Rather than dread those temper tantrums, embrace them. Consider them an opportunity to practice new skills with confidence and become empowered as you parent. In Parenting with a Purpose, author Diana R. Boggia shows you how to embrace those moments as she presents strategies to remedy misbehavior, increase self-confidence, and empower you as you learn to take control in a positive way, without yelling or harsh punishment.
Culled from her weekly syndicated newspaper parenting column, Family Matters, Boggia's guide paves a path for parents, providing practical, easy-to-apply strategies to eliminate daily chaos and resolve behavioral concerns with ease. She discusses how to retrain your child with positive interventions to eliminate confrontations, de-escalate temper tantrums, soothe your child to sleep, or implement a time-out with success, not anger; teach your child to wait patiently while you are on the phone, to pick up after himself, to develop thoughtful manners, and to develop a strong sibling bond, all accomplished while building independence and self-confidence; communicate so your child can understand exactly what you are asking of him; implement the effectiveness of multisensory communication, which can change the dynamics of your entire family.
Parenting with a Purpose shows you how to incorporate small changes that will make a difference in your child's life and help you to parent with passion and joy. Anyone can be a parent, but it takes a parent armed with skills and continuous dedication to raise a resilient, thoughtful, self-confident child.
