Parent Series – Tip Of The Day- Don’t Require A Behavior You Cannot Model

It happens all too often with us parents, We tell our children how wrong it is for them to yell as we scream it from the top of our lungs. We practice the ‘ Do as I say, not as I do” mentality. The problen with that type of teaching is that it wont hold water at all. Children need to see that we are modeling what we are requiring of them in order to validate it’s importance. If it is not important enough for us to demonstrate in our daily lives then they will question why it is important for them. In all honesty they have every right to think like that.Β 

As we introduce new skills to our children and teach new ways of problem solving, it going to be very important that we are able to show them that we too are holding ourselves accountable in that area. I will be sharing some new parenting tips and skills to teach our kids soon, and it will be important that you be the attitude that you want to be around!

Social Worker- Mental Health, Addictions, and Behavioral health- Leadership Educator-, Juvenile Justice. A variety of coaching. I have a great desire to help others make it through times that I myself have had to navigate. I understand the process, the pain,and the support needed. I, and the rest of my team all have both the formal education to coach others but more importantly we also have the life experience which allows us to relate to all the phases and hurdles that come with recovering from issues like depression, addiction, domestic violence, spiritual confusion, and much more. I feel that the combination of formal training and life experience allows us to meet those we help every point of need- in a real way.
