Objectives:
  • Parents will understand the overwhelming importance of self-esteem in working with kids.
     

  • Parents will understand the reason many traditional parenting tactics fail to bring    positive results.
     

  • Parents will understand that "the ideas in the heads of their children will rule their world," so in order to work effectively with their children's behavior they must use techniques that change how their children think.
     

  • Parents will learn "five simple rules" that will help them work with their children in a way that will allow maximum access to the ideas in their heads.

Key Concepts:
  • Most parents come to a class like this to "fix" their kids… but, hopefully what you will do is to "fix" yourselves. Change your strategies and the way you think and you will most likely change how your children act.
     

  • Any attempt made at changing human performance that does not address self-esteem is destined to failure. A child's self-esteem is really defined by what he/she thinks about their role in the world.
     

  •  Positive changes in self-esteem bring positive changes in performance.

Activity:
  • Parents are to pick one simple behavior exhibited by their children that they would like to change.
     

  • Then, they must pick one of the five rules to bring about change in the chosen behavior and apply the rule for one full week.
     

  • They must be prepared to report observations about what happened to the class next week regarding the success or failure of their efforts.
