Join me as we discuss:
The differences between instruction and deprivation and how one is not good for your family.
How many parents operate their parenting off of a filter, seeing only the negative in their kid. They never stood a chance with us.
How we can learn to see our kids in positive lights.
Parents often have a tendency to focus on everything their kid is doing wrong, and forget or flat out just not notice the things they are doing right.
They will begin to deprive their kids through grounding, loss of privileges, or even by spanking them and forget to instruct them what we want them to do.
When this happens long enough, parents will begin to have a filter on how they see their kid, so that even if their kid is not acting up or acting out, that is all they can see. This is devastating for most kiddos. They feel hurt and betrayed by the one person that is not supposed to do that.
