Are You Sick And Tired Of Fighting With Your Kids? Try These Parent Effectiveness Training Ideas!

Author : Paul Donahue


If you are struggling to be a parent to your children, check out some tips and parent effectiveness training to help straighten things out! You already have so much aggravation with your children, so, you should definitely keep on reading. Without further ado, let's get to it.

First: This is perhaps the most important tip. You must, from this moment, forget about what has already happened up till now. This refers to a few things, so let us further explain.

What you need to do is throw your hands up in the air. This means to admit that you need some help. Your way of parenting was just not working. Right now, it doesn't matter why things weren't working. The only thing to do now is to make this admission, and then move along!

What is also necessary with letting go and this admission is, that you absolutely must not get down on yourself. And perhaps you already are feeling down about this entire scenario. If you are, that is alright, and it is very normal. There is a reason you are here reading this now, and, you have been through a lot.

However, as long as you keep on doing what you can to change things, you will be able to fight off these feelings. Just reading this article should make you feel better, hopefully!

Second: This is probably even more important than the first tip, however, without that tip, you might not make it this far! If your parenting style is harsh, meaning, it is based on a lot of screaming, yelling, and berating your children, you have definitely come to the right place. And it doesn't matter which came first, your children acting out, or your tough tactics. It all has the same effect.

Well, cortisol is something that is a result of this yelling and screaming. Cortisol, which is made by the adrenal glands, gets sent to the brain because the screaming causes fear and stress, which causes extra cortisol to be made. If that weren't bad enough, it causes many more bad things.

Initially,the child will become disoriented and is subject to acting out. If they haven't gotten yelled at yet, they will now. Can you see the horrible cycle here? This is where parent effectiveness training would come in handy. This is not all that cortisol does. It gets so much worse!

Cortisol also causes some problems for down the road. Blood pressure can rise, bone formation tends to be lowered, and memory can be affected as well, which can cause learning disabilities. It also can negatively impact the immune system. If all that wasn't enough, sprinkle in some low self-esteem which usually accompanies the harsh parenting, and the final results usually are teenage delinquency and maybe even sociopathic tendencies.

All this might explain why you've been struggling as a parent, but it leaves us with a void. What to do next! Well, if you don't want things to continue on as they have been, then....
