“When I learned how to connect with my daughter emotionally, I was surprised at the huge difference it made in our relationship.”
—Don, father of a twelve-year-old with ODD
Sometimes a child’s challenges can be quite frustrating. It might be better to look at those challenges as a puzzle. What pieces are missing? What changes need to take place?
This step can help parents focus on where the child needs to grow—not just what’s wrong. This first step can turn the thinking into a much more positive focus resulting in a more nurturing approach.
Children develop patterns of behavior and those patterns can change. Knowing how to bring about that change is what this brochure is all about. It’s all about strategy. Parents who don’t have a strategy tend to react to problems, and that usually means angry episodes on the part of parents AND kids.
We want to share with you a different way to think, give you tools to increase your toolbox, and show you what it looks like to reach deep into a child’s heart to bring about lasting change. Each page in this brochure is a teaching tool, with information you’ll want to capture for your home.
