Parenting Skills for Stressed Parents
Have you tried everything? Are the parenting skills in all the books you've read not working for your family? Most parenting books are directed towards the average child. But, what if your child is just a bit ... different? You need a new set of skills.
- Want to protect your child's safety, but they impulsively run off in public places
- Provide redirection, which only results in meltdowns or outbursts
- Feel embarrassed about your child's behavior or guilty about your response
- Wish things could be easier at home and public places
This group will teach you new tools and strategies create the peace and connection you crave.
Parenting struggles you may be experiencing
Are any of these behaviors creating challenges for your family?
- Kicking, biting, scratching, punching or throwing things
- Impulsive behaviors such as running off or not listening
- Aggressive behaviors, arguing or talking back
- Tantrums, meltdowns, or emotional outbursts
- Constantly seeking attention, whether positive or negative
- Power struggles or defiance
Sometimes kids are just more challenging than others whether due to temperament, greater sensitivity to physical or emotional input, mental health factors such as anxiety, ADHD or autism, or other reasons.
The truth is, your child is not acting that way on purpose. They are having a hard time. When you can tune into their unique triggers and needs ahead of time and have new skills on effective ways to respond, you can learn how to prevent these unwanted behaviors or at least minimize their intensity.
