7 Secrets To Parenting

Are You Worried That You Haven't Been As Consistent As You Would Want To Be and Your Child/Teen's Behavior Is Getting Out of Hand?

“Become the Type of Parent That Always Knows What You Are Doing, Never Feeling Like a Failure Again.”

 

These days it seems that everyone is an expert at raising kids; Dr.Phil, Supernanny, therapists and coaches. I’m sure that you have done your best, but these tips only worked for a short period of time and then you were back to square one or even worse. Maybe, some of the following has been your experience:

Are you so exhausted, embarrassed and disappointed from the daily power struggles and disrespectful behavior that you dread spending time with your kids?  And to top it off are you worried that if you don’t do something now your child’s behavior is only going to get worse?  Are you sitting on pins and needles waiting for the next phone call from another parent, the school or the police?

Are you ready to turn your child’s behavior around but you just don’t know how to get started or what to do? Or maybe things have been so bad, so chaotic or so out of control for so long that you are scared that it might be too late even though you know deep down that s/he is really a great loving kid?  Or worse, perhaps you feel that you have damaged your child for good and are racked with guilt.

Don’t despair. Read on…

Not too many years ago it was acceptable to spank, yell and use harsh punishment with children. In today’s world this is NOT acceptable and in some cases against the law. We also know that corporal punishment and belittling is damaging to children. As a result many parents feel that their hands are tied and that they have been stripped of their parenting powers.

And maybe you think that you will have to live with this intense problem and sadness until your child grows up and moves out.

Well, I have news for you. Not only do you not have to continue living this way, but I am about to show you how to take back your power and lead your child to a successful future.

Meet Karen and her girls!

Karen worked with Susan for 11 months in one on one parent coaching. In addition Karen participated in 2 group coaching programs; The 7 Secrets to Powerful Parenting (8 week program in 2008 and she is currently a member of the The Powerful Parents Family Leadership Training Program.

"The reason I contacted you was because my life felt so out of control, from the kids to daily chores. I was depressed on top of all of that becasue of the death of my husband. I didn't know where my life was supposed to go after that and how was I suppsed to raise 2 daughters alone! But after talking to you on a weekly basis you helped build my confidence in my parenting skills and gave me lots of new and better ways to parent.

The major problem with Jordin was the back talk and disrespect toward Jenna. After staying calm and being a "robot" it helped so much with her. She still has her moments but they are no where near what they used to be. Jenna's biggest thing was telling me no and throwing temper tantrums. 1-2-3 and time out helped the most with her. Also the cards we made to help her learn how to clean her room was a HUGE skill that you taught me and her. As for me, you gave me the support i needed to go back to school. I now have more confidence in what I can do as a person and a parent. Thank You so much for everything you have done for me and my family!"
