"I’ve found tantrums to be turned around more quickly. Instead of reacting with my downstairs brain and getting mad/punishing with time out, I’ve tried and several times succeeded with empathizing, validating feelings, and redirecting in a calm manner. I’ve focused on getting him calm before trying to explain to him anything that requires the upstairs brain. Thank you Angela for the resources to make this possible!"
"The way I FEEL about her is different. I don't view her as an adversary anymore. And I don't view myself as helpless anymore. I feel like a leader now and I feel like she is just being her own individual and isn't intentionally making my life difficult whereas before I felt like she was being an enemy to me."
"I have really focused on my son's Areas of Temperament and brainstorming the best techniques to deal with his exact combination of characteristics. A lot of it is breaking away from patterns I was raised with. Now when he does have those moments, I find it they are shorter-lived than normal."
It's not talked about often in the 'parenting world' but the truth is... some children are much more challenging to raise.
No amount of professional knowledge or training as a child mental health professional could have prepared me to raise my spirited strong-willed child (at least not in an emotionally healthy way).
After years of pouring over my clinical insights, research on human development/neuropsychology, and resources from thought leaders in the positive discipline field, I started to find confidence raising my strong-willed child, and the close relationship I had longer for.
I’ve taken the life-changing insights I’ve gathered to support thousands of parents raising spirited, emotional and determined kids. It is possible for both you and your child- to thrive- on this unique parenting journey.
