Parenting is the hardest and most important job you will ever love!
Both very rewarding, and sometimes extremely frustrating, parenting is the most important job you will do! How sad that children are not born with an owner’s manual, though, as each child is unique, and needs to be understood and helped through growing up in a slightly different way. Parents who have more than one child often tell me how surprised they are that their children are so very different. What helps with the first child fails miserably with the second or third child. To make it more difficult, there are so many books on parenting, both by professionals and others, with techniques that often contradict each other, parents too often end up confused and unsure which way to go.
As a parenting specialist, I offer the ability of knowing the different and well researched and effective approaches to parenting. I can help you find the parenting techniques that will help you guide and direct your child or children in a way that will help you and your child or children feel happier and more successful in your daily lives.
Some areas target are:
1) When and how to encourage your child
2) How to set effective limits
3) How to develop and implement family rules that will work and work for everyone
4) How to help your child reach his or her full potential
5) Helping and changing child study habits
6) Re-directing children with aggressive or unkind behavior
7) Utilizing a reward and consequence system that really works!
I have chosen not to write suggestions or techniques in this article as, after 23 years as a parenting specialist, I have found this type of therapy needs to be specialized to each family and their unique circumstances!
