Ran across a beautiful quote from Maya Angelou tonight that made me smile.
"The desire to reach for the stars is ambitious. The desire to reach hearts is wise." ~ Maya Angelou
It reminded me how a lot of the work we do in a Redirecting Children's Behavior Class is based around the heart. Many lessons and examples we role-play in class show you the difference between approaching your child expecting results or change, vs. approaching your child with the intention of helping them solve a problem. Positive Parenting encourages parents to approach any situation with curiosity and encouragement FIRST, then eventually move to problem-solving. It's the idea of connecting before correcting...and eventually coaching instead of ever correcting.
Most of us WANT to deeply connect with our kids, but just need support on how to do that...especially during super challenging situations. I guarantee you that a positive parenting class provides that support and gives you tons of ideas on how to get there!
Join me for my next Redirecting Children's Behavior Class starting either Sept. 18th ( Playwerx) or Oct. 8th (Aspirations School of Learning). Hope to see you there!
