Listen, kids are going to get the better of us sometimes, but you can lessen the frequency and intensity of same by doing the following:        

MEETING THEIR NEEDS, MANAGING THEIR WANTS

Here’s is what children & teens have told me they need AND want, in order of importance:

  • To be heard
  • Unconditional Love
  • Discipline (yes, they WANT discipline)
  • Guidance
  • Fun

I find the order really interesting.  Why not “Unconditional Love” first?  It’s because the biggest problem they have with parents is not feeling heard.  Funny but that’s what parents also complain about with their kids.  

Now that you know what your children need and want from you, it’s much easier to get a plan in place and follow through.  

The biggest problem my clients have is having unrealistic expectations about when results should occur.  You get results once your children trust that you are now a calm leader.  That trust can take 6 days or 6 weeks, or even longer with teenagers.  You just stick to the plan until it works.
