It can be so much easier…
“Grasp the subject, the words will follow.”
(Cato the Elder, 234–149 B.C.E.)
Sometimes, when parents first encounter ScreamFree Parenting, they beg us: “Just tell me exactly what I need to say to get my kids to behave!”
Believe me, I totally understand that desire. But we’d be doing those parents and their children a grave disservice if we just gave them an authoritarian assignment, without any foundational instruction. Why?
For one reason, both kids and parents are unique. There is no one-size-fits-all technique out there for any issue. And even if there were, the “right” technique employed for the wrong reason can be just as harmful as anything else.
This is why we’ve created The Pause Platform. It simplifies and amplifies all the ScreamFree Parenting principles, all the while using entertainment and challenges to change our mindset from within.
When parents simply focus on grasping and growing into these principles, they won’t have to try so hard to say and do all the right things. I’ve seen it thousands of times. To these ScreamFree Parents, their kids look less like problems to solve and more like people to love.
And once this happens, just about any words will do.
Peace begins with pause,
