Parenting has become so complicated and difficult for many families so if you are struggling you are not alone. Most of the difficulties come from one or two parenting skills that have eluded most mums and dads. With honourable intentions many families have been caught up in the times of wanting to give their children every opportunity to have what they want.
This isn’t working because in life what we want and what we need can often be conflicting especially in the life of a small child. It's simple really, babies and children need clear guidelines to know what we need them to do so that we can live with them with as little conflict as possible. These guidelines and boundaries help children to know what is expected of them, so that they don't feel out of control so much of the time and its never too late to turn things around.
A family is a small team of people trying to achieve a good life together and for any team, whether it be an organisation, a band, a tribe or a country there needs to be leaders. If this team is to operate successfully, the team leader needs to be respected and in the case of family also loved.
If your child is hitting you and yelling at you then its time to wake up and smell the roses. I’m hoping thats why you are searching for help - because you are ready to be the parent your child needs.
A child’s primary learning comes from watching and observing how we do things not by being allowed to do things when they want to. Having a great team leader encourages the children to come on board, happy to be guided, because they know you know what you are doing. Your children need you to be that leader.
