Social Awareness Helps Kids - When Parents Guide + Video

 

Asian Family SMALLEST
 
Socially Smart Children Enjoy Friendships!

KIDS NEED FRIENDS! Youngsters who boss, brag, gossip, or are shy prevent the friendships that could help them grow. 

Parents can teach children how to make friends by using fun discussions. But teaching isn’t telling. Teaching is getting kids to think by asking thoughtful questions, listening well, and appreciating their good ideas.

This method helps your child know you care, opens them up to sharing their thoughts, and then listening to your good advice.

No criticism! It will shut your child down.

Today’s parenting video includes 6 meaty discussions to help kids see what goes into making friendships. Use one discussion idea a week. This will help them think more deeply about each topic.

Depending on your family schedule, you can have these chats at dinner, in the car, before bedtime, or whenever is good for everyone.

Think about the discussion idea ahead of time and develop your own friendly conversation questions.

Below the video you will see the script. Feel free to copy the discussion ideas and add them to a binder to use whenever you need them. Enjoy the family bond that comes from wholesome chats like these.

Kids Who Complain, Whine and Gripe : 7 Parenting Tips

 

Whining Boy Child SMALL
 
Whining Kids Can Speak Nicely!

If your child whines and complains, he's normal. Many children learn to beg in that shrill voice that grates on a parent's nerves. They use that voice because you're powerful, they're weak, and it works.

But, with your training, he can learn to speak in a pleasant voice. It may take repetition on your part before he remembers how to ask for what he wants. It will take patience too.

Today you'll find a brief slideshow (only 10 slides with few words) that offers 7 ways to help your child overcome the whining and griping habit.

It's worth the effort when you ask yourself, "What have I got to lose?" If you answered, "A whiny shrill unpleasant voice," you're right.

How Parents Raise Loving Families - 7 Tips + Video

Asian Family SMALL


FIND OUT THE EASY WAY TO RAISE A CARING FAMILY!


Sincere words, a smiling voice, and eye contact are 3 ingredients you can easily use to create caring in your child.

Your words, whether harsh or loving, will be replayed over and over throughout his life. Your harsh words can become the critical judge he'll hear in his head when he does his homework, looks for a job, or raises kids of his own. 

If your words are kind and encouraging, they'll become his inner "Head Coach" and give him the confidence and courage to live a happier more productive and caring life.

But what if she's sassing, demanding, or lying? Clearly this is not the time for coddling and kind words. It could be the time to hold your tongue and not give in to the sass and demands. It's not easy.  IT CAN BE DONE!

How Changing Words Changes Family Life

Here’s a brief video with 7 family compliments that include honest words, a kind voice, and specific comments you can use. You’ll also find out how a tiny box, a family dinner, and noticing behaviors can help you raise a caring family.

The Takers: Poem for Kids with Family Discussion

Boy grabbing SMALL
IS YOUR DISRESPECTFUL CHILD A "TAKER?"


If your child appears conceited and arrogant and you are worried about his future, you have good reason to be concerned. Who will treat him with respect when he is disrespectful? Who will love him in spite of his selfishness? Who will work with him if he doesn't listen?

Spoiled kids act as if they are the "King of the Universe." They expect things to go their way. They get what they want because they demand it. They aren't givers. They are takers.

If you are raising takers, read and discuss today's parenting gift with your children. It's a poem entitled 'The Takers.'  You'll find 8 questions to discuss with them. 

Notice that Michael's mother, in the poem, doesn't enforce rules. Is that why she's doing his work for him? Zoe's dad couldn't stand her tantrums in toy stores so he gave in. Is that why she screams to get what she wants? Ask your kids the questions and listen to their opinions. You may be surprised at their wisdom.

Spoiled Zoe SMALL
YOU CAN STOP TEMPER TANTRUMS!

 

Even if your children are givers enjoy the poem and the family discussion. It will be fun to hear how they think.

Brainwashing Kids: How Divorced Parents Show Caring

Angry boy SMALL
"Stop talking against my parent!"


DIRTY DIVORCE TACTICS INCLUDE TELLING YOUR CHILD MEAN THINGS ABOUT HIS OTHER PARENT. It's called "parental alienation." When you're deeply hurt by the divorce
, it's easy to do.

Let's face it, divorce wounds both parents and kids. Many parents want revenge. So they try to turn their children against the other parent. To get their children to love them best, they brainwash their kids to think poorly of the other parent with words like:

"Your father is a liar."

"Your mother doesn't care about you."

"Your dad is lazy."

"Your mom is selfish."

Whatever is said has the power to influence their children. It goes inside their hearts and minds and makes them feel confused, angry, and sad. They may even begin to agree with the complaining parent. Their respect for the complainer turns sour too.

Today we'll share an article with a child's divorce story about feelings and another story about a father's unrealistic demands. You'll find 7 common childhood reactions to a parent's divorce, 10 big mistakes divorced parents make, and 15 ways to avoid brainwashing and show your child love.
