Solve Your Child’s Behavioral Problems

Every parent has a different way of parenting their children.  There is no right or wrong way; however, many parents find that they have to tailor their parenting styles depending how their children respond to our guidance.  Every child learns differently, so what may work for one family or child might not work for another.  As a parent with multiple children, you may find yourself frazzled and stressed out because what is working for one child isn’t working on another.

    Stopping by from MBC. The car ride always works for my 13 year old. Our most heartfelt conversations seem to always happen in the car 🙂

    My twelve year old thankfully hasn’t shown signs of shutting us out or keeping from us. He is homeschooled so we don’t deal with everything that school children deal with. Thanks for the ideas I’m sure we will be dealing with changes as he gets older.

    These are good points. And I aim to always have open lines of communication with my son when he gets older. Very different from when I was growing up. I think I did have behavioral problems that still lurks in the corners just because my parents didn’t talk to me and ask how I was. I think it can be solved within the family and not need professional help yet as soon as you build a healthy relationship with your child.

    All good points!
    It is so important to get our kids to open up to truly understand their point of view. Working on a project together is a great idea. That works well with our pack. Talking while we are in the car works well, too, especially for teens.

    My kids are definitely different and they are both stubborn in their own way. Good advice about getting help if you need it.
