*Common Parenting Struggles*
A) Does your child seem “unmotivated” or “lazy”?
Does s/he mop around and procrastinate at homework time? Does s/he say “I don’t know” a lot and give up easily, or approaches new or difficult tasks with relentless hesitation, or explosive tantrums?
B) Dealing with a defiant/angry child whose go-to response is opposition?
Do you feel disrespected, invisible, and losing control? Is every day a tug of war and it leaves you feeling exhausted and demoralized, and wishing that there was a different way to respond and manage.
C) Can parents teach EQ skills at home while promoting sibling harmony? Absolutely!
The importance of EQ and problem-solving skills are widely known. Learn practical steps to cultivate these skills and to foster sibling harmony.
