10 Ways to Stop Defiance & Disrespect
Nothing is more frustrating and embarrassing than a child being defiant or melting down in public. Have a little one who looks right through you and says, “No!”? Have a teenager who defies you or rolls his eyes? Have a child who refuses to go places? Kirk will show you how to stop a meltdown in public without losing it yourself! You will learn how to turn emotional power struggles into opportunities to build trust and teach self-discipline. You will be blown away by how practical these strategies are.
Discipline that Works: Get Kids to Listen
Instead of being drawn into power struggles, yelling and giving meaningless consequences, Kirk will show you 10 ways to discipline with dignity so kids listen to, respect and trust you. Stop the whining, complaining and tantrums. Get kids to listen when they are loud in the car or interrupt on the phone. Teach kids to control their own behavior (self-discipline) so you don’t have to “make them” behave.
Stop Sibling Fights & Marriage Tension
It is NOT your job to be the sheriff and break up every sibling squabble. Your children must learn how to resolve conflict on their own. We will show you practical, stress-free strategies that work when: Your kids bicker endlessly back and forth. Children hit, scream, bite or annoy siblings. One child drains all your energy and time. Your kids whine, “That’s not fair” and “He’s looking at me!” You want your kids off their video games without being asked (or pleading, “Hold on, I just need to save it, I just need to get to the next level!”).
