This is me just a few months ago…
It’s so discouraging to me every time I see my kids resort to hitting or biting and losing control of their emotions and acting out physically. I’m tired of their defiant attitude. I’m tired of their whining. I’m tired of them not listening to me! I’m tired of yelling so much! Seriously, my kids are stressing me out and stressing out my marriage. I want to be a good parent, and I feel like I’m trying everything I know. But nothing I’m doing works. I just want to enjoy my kids again!
Parenting my kids felt like a battle. I’ve been searching for parenting tips and techniques because I want to be a better parent and having 3 little boys (all within 5 years of each other) I feel like I have to have every trick at my disposal.
I want to share with you not a “trick”, but a truth.
The way I was talking to my kids was causing them to do exactly what I didn’t want them to do.
I read all of the tips I could find for free on the internet, but they didn’t help me get my kids to stop hitting, whining, or their general defiant behavior. To be honest it seemed like every “doctor” or “expert” just read the same book and was sharing the same tips re-worded into their own language. It wasn’t until I found this guy named Chris Thompson that I actually started to hear something new. I found his site from some other parents who raved about his audio course, so I went to his website and listened to his free lesson. In that first free lesson he shared some unusual tips that I hadn’t heard before, and I thought what the heck. So the next time I had an opportunity (didn’t have to wait too long) to intervene in a situation with my kids I tried to implement his advice. I didn’t really have any expectations, but I figured what have I got to lose? If it works, then great, if not, then at least I tried. To my surprise, it worked like magic. It was a simple and unusual tip that worked the first time!
It was like magic. I waited for my boys to fight back and then there was nothing. They just listened and obeyed. Click here to visit his website.
I have to admit. At first I was pretty skeptical. I mean, with all of the television shows, articles, forums, books and every other resource that teach you the so called “right way” to deal with outbursts and temper tantrums, I felt like I had already heard it all. But I couldn’t argue with results. Chris’ advice was unusual, and he came from a different background then all the other so called “experts”. But maybe that was just it, he understood how to talk to people. I mean he’s a “Certified Neural Linguistic Programming” expert. I didn’t even know what a Certified NLP expert was, but basically I guess it means he understands how people hear words and process them. So he knows what words to say and how to say them to get people (your kids) to hear you and do what you say.
Talking to my kids is different now. I think I used to try to control them with my authority. Expect them to obey me because, well because that’s what I said! I also don’t think that it was really my fault that I didn’t know how to talk to my kids effectively. I mean nobody taught me. My parents (who were great parents) just did what their parents did, and I was just doing what my parents did. I have a college education and nothing there taught me how to handle my kids either. It’s not our fault we don’t know what we’re doing. I just needed to understand how to talk to my kids.
Also, just to be clear, this isn’t some sort of hypnosis or mind manipulation on our kids. And it’s not controlling them. In reality, I think I was trying to brainwash my kids more BEFORE I listened to Chris’ advice simply by trying to force them to obey me on command. The tips Chris shares are actually a more loving and respectful way to communicate then how I was doing it before.
So anyways, after that first free lesson I was pretty much sold. My wife and I listened to the whole audio course together and now I feel like I kinda know what I’m doing. Nobody else is teaching what Chris is teaching. I think it’s because nobody else comes from an educational background like him. I mean if you think about it, all the other “experts” basically come from the same school of thought. So really, Chris’ course is the only place you’re going to get this information.
My kids are enjoyable again. They’re more obedient, more fun to be around, and less prone to outbursts. And it’s not a matter of having to get louder to get their attention anymore. So for that I’m thankful to Chris, and my kids are thankful too I’m sure.
