Peaceful parenting is not just for two parenting households it’s also for:
- Single parents
- Blended families
- Same sex parents
- Foster or adoptive parents
- Parents going through seperation or divorce
- Parents of babies through to young adults
- Parents of children with special needs
- Mentors or coaches
|If you fit one of the above… then you are in a nurturing relationship with a young person… and we know you have the desire to help them improve their chances in this world and accelerate their personal growth and potential.|
|Regardless of their physical, mental or emotional capabilities and despite any negative life experiences your children have had… each child has the ability to achieve their own amazing potential and YOU are capable of providing that environment and encouragement for them to do so. All that is required is a willingness to create a relationship that has the Peaceful Parenting characteristics… such as:|
- Being real with them
- Owning your feelings
- Seeing them in a positive light
- Not losing yourself in the face of their behaviour, fear, anger or need for love
- Allowing them to be who they are
- Empathising with them
- Communicating acceptance
- Being sensitive to their emotions
- Freeing them from external positive and negative evaluation (turning this into self evaluation)
- Seeing them as an individual and celebrating that
If you see yourself as being potentially capable of all of the above charateristics… and this program will help you reaching your potential… then you are half way there! YOU have the Potential!
All you need now is the skills for communicating, the willingness to take responsibility for yourself, expanding and developing the above characteristics and a way to release your old emotional hurts (so they don’t get in the way).
The communication skills we found most effective and sustainable are the Parent Education Training (PET) skills, created by founder Dr Thomas Gordon in 1962. These skills rely upon the above characteristics, so they are integrated as part of your learning. (For more details about PET and Dr Thomas Gordon, read this…
The Peaceful Parenting program aims to provide a holistic way of parenting which could dramatically bring about peace and happiness in all of your relationships. If you’re motivated to change right now… find out how…
or read on if you want more great reasons…
The Peaceful Parenting program is not just about skills, it will help you to solve the challenges, even the extremely difficult moments that we all face when we love our children but cannot seem to understand why they (and we) do the things that we do such as…
- won’t listen to you,
- won’t contribute to helping around the house,
- cry continually,
- talk back even though it’s pointless to argue,
- do things that are not good for them (such as self harm, drink, drugs and so forth),
- hit, kick and yell at those they love or hate,
- make choices that seem crazy to any sane observer, and
- say hurtful and mean things,
What about us? I know it’s me and not them…
Having all the parenting skills in the world sometimes doesn’t help us do the right thing when we are feeling hurt or angry… by what we hear or see in our children’s or partners words and what we interpret by their behaviour. We quite often blame others for our negative emotions but in actual fact, we own our emotions, there are no buttons that can be pushed to turn them on or off. If that were the case, then when faced with someone elses anger, wouldn’t you be looking to switch that off as quick as you could?
Time to take Responsibility…
|By taking responsibility for your emotions, you have the power to change the situation, quickly.Teaching children this is essential to raising emotionally intelligent people. Being emotionally intelligent is being self aware and able to reflect on your feelings and what you’ve thought, believed or felt as a result of a negative experience. Having bad days is normal for everyone, it’s how you deal with those bad days… do you take it out on your family or internalise it?|
So what can this Peaceful Parenting program do for you?
Being able to name and safely release your emotions can be hard if you’ve never been taught how to do that and instead have been told that others are to blame. With Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT)… which we will teach you… YOU can learn how to manage your emotions and free yourself from old hurts and painful memories that are getting in the way of you being a peaceful parent.
Many of our reactions today are a result of old, repressed anger and fear that we were not able to deal with at the time and had to bury inside ourselves (only to come out later in similar situations). Feelings that contribute to:
- Feeling like a failure as a parent
- Feeling overwhelmed over the responsibility of parenting
- Feeling vulnerable and exposed by your children’s issues
- Feeling incapable of coping with their anger, fear or anxiety
- Feeling angry and frustrated with your partner’s parenting
- Feeling stressed and isolated because you feel unsupported
By using EFT you can release negative emotions quickly and easily. To understand how EFT works, you can find out here… We will teach you this technique and more in the Peaceful Parenting program!
The best part of learning EFT is that it’s simple, quick, easy to use on you and your children or partner (or anyone). Once you have your family using the techniques and you can effectively apply your parenting skills, I guarantee that peace will prevail in the household.
Lastly, you’ll learn about how your mind works so that you can understand that much of what you do and say… in any emotionally charged moment… is unconscious and automatic!
So just saying affirmations or trying to berrate yourself into reacting differently doesn’t work! You need to be able to reprogram your unconscious… and we’ll show you how.
If you are ready to dramatically bring about peace and happiness in all of your relationships… start your journey to more peaceful parenting today!
