Parenting Tips - Caring Kids Learn Charismatic Skills

Sad and Lonely Boy SMALL
 
Parents Can Teach Kids Social Skills

CHILDREN  WITH SOCIAL SKILLS AND CHARISMA AREN'T BORN THAT WAY. To be charismatic takes charm and you can teach it.

We're not talking about popularity, manipulation, or vanity. We're talking about the true inner charm that cares about others. It will help them grow socially too.

If you model charm to your children, they can learn it from you. There are 3 things all people want that come under the Umbrella of Attention. Give those to others and you'll have charisma.

Use Sincere Eyes, Smiles, and Words with:

  1. Approval by looking for the good in your children and telling them what you see.
  2. Appreciation for the good things they do. "Thank you for..." or "I like the fact that you..."
  3. Affection using a touch, hug, pat on the back, kind word, kiss, or whatever is appropriate.

This is called the Triple A Formula. It is the best way to give what your child and others crave and that is, Attention.

Be a great listener. Hear what your children are saying. See how they're acting. Then try to understand how they're thinking and feeling.

Don't tell. Ask.

"How are you feeling?" Again be a great listener and repeat in your own words what they said. Here's why:

Charismatic listeners help others feel a real connection with them.

You want that with others and, especially, with your children.

Use these 3 tips, Approval, Appreciation, and Affection, as you ask your children the 6 parenting discussion topics in the following YouTube video. They will help your children develop the social skills they need to become the charismatic leaders of tomorrow.

7 Family Discussion Questions Boost Kids' Self-Image

Family Reading SMALL
FUN DISCUSSIONS WITH KIDS PROMOTE FAMILY UNITY!

Praise or criticism, which motivates kids to do their best? Too much criticism often makes people bitter not better. Research advises us to give 3-6 compliments for every negative comment because kind remarks help lessen the sting from complaints.

If you must disapprove of your child’s behavior, there are 3 rules:

  1. Do it privately.
  2. Be brief, no lectures.
  3. Suggest a positive behavior or solution.

Goal for Giving Praise

You don’t want your child to live for other people’s approval. A nickname for pure approval seekers is "Love Slob."No one wants to hear their child called a "Love Slob."

Your goal in using praise is to increase your child’s inner motivation which means they do their best because that’s their positive self-image. It’s who they know they are.

Use our gift today which includes the poem, “I Caught You Being Good Today,” by downloading, discussing, and getting your children to answer the 7 discussion questions.

If you do, you’ll find out:

  1. How criticism feels to your children.
  2. Whether they notice each others mistakes more than their good qualities.
  3. What would motivate them the most, criticisms or compliments.
  4. If they’d like to focus on the good in each other more often.
  5. How they’d like to share with each member the good they see.

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.

Verbal Abuse from Spoiled Children - Checklist and Video

Yelling Girls SMALL
ACCEPTING DISRESPECT HURTS EVERYONE

The words your children yell at you reflect how they think and feel about you. If those words are selfish, mean, or hurtful, you've got work to do. Why you? Before your children can change you need to change. I know it's hard to hear. But ask yourself 3 questions about:

Disrespectful Children

How did the disrespect start?

How did I respond?

Why is it continuing?

You can learn a lot of important information by answering those 3 questions.

You work hard all day and come home to even more work - dinner, dishes, laundry, lunches, and homework. You're tired and ask your kids for help. "Don't tell me what to do!" is yelled back at you.

Your tiredness makes you cranky and you yell back. If you end up  feeling like a parenting failure or guilty about the things you say, it's time to change.

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.

Stubborn Child Activity: Character Building Poem with 7 Questions

  Pouting Girl

You Can Help Hardheaded Child to Cooperate!

Getting your strong-willed child to cooperate can be difficult. Often stubborn youngsters react without thinking. Parents feel frustrated, get mad, and both start arguing. Before you know it, the argument becomes nasty and nobody listens. Nobody wins.

Getting solutions to determined behavior is best when children are in a good mood. Today we have an activity that you can easily use. It's a unique children's poem about stubbornness with 7 questions. It will help you and your kids discuss the issue without pointing fingers.

Find out what your children think about Jake and Jill's (the kids in the poem) behavior. The questions will help them reflect about their own behavior. They'll begin to see that acting like a mule closes minds, loses positive power, and increases ugly moods. 

Cooperation is a better solution. It's more fun too.

Pick up this parent/child poetry gift at Subscriber Gifts  Or http://kidsdiscuss.com/subscriber-gifts.asp then insert the code word: SIBS

Start having great discussions about stubborn behavior today!

Parenting Fearful Children: 7 Mistakes and 11 Solutions

Worried boy
"Please Don't Make Me!"


IS YOUR CHILD OVERWHELMED WITH WORRY AND FEAR? If so, you can help him turn anxiety into confidence. Today I will list 7 mistakes you don't want to make, 3 worrisome situations for anxious children, and 11 easy steps for helping your over-sensitive child.

Anxious children know the awful experience of thoughts and feelings running wild. For them, it's like a tsunami. They try to avoid such danger at all cost.

That's why they worry and fret about the worst things that might happen. They might cry, throw temper tantrums, and refuse to take risks. This is how their worry protects them from harm. It stops them from trying, making mistakes, and being embarrassed. It keeps them safe from failing and feeling foolish.

Black boy

     "I can't. I might fail"

But kids don't realize that anxiety also imprisons them with their negative thoughts and fearful feelings. It prevents them from experiencing the joys of accomplishment.

Find out what you can do. Practice the 11 simple steps to help your child overcome childhood anxieties.

11 Ways Parents Turn Anxious Kids into Confident Children
