Intercept your judgments about your children, yourself and the circumstances.
CHAOS TO HARMONY
Remember the special and unique human beings that your child or children are. Remember, too, the special and unique human being that you are.
Dr Nikki Neretin
COMBAT YOUR FEARS
Your children won’t want you to worry and won’t give you important information if they are concerned that you will be overly worried
Dr Nikki Neretin
MANAGE YOUR THOUGHTS
Don’t expect perfection; showing up and continuing to grow and evolve is more than enough
Dr Nikki Neretin
SOME USEFUL TIPS
Stop being defensive and stop complaining about your kids, especially in front of them.
Be silly and don’t take the embarrassment personally,” Nikki Neretin
Special time is an active form of listening in which your child’s play becomes their vehicle for telling you about their life and perceptions.
MANAGE YOUR THOUGHTS & FEELINGS
Circumstance : Always neutral, even if you can’t tell. It has to be able to be proven in a court of law. It isn’t subjective.
Thought : A sentence in your mind created by your brain based on your own experiences and history.
Feeling : A sensation in your body brought on by your thoughts.
Action : The steps you take based on your thoughts and feelings.
Result : What you create in the world.
