From sibling rivalry to agressive behavior to common childhood issues like whining, transitions or separation anxiety, the advice and insight offered by Patty and her team always leave me feeling as if I better understand what is motivating my children's behavior and what response from me will work best.
I was very excited when Hand in Hand Parenting contacted me a few weeks ago to review their new online course, "No More Hitting!".
The basic premise behind Hand In Hand's approach is centered on everyone's strong, innate desire to love and be loved. That is, when children act out, they are actually asking for closeness, connection and understanding. When parents' behavior goes "off track", they need support and a place to offload the feelings that interfere with their ability to parent well.
|There's help if you feel at a loss as to how to handle |
your child's huge emotions or aggressive tendencies
I reviewed this series of 15 short videos over the past few weeks and came away with so much insight into my 5-year old daughter's difficult behavior patterns. She has never had a hitting issue, but she does have huge emotional outbursts, difficulty handling adversity and we get locked into power struggles often. After taking this course I feel armed with some excellent ideas on how I can change the way I respond when she spins out of control into a tantrum and a greater understanding of what is behind her seemingly irrational behaviors. Most importantly, Hand In Hand Parenting's approach has given me a stronger understanding of my daughter's deep need for connection, especially when she seems to be pushing me away.
- Don't worry if you don't have time for a course. This one is self-paced. You have 6 weeks to watch the 3 hours of video which is broken up into 15-minute long segments.
- Your partner can watch them as well so you can both be on the same page!
