Does Your Stubborn Child Respect What You Say?
If "no"... you're not alone!
Parenting a child with a "big personality" (AKA strong-willed child) is not for wimps! It can cause the most loving parent to "lose their poop" 💩!
Feeling out of control with a rude child, or "spirited child" who pushes ALL your buttons? It can be humbling... even 😳 embarrassing (especially when in public, or at your in-laws)!
Got an angry child who...
✔️ RARELY takes "no" for an answer?
✔️ Questions E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G?
✔️ NEEDS "herculean convincing" to do the simplest chore?
You may find, like I did, that despite your best positive parenting efforts your strong-willed child drives you crazy! 🤪 Perhaps, you feel heaps of mom guilt, or even like a bad mom.
"A Dessert Plate Went Flying Past My Head..."
26 years ago, I struggled with 2 stubborn kids. Their SUPERPOWER? Finding ALL my child discipline loopholes! When a 🍰 dessert plate went flying past my head... I knew something had to change!
I got help from two peaceful parenting experts (along with a master's in counselling).
Their support made a BIG difference.
Other parents noticed our turn around... asked ME for advice. I was interviewed in Today's Parent and spoke with over 1 million parents.
Parenting a strong-willed kid IS hard!
It's why I created the Peaceful Parenting Path™, a customizable 9-step "family reboot system." It helps my clients and I raise respectful kids, WITHOUT yelling, nagging, or caving in.
The Peaceful Parenting Path stops exhausting arguments and makes bedtimes easy-peasy... so you can enjoy more laughter and fun! 🤣
"Why Can't I Get My Stubborn Child to Listen?"
Ever see a parent ask their child to do something… and they just do?! 😵 No argument, no question... no defiant child eye roll?
Anyone who tries to get a stubborn child to listen will find it IMPOSSIBLE! Think of that spirited child (one of my clients calls theirs "Attila the Hun!") who jumps higher on the bed after you've asked them to stop. 🛑
What I REALLY need to say is getting a strong-willed child to listen IS impossible IF...
✔️ You take advice from one who’s never dealt with a bonafide stubborn kid.
✔️ You’re resigned to struggle and “figure it out” solo, instead of investing in yourself and family.
✔️ You use inconsistent parenting because you don’t have a proven peaceful parenting plan.
"The extremes have diminished on everyone’s part...The sense of calm in our family has improved our lives substantially. It makes a big difference to go into every day feeling it’s a good day..."
"“Bedtimes have gone from gong-show to a breeze!!!! As the primary breadwinner, it’s been a game changer for me. Things are SO MUCH better, I have more time… we are far more rested and happier people.”
"Our family functions at a higher level... Our seven year old is happier with the family. He’s a lot more cooperative. He’s a lot more helpful. He helps set the table every day—no questions asked."
Let's do this...
Be the parent your kids deserve to have!
(No more losing it, dealing with exhausting child tantrums, or caving in... only to feel mom guilt. Just a proven positive parenting plan with simple steps.)
