You have made a miracle - no, not just your kids but making the choice to carve time out from your busy life to focus mindfully on your children and your relationship with them. I'm deeply grateful to be joining with you in this process.
If you grew up in a family where you felt safe, soothed and truly seen, this will be a piece of cake. If you are like over 2/3 of adults in the US, your childhood had some challenges and those may make this process a bit more challenging. Take your time, get support and remember this is a process. We are looking for progress not perfection.
You want your kids to listen, maybe even the first time you ask. We are going to get you there but first a few basics.
- Do you feel safe, soothed and truly seen today? Do you have connections among your family or friends that really support you?
- How well are you managing your stress? Even if you are positive with your kids, if your inner life is in emergency mode, your kids will sense that and reflect it.
You will find attached to this class some tools to help you improve self care and well-being. You may want to start there for a couple of weeks before you begin taking action steps with your kids. And even if you don't, be kind to yourself in this process.
Remember, progress, not perfection.
So let's get started.
- All parents and caregivers who seek more positive approaches to discipline and communication.
Whatever you give attention to, you will get more of.
In this section, you are going to learn how to set the stage for cooperation. Start by filling your child's "attention bank" with predictable, regular one-on-one time together. This is likely to reduce their bids for negative attention and you will likely see positive results in a very short time.
If you were already playing one-on-one regularly you are ready to get going onto step two. I hope you found some fun activities to share with your child. Some of you may have already noticed a difference in behavior.
Take a breath and reflect on your accomplishments. Celebrate. Tell family and friends about your progress. You've got this.
During this lecture, we will discuss Self-Control and Self-Regulation. Most parents say they want their kids to have self-control. What they mean is make good choices and think about outcomes of the their actions.
