Any parent will tell you that all of the things you said you weren’t going to do when you didn’t have kids — you do when you have kids. And besides that? Being a parent is THE hardest job you have ever had. There is no instruction manual. There’s no clear cut answer all of the time. Your boss? Never gives you time off, personal time or a big pat on the back that says “good job”. Regardless of all that though, being a parent really is THE most rewarding thing you will ever do.
Every now and then though, you wish you had that manual just to give you the right answer. Now you can! “Kid Whisperer” Heather Criswell along with the Everyday Genius Institute will give you some great approaches and how to change your thinking when it comes to working with your children in their book How to Raise a Happy Child (and be happy too). Imagine not having to say “no” or the time or not having to give time outs, or hand out rewards just for simple tasks. Sounds amazing to me!
The best part? Because there will be less tension involved in your everyday life, your whole family will benefit and be happier!
So what is a “Kid Whisperer”?
(n.) a person who uses deep repport and communication skills with children to work in harmony, agreement, and cooperation, while honoring and respecting their feelings and their children’s feelings equally.
Honestly? The biggest part of that sentence that jumps out at me is the world respect. I KNOW I need to respect both myself and my children’s feelings more than I currently do. The hard part of that sentence is the world equally.
How To Raise a Happy Child gives you techniques through the book and through videos. Topics include:
- Decide who you are as a parent — successes, goals & desires, responsibilities and happiness.
- Discover the 5 ingredients for parenting success — choosing your energy, honoring your feelings, focusing on what you want to do, honoring your child’s choices and why you should always remind your child they are great.
- Putting your happiness into action
- Feel like a parenting pro with proven scripts. Topics including: sibling fights, bossiness, rewards, sharing, mealtime, sports, bedtime fears, lying, potty training, chores, hurt feelings and so much more!
I always feel like my children take advantage of me. Part of this book that I felt was the most helpful for me is how it focuses on MY energy; in so many situations from bedtime to the meltdowns over a candy bar in the supermarket to making sure my 2 year old makes it to the toilet in time.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
