive way to do it!
