Mom was ready to “lose it” with her 7 year old son. He wasn’t getting dressed for school and kept ignoring her. She was about to “get the spoon” (a threat that had worked in the past). Instead, mom took a deep breath, counted to 10 and then gave him a choice, “You can either get dressed or go to school in your Pajama’s”, and she left the room. A few minutes later he came out all dressed and ready for school. Way to avoid a battle mom!!

Do you need better attendance at your parent education programs? I split my time between So. California and Louisville, KY. If you are interested in parenting classes & workshops in a 3 hour radius of either, there are no travel fees. Please contact me for topics & rates. I love to travel & have an 8-week proposal for parenting workshops, intensive classes & instructor training in your area of the world. Please email me for details.
