You’ve tried time-outs. You’ve tried rewards. You’ve tried consequences. Nothing seems to work.
Your kids won’t listen to anything you say, until maybe you start really yelling at them, and then you feel angry or guilty for the rest of the day anyway.
You wonder if there isn’t some way to get things a little more under control. A little more compliance, a little less fighting, a little less attitude.
There’s no question that parenting is tough, and at times very frustrating.
We can help you figure this all out.
There’s no magic answer for how to get kids to listen. But there is help.
We can coach you to be the parent you really want to be. It doesn’t mean your kids will never fight or throw tantrums or talk back. But it does mean there will be a lot less of those behaviors, and a lot more time for loving your kids and enjoying your life with them.
Imagine feeling a sense of control and knowing what you can do even when the kids are falling apart.
Imagine a house filled with the sound of kids playing happily instead of crying and screaming.
We’ll help you get there. Contact us today to find out how.
