Your goal is to show your kids that you are part of a reliable, strong and functional parenting team. When you achieve this goal, you accomplish a crucial and possibly life-saving step.
Whether you and your spouse are raising your kids(s) in the same home, or you are co-parenting and live apart, you have to agree on some compatible values.
If you think such agreement is impossible, allow me to suggest at least five concepts you and even your ex’s current spouse can agree on.
I’d like to offer some practical parenting solutions that will help you be heard and not just feel heard.
First of all, what your kids don’t realize is that your were a kid once.
Following directions, respecting the rules and following through with their responsibilities are your basic wishes when it comes to defining “compliance” for your kids.
Every day your kids face choices: to behave or misbehave (and to comply or be non-compliant). If your kids are busy making good choices each day, then they won’t have time to make poor choices!
Dr. Shirin Sherkat Psy.D. will guide you in your efforts to avoid power struggles with your kids as she gives you strategies that will help:
Reduce talking back
Motivate your kids
Result in order in your home
Increase enjoyment in your family
As a parent strategist, my aim is to help parents, who are ready to set aside power struggles with kids who are driving them crazy, learn simple and effective ways to make family life a whole lot better.
I want to help parents who are tired of meltdowns, tantrums and kid who defy, ignore, fail to cooperate or follow through on their commitments
Getting your kid to talk to you about a problem can be challenging, especially if they are being bullied.
You feel frustrated that your kid won’t share what’s going on and you can’t help him/her with the problem. You may even fear for his/her safety.
What is an effective way to encourage your kid to talk about problems?
As a Parent Strategist I realize that all kids are not created the same, and all parents are not created the same. Each one has their own individual challenges in the “family” scenario.
It is my mission to honor children and empower parents
