Does your child have a low
Does almost all communication end in a quarrel?
Don't you get your child to cooperate?
Won't your child talk to you?
Doesn't your child listen to you?
Your son comes home upset, and says:
"You know what? Just because I spoke to James during class, I had to stay behind after school!
The teacher is so stupid!"
How do we respond?
How do we get them to cooperate?

teacher and pioneer within communication with children
“What is the goal of parenting? It's to help a child grow up to be a decent human being, a mensch, a person with compassion, commitment, and caring.”
“It is a deep comfort to children to discover that their feelings are a normal part of the human experience. There is no better way to convey that than to understand them.
“Like a trained surgeon who is careful where he cuts, parents, too, need to become skilled in the use of words. Because words are like knives. They can inflict, if not physical, many painful emotional wounds.”
“The rule is that when we know the answer, we do not ask the question.”
“If you want your children to improve, let them overhear the nice things you say about them to others.”
“Empathy, a parent's ability to understand what a child is feeling, is an important and valuable ingredient of child rearing.”
“Rewards are most helpful and more enjoyable when they are unannounced in advance, when they come as a surprise, when they represent recognition and appreciation.
“While parents possess the original key to their offspring's experience, teachers have a spare key. They, too, can open or close the minds and hearts of children.”
“If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming.”
I would like to hear from you!
