Day 22 – How I taught my (then) 7 year old to disagree respectfully and stop his backchat

I have done a lot of mental work with my now 12 year old son Ryan and in my earlier days at the PSC, if you were around back then, you would have heard me mention Ryan A LOT, hehehe.

Well, I’m happy to say that his mindset is in such a better place, to the point where he can now call ME on my language or thinking, which I love….well most of the time.

Today I want to share with you a specific conversation we had surrounding Ryan’s back chat and how differently

I handled it without getting stuck in that reprimanding approach I spoke about yesterday.

This could very well be an approach you could use with your child to overcome their tendency to back chat.

 Let us know what you think about this video below...

Day 30 – How to save our kids from a life of stress, depression and anxiety
As we draw this 30 day project to a close, I want to recap for you the essence of what we need to do, be and act upon as parents, that will provide the very best environment for our kids to grow up in, so they know how to deal with life’s inevitable ups and downs.
Day 29 – Old School results using new school approaches. Here’s how…
Today’s lesson talks about these changes and what it means for how parents approach their child’s behaviour and arm them with the tools they’ll need to adults in THEIR lifetime, not the lifetime we grew up in as kids, which is no longer relevant.
Day 28 – Adolescence is starting at 8 years old. Are you ready?
As our fast paced world evolves and the exposure your child has to life experiences, so too has their brain development. We’re seeing kids move into the adolescence years much sooner than 13 years old. Now, it’s beginning as young as 8 years old! That’s scary, right?
