There are two types of parents. First, guilty and frustrated ones who lock themselves in the bathroom to cry after yelling at their kids. And, second, those who have learned the skills to solve parenting problems and proudly stand hands akimbo with wind on their hair like the superhero parents they are.
When you thought of having a baby, you never imagined raising little terrorists who don’t listen to a word you say. Right from birth, kids will bite you, spit food on your face, and even pee on you.
While this can also be cute and funny moments that melt your heart like butter, they can also be the cause of misery and agony.
Parenting is, without a doubt, the best thing in the world, but it’s also the most challenging. Without the right tools to navigate the challenges, everything feels like war.
No wonder most parents today are always yelling out of frustration!
In the absence of spanking (which worked magically for us when we were young), most parents have tried threatening, bribing, counting to three, and even grounding their kids. It works for a minute until the said kids come out angrier, dangerously resentful, and behave even worse.
Crying in the bathroom always comes after you unleash epic verbal diarrhea on your kids and then feel like a monster five minutes later. But the good news is, there is a solution, and today we will show you exactly how to recover from being a yeller to a superhero parent. The kind of parent your kids stare into the sunset with and say, “I love you mom or dad’ without anyone forcing the words out of their mouths.
Have you ever felt like you are ready to pack up for utopia and never deal with your kids again?
That’s how most parents feel; at least I know I did. I bumped into several positive parenting resources and read numerous tips about staying calm, taking a break, knowing the triggers, and so forth.
I tried all these, but somehow, I always fell short and found myself exploding like a volcano for the tenth time in a day.
Over time, I found the tools and resources that enabled me to form a Zen environment at home, one where my kids were ready to help around, do their chores without fussing, and I even received those compliments all parents covet from their kids.
Positive Parenting Solutions was finally a resource that understands and effectively addresses my woes. These tools teach you how to stop screaming at your kids, nagging, and using disciplining measures that don’t work. But the best thing about it is that the guilt that drives you to tears will melt like ice on a hot sunny day. In brief, let us consider some of the principles you will learn.
- Body, Mind and Soul Time
In the middle of dealing with temper tantrums, have you ever stopped to wonder what makes your kids behave like little monsters? More often than not, the answer is attention-seeking. Every child wants undivided attention from their parents, and if they don’t get enough of it, they act out.
Unfortunately, between house chores, work, and making sure the family has everything they need, parents don’t have time for one on one time. But, setting aside ten minutes twice a day to sit down with your child and have some mind, soul, and body time is critical to changing your child’s behavior.
One on one time is not for reading a story or watching TV. You should talk, connect, and listen.
- How Your Parent Personality Affects Your Child
Your personality and parenting style affect how your child behaves. For instance, parents who operate from an ego state which gives off superiority and controlling vibes receive power struggles as a result. Children may be tiny, but they don’t like being controlled any more than you do.
On the other hand, if your parenting style is pleasing and comforting, your kids learn to walk all over you and treat you like a rag. By tweaking your parenting style to be more assertive but not superior, structural, but not controlling, you are better placed to gain cooperation from your kids.
- How to Properly Compliment and Encourage Your Kids
If you are struggling with a child who always leaves their clothes on the floor or never finishes their homework on time, you are not alone. A significant number of parents will tell you that their college-going kids still bring laundry home over the weekend. Is it that children can’t be independent and self-reliant?
Rewarding kids for doing their chores, finishing their homework in 30 minutes, and even eating is one of the tactics the 21st-century parent has adopted. While it’s a great incentive to get things done, in the long run, it makes kids feel entitled; and things that were fun to do are now boring chores.
The art of positive parenting teaches that you should encourage your kids to do things from a young age and then compliment them even if it wasn’t well done.
For instance, my kids do the dishes every day since they were very little. Between you and me, I always redo them after they go to bed, but they don’t know that. By encouraging them to do dishes and other chores around the house, I am raising self-reliant human beings who will not be using paper plates in college.
Encouraging your kids makes them feel capable and also know that you are proud of what they do. If you keep criticizing the things they do, the child eventually gives up because they can’t make you happy.
- How to Positively Take Action
Stop Talking and Take Action is perhaps the best nugget in Positive Parenting Solutions. When you tell a child the same thing over and over again, it means they are not hearing you.
In fact, they are either ignoring you or have tuned your voice out.
Once you have calmly warned the child about something and outlined the consequence of doing it, you don’t need to keep repeating yourself. Simply and quietly take action.
For example, if you warned them to stop coloring the wall with crayons, but continue to do it, go over, take the crayons, and put them away. You can expect a fiery throwdown to come after that, which you will ignore and walk away.
The conversation can go something like: “I see you decided you don’t want the privilege of using your crayons. That’s ok. I will keep them for now. I’m sure you will make a better decision next time.”
A study in the Journal of Child Development shows that yelling causes children to have anxiety, stress, and low self-esteem. You don’t feel good yelling at your kids either. By following the nuggets of wisdom outlined in the Positive Parenting Solution course, you can finally become the parent you have always dreamed of. Better yet, you can raise confident, well-adjusted, and independent kids.
As I started to review this program I found three pieces of info that made the decision to move forward with purchasing easier.
- I could sample the program with an hour intro video. This allowed me to feel more comfortable with the presenter, Amy McCready, along with the content.
- There is no risk to you with their 30-Day Money Back Guarantee. No questions asked. So if the process doesn’t end up working for your family you can easily cancel.
- This is not a subscription service. Once you pay for the course, you will have LIFETIME access. I don’t know about you but for me knowing I don’t have to remember to cancel in a year makes this a much easier decision.
I hope you found this post helpful and it helps you find a way forward to a Cloud Free Life with your family.
