Child Behavior Problem or Parent Acceptance Problem?

Posted by | Acceptance, Kids, Parents | One Comment

Oh, how I loathe keywords. To me, it’s putting the cart before the horse. In fact, I have a Kindle app that tells you what to write an e-book about based on what people are searching for on Kindle. It’s smart! Find our what people want and give it to them. But it rubs me the wrong way.

What I’ve learned over the last few months is that you’ve got to get people to click on your product or post, and the way to get them to click is to use the keywords they’re searching for. That’s why the title of this post starts with “Child Behavior Problem….” That’s what parents search for, not accceptance, or connection, or how can I change as a parent?  Read More

Why Doesn’t My Child Listen?

Posted by | Acceptance, Behavior, Parents | 2 Comments

Have you had it with your child not listening to you? You’re not alone…this is one of the most common complaints parents have about their children’s behavior.

Grandparents and acceptance

Posted by | Acceptance, Grandparents, Parents | No Comments

This week I received an email from a grandma (I’ll call her Elaine) who read about Raise the Child You’ve Got—Not the One You Want and reached out for help. She is upset by the way her daughter picks on her grandson, and it’s getting worse and worse. She wrote, “I see the frustration and anger in him. He tells me he hates her, and feels like he can never do anything right. He’s a good kid, an honor student and fun, interesting little boy who seems worn out from the belittling” Read More
