Is your child unmotivated to study?
Is your child lacking self-confidence?
Is your child falling behind or failing in school?
Is your boy playing computer games like there is no tomorrow?
Is your girl spending way too much time on Facebook, Youtube, or her phone?
Do you feel guilty because you have not spent enough time with your kids?
Do you feel something is seriously missing in your relationships at home?
Are you having problems communicating with your kids?
Every time you try to teach them something or show them your good intentions, they think you are nagging or coercing them?
Why is parenting so difficult?
I’ve seen it all over the last 12 years - the headache, heartache, disappointment, disillusionment, agony, misery and pain – and yes finally, the hope, love, renewal, reconnection, joy, peace, and harmony.
I’ve seen children failing in school become top students.
I’ve seen rebellious teens become respectful and responsible.
I’ve seen over-critical and judgmental parents become nurturing and encouraging.
I’ve seen families which were falling apart become cohesive and united teams.
These positive results and powerful transformations are what fuel my passion to help many more parents like you – every day.
That’s why FUNtastic Parenting is for you.
Please remember that YOU are the special someone who can truly shape and mould your child’s destiny.
If an under-achieving kid like me was able to get respectable results and remarkable achievements, any kid can do that. Or better!
But it requires parents to be the very best parent they know they can be.
After all, you are the best role model for your children. Whether you know it or not, whether you like it or not, your child learns by copying your behaviours and language.
Therefore, during the formative years, when you build a strong foundation in your child’s positive self-esteem, healthy family communications, and loving relationships, you will not only avoid many common problems associated with dealing with teens in later years but you will also enjoy the journey of parenting heartily.
By investing a small amount of time and energy (and money) in learning parenting skills, you will raise confident, successful and happy children.
But only if you APPLY the newly acquired skills to get the results.
In the construction of a building or skyscraper, which part of the structure is the most critical? Foundation. Without a solid and strong foundation to build on, no structure can stand up for very long.
Likewise, in the development of a child to adulthood, the foundation is the most critical developmental process too.
To help you build this “strong foundation” during these formative years, I have put together the ground-breaking, comprehensive FUNtastic© Parenting Program, which has been 12 years in the making.
Absolutely no fluff or filler. Everything you need is in here with no extra padding. The powerful strategies are time-tested and readily actionable.
4 audios and a comprehensive workbook in each module will help you formulate a game plan to start getting results that you desire and deserve.
Over the last 12 years it’s been my absolute pleasure and privilege to work hands-on helping parents with a myriad of issues and problems– coaching, counselling them – I make sure the tools and techniques REALLY WORK!
Desperate Problem Parents Are Faced With: “My girl is shy” “He is not confident” “My daughter doesn’t want to try new things” “My son gives up too easily” “She has no friends to play with”
SOLUTION: Positive Self-Esteem - to help your children develop a strong backbone of self-confidence and self-belief so that they grow to believe in themselves. Without a solid self-esteem, children don’t dare to try or they give up too easily at the first sight of difficulty. Either way, they sell themselves short in life.
Desperate Problem Parents Are Faced With: “He is too lazy” “He plays computer games like there is no tomorrow” “She is always on the computer or her phone” “My son is not motivated to study” “I’ve tried everything, including using rewards (bribing), but nothing works” “I don’t know what to do or how to help them anymore”
SOLUTION: Positive Self-Motivation – to spark self-motivation in your children so that they study out of internal motivation , and not from external pressure. What this means for you is no more need for nagging, coercing or bribing! Let your child take ownership of their results and take charge of their own life.
Desperate Problem Parents Are Faced With: “I don’t have time!” “How can I balance being a Mom and career?” “I get angry so easily. I can’t control myself” “” “How do I deal with my rebellious child?” “I feel like giving up” “I am so stressed; I want to scream!” “I’m a lousy parent”
SOLUTION: High Performing Parents – to help you become more productive and fulfilled so that you can spend more time bonding with your loved ones. Quality time comes from quantity time – if you don’t spend enough time with your children and spouse, how can this relationship be of high quality? Let me teach you how you can better manage not your time but yourself.
Desperate Problem Parents Are Faced With: “My son is failing in school” “She is not doing well, but I believe she has the potential to do better” “He cannot focus” “She gets nervous and blanks out on exams” “I’m like a chauffeur, and I’m tired of driving them to so many tuition programs” “She studies so hard, yet her results doesn’t show”
SOLUTION: Beyond Academic Excellence – as your child cannot feel good about themselves if they are not doing well in school, it is crucial to make sure they perform well in school. The powerful techniques in studying smart, setting goals, boosting concentration, and exam preparation will save your child from failures and you from headaches and heartaches.
Desperate Problem Parents Are Faced With: “I don’t understand my teen” “The only thing they say to me is ‘Hi and Bye’ ” “We don’t really talk” “They spend more time messaging with their friends than with me” “My teen doesn’t share things with me” “I don’t know how to talk to them”
SOLUTION: Healthy Communication – to help you understand and communicate with your children in a nurturing, open, and respectful fashion. Without communication, there is no relationship! Here, you will learn how to communicate with your child deeper than words and continue the meaningful and open channel of sharing into their young adulthood.
Desperate Problem Parents Are Faced With: Desperate Problem: Desperate Problem: “I am tired of my kid talking back at me” “How do I correct their misbehaviors?” “Why are we arguing all the time?” “Is this what I get after I’ve done so much for them?” “I feel like giving up!” “How can I be a better parent?” “There is no more love between me and my husband”
SOLUTION: Loving Relationships – to help you cultivate lasting relationships with those you care about. I am sure you love your children, but the question is, “Do they feel loved?” You will learn practical strategies to correct misbehaviors without damaging your child’s self-esteem as well as the 5-A Formula for nurturing loving relationships.
Desperate Problem Parents Are Faced With: "I feel something is missing in our relationship” “How can I be more calm and relaxed?” “I feel I am not using my talents to the fullest” “We don’t play together as we used to” “I wish we would laugh more” “How can we be more loving to each other?”
SOLUTION: Happy Family – personally I cannot think of anything that is more important than our family. Therefore, this last component helps you to cultivate a positive attitude and empowering emotions; encourage your children and foster good behaviors; and create a happy and harmonious family – filled with love, laughter and joy!
