How to Cope With Children
coping with children/teenagers is more the norm then the
exception to the rule. Children / teenagers present us with
challenges all the time. I have found that the most
difficult aspect of the challenge for parents is knowing
what to do in specific situations. Cleaning the house or
fixing a gadget can be easy because we know how to do it.
With parenting, we often donít know how to do it. But,
parenting is a skill. It is a more complex skill, but it is
a skill, and skills can be learned. Thatís what e-
Parent Coach is all about.
e- Parent Coach is
designed to help you cope with your child / teen in a number
of ways. The first way is to teach you a step by step
process that will let you know what you can do in any
specific situation. What you can do is broken down into
steps and specific skills. Each skill is described so you
will be able to learn and apply the skill. You donít need
anyone to tell you what to say in a situation, but you do
need to know the skills you can use to say and do what you
want to in order to be effective. How you use the skill is
unique to you as a parent.
Once you learn the steps and
what skills to use, you will develop more confidence in your
parenting. The second way we will help you cope with your
children / teenagers, is to use specific problem behaviors
to demonstrate the step by step process so you will know
what it looks like in action. Once you know what it looks
like, your specific application will express your own
personality and preferences.
e- Parent Coach
will help you cope, but our
goal is much more. Our goal is for you to thrive in the your
parenting. When you thrive, you will be able to enjoy your
children / teenagers. That is the best gift you can give them.
