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.

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.

Please listen to this brief YouTube Video now,

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.

Sassy Behavior Video: Stop Kid's Sarcasm with 10 Parenting Tips

Sassy Child
Rude Behavior - Don't Accept It!

 

Many children use sassy behavior to get their way. If your child is rude to you and you want to stop it, watch our brief video, Sarcastic Behavior: 10 Positive Parenting Tips. Here’s one of the solutions:

Parenting Tip # 8

Tell your child exactly what to do to replace the sass.

“Repeat what you said but say it with respect.”

 For instance, she could answer:

  1. “I’m sorry for saying, ‘Do it yourself.’ I’ll set the table right now.”
  2. “I'm sorry I rolled my eyes when you told me to do my homework. Next time I’ll ask, ‘May I do my homework after dinner?’”
  3. “I shouldn’t have said, ‘Give me a break,’ when you asked me to carry in the groceries. I’ll get them now.”

Accept your youngster’s apology if you feel it is sincere. Otherwise, let her know that it still sounded rude and to try again.

If your child is younger, role-play the sass and then the better behavior. If she likes to draw, have her draw the sarcastic behavior and then the respectful conduct.

When she uses polite manners, be sure to compliment her. This may increase her politeness and decrease her disrespect.

Parenting Video – 5 Ways to Promote Resilience in Children

 

Boy with thinking finger
You Can Raise a Resilient Thinker!

CHILDREN WHO WHINE, BLAME, AND WALLOW IN SELF-PITY CAN LEARN TO bounce back from difficulties. This brief video offers 5 ways to inspire your child to become resilient.

One of the ways is to avoid telling your child exactly how to do something. Telling undermines his problem solving abilities and makes him dependent on what you think. What’s the better way?

Research tells us to ask “How Questions?” "How Questions" boost thinking power. Some examples include:

1. How would you like to solve it?

2. How many solutions can you come up with?

3. How could you handle it better?

There are as many ways to ask “How Questions” as there are problem solving situations.

To motivate your child and strengthen resilience, watch the video together by clicking on: How Parents Can Raise Resilient Children or watch it here:
