The answer to that infamous question: "what do I do when nothing has worked."
What if grounding, taking stuff away, and whoopin' em just isn't cutting it?
Trey, my kid doesn't like me so my teaching isn't working. What now?
How do you make this work if I'm separated from my ex-spouse?
So many parents are frustrated because they have gone from expert to expert with no major results with their kids. Is all hope lost? Is there nothing we can do? Absolutely false and there is hope!
Today my great friend Jeff Emery is on for his second time to discuss the Parenting Pyramid and how to find, on that spectrum, where our issue occurs. I know sometimes I am afraid to admit that maybe it's me that generating the issues I'm bumping in to, but there is an inherent freedom to that.
But, instead, I hammer on correcting my kiddo. Taking away privileges grounding them, or worse yet: yelling. *gasp But what do we do when we've tried all the things we've been taught, heard about, or even seen on TV with no results?
Jeff walks us through the Parenting Pyramid and potentially unlocks why you've been having such a hard time with your kid:
- Parent/Child Relationship
- Executive Parenting
- Way of Seeing
Jeff's Website - great site Jeff has put together with a blog!
Leadership and Self Deception - one of my personal favorite books by The Arbinger Institute.
The Anatomy of Peace - another personal favorite of mine by Arbinger.
