Better Ways to Communicate with Your Children Part 2
Dr. Timothy Johanson and Michael Anderson encourage moms and dads to change their perspective about parenting – to stop trying so hard to create “perfect kids,” to lecture less, and to step back and let natural consequences teach their children instead of stepping in to fix things. They describe how warnings/reminders/threats are ineffective, and why our kids need to know the truth about themselves and the world instead of getting false affirmation.
On Day Two, they examine common self-protection strategies (e.g., rage, withdrawal, perfectionism, etc.) and the problem with telling kids to “just do your best.”
