Parenting: A Comedy of Errors Filled with Good Intentions
No father wakes up in the morning and decides that today he will yell at his children, and no mother enjoys threatening or punishing. We love our children and want to be the best parents possible. Although we feel strongly about being understanding and kind, we often lose our patience and then regret our behavior later.
What happens in the space between our good intentions and reality, and more importantly – what can we do to alter our reactions?
Dr. Matzner-Herooti's clear methods will help you understand yourself better and generate a change in self-awareness that will open up opportunities to connect with your children. It is written for parents with children of all ages and offers practical tools for facing burning questions, such as:
How to handle temper tantrums?
How to resolve sibling rivalry without making them worse?
How to prevent morning routines from becoming morning melt downs?
Do threats and punishments actually work, or do they do more harm than good?
