Have you ever noticed how ineffective many of some of our parenting techniques are? Have you ever tried to change that?
I did. I tried a lot of quick fixes, but…
Yep, they either fizzled away, or outright bombed on my face.
It’s time now to try the slow and steady track. Try something for 30 days, and make what works stick. Much better than struggling with the same old thing over and over again, right?
Are you with me? Shall we take this on?
Together, we focus on one simple aspect of personal/parenting excellence each month, and turn it into a habit. Together, we keep each other going.
For our very first habit, let’s focus on something very basic, something that bugs most parents… how do we stop yelling at our kids so much? Through the course of the month, we will try to understand why we get stuck in the cycle of constantly screaming at our kids, how to prevent it and some techniques to calm down.
This page will be a placeholder for all the articles related to this habit as we go through the month. I will publish the first article today with this page, and then update this page every Monday as a new article is published. For any reason, if you cannot play along just yet, bookmark this page so you can come back to it later. The most effective way to ensure that you don’t miss any articles is of course to sign up for the free weekly email notifications.
