L is for Like, Love and Loving

We often find we can identify what we do not like when it comes to behaviour because it evokes a negative reaction in us. If we focus on what we do not like – that is all we will see, and it is probably what we will experience more of. If we focus on the tiniest thing that is going well, or a positive thing that our child does and praise him for it, e.g. sharing a toy with his sister, or tidying up the lego when you ask him, he is far more likely to do it again, because he wants to hear that praise. He likes that feeling he gets, when he receives positive feedback from you! And so we move from like to love to loving. We can love the most difficult children through seeing the little things that he does well!

L is of like love and loving!

About parentcoachsa

Steph has over 30 year's experience working with families to design child care solutions and supporting parents to be the best parents they can be. In addition she has worked with corporates to find work-life balance solutions for their staff. As a practitioner I have become increasingly aware that work-life balance has become a critical issue, particularly in an age in which the demands of work are often at odds with home and family life. I am passionate about family life, it is the catalyst for every other relationship we have - in every other area of life, we expect to study, get a qualification, try something on appro , we want to feel in control - however it is the one area of life, that none of the above applies - Babies do not arrive with a parenting manual! It is my privilege as a Parent and Life Coach, to partner with you as you take hold of the challenges you are facing in your family, in your life and work with you , supporting you to achieve the decisions and outcomes you are choosing for your family and for your life. It is my job, to keep you on track, to cheer you on, when the "going gets tough". Through coaching, understanding of yourself and your child, and his or her phase of development will enable you to consciously develop a parenting style that will benefit you and your family.
