I'm noticing this trend and
it goes down like this...
You're trying to get out the door.
Your kids aren't getting ready.
You're gonna be late.
you lose it.
Asking turns to...
and before you know it....
at the top of your lungs
from across the room.
And then your children move.
Or maybe not.
Can you relate to this?
There is an interesting phenomenon
going on here called....
Our children can't hear us.
Here's some steps
to be more efficient & effective
in your communication
with your children.
Ready to have your children
jumping out the door in no time?
1. Take 3 deep breaths.
2. Get down at your child’s level.
3. Make eye contact to ensure you have her/his attention.
4. Put a gentle hand on his/her shoulder.
5. Say clearly, assertively, and calmly (positively!)
what it is you are telling/asking.
6. Believe your child will listen to you.
I know you're busy,
but this is worth your time!
Take those extra steps
across the room.
Get down at your child's level.
Calmly and clearly speak to your little one.
Believe your child will listen to you.
And hopefully they do.

Hi friends, I write from the heart to tell my life story, and the story of those in my neighborhood called life. Research shows that our children's emotional & mental health is contingent upon us parents being able to tell our life story, or "coherent narrative." This is my coherent narrative, my life story in the making, with some of what I love in life too. My goal is to share my life in a way that is real, uplifting & positive- sometimes serious, sometimes fun. In my practice, I inspire parents to empowerment through reclaiming our life stories and learning respectful discipline. My work is my offering to our children- our future. Wishing you all a happy family!
