At the #corporateparenting #workshop that I conducted yesterday
I spoke on how to ensure that our children
WANT to do
what WE want them to do.
In my experience of consulting with parents over the past 10 years
I have found that the biggest challenge in parenting is MAKING children do what they NEED to do.
Parents are almost in tears trying to get their children to do basic tasks through the day.
Even tasks like eating, taking a bath and so on.
Parents hate reminding their children.
And children hate being reminded.
And at times there is so much hate in the air that they almost begin to imagine that they hate each other.
Is there a way out of this?
Yes there is.
And I spoke on that in my workshop.
Depending on the age of your child and what they need to do at a particular age - you need to parent in a way that your child wants to do what they need to do.
And the good news is - that it is not at all difficult.
It was a wonderful session - with lots of interaction.
And I was thrilled with the amazing feedback.
So grateful for these opportunities to make parenting fun for so many parents.
