Raising children in the 21st century can be very challenging and behavior problems can cause stress for the entire family. I coach parents in methods that enhance the child-parent relationship, increase cooperation, promote the development of self discipline as well as respect for others’ needs, help the family to communicate clearly about feelings, and teach children and teenagers to make responsible choices. My advice is drawn both child development theories and personal experiences in my child-centered playroom where I interact daily with kids that have mixed-up feelings ranging from anxious and withdrawn to angry and oppositional. I need to manage these youngsters in a way that enables them to express their true feelings but allows me to protect the child, myself and my equipment – without threats, bribery or blackmail! My collection of child development and parenting books and/or DVD’s is available to my clients.
