'Little Golden Nuggets'
So many parents I hear say, "I don't want to be like my parents raising my kids. But how do I control them without yelling and smacking?"
18 months to 6 years:
Instead of yelling at
Johnny and Jenny, when they are fighting or being disruptive, call
them over and ask them if their LOVE BOTTLE is empty. Kid's
instantly know what you are talking about. Ask them to come and have a
big hug to fill their LOVE BOTTLE.
Cuddle your child in 'Hook-ups' (foetal
position), on your lap. You will find that most of the time their
response is instantly settled. Their LOVE BOTTLE filling, often
only takes a minute or two and the child then runs off happily to play feeling
safe, loved and with a smile on their face.
So then, how is that you can turn a
screaming, 'lashing-out' child into a happy and settle one so quickly?
Most of the time they just need a little of the right sort of attention and to
be reassured that they are loved and not alone in their world. When this
technique is used regularly, you will find a lasting peace where the whole
family is happy, healthier and communicating better.
We become excited when we know we are having
a baby and in so many cases are unprepared for what is to come. Our
children don't come with instruction sheets and most of the time. We often
don't like to follow the model entirely of our our parents parenting, so what
can we do differently especially when we run into difficulty.
- When it becomes apparent that your child is experiencing difficulty
there can be lengthy delays in obtaining an appointment with a professional
qualified to make an assessment.
- Meanwhile, your child is still having the same problems so, this can be
a good starting point to look at the resources of The Brain Gym Centre of W.A. makes
available in this website.
- Once an assessment has been obtained, depending on the results, and
because we are all unique, there may still not be a clear help or
remediation route for either the Parent or Teaching and Support Staff.
The Brain Gym Centre of W.A’s experience has shown there is no one route to fit
everyone, even within a particular diagnosis.
- That is when the detective work begins – aided again by the growing
range of materials available through this web site.
- Below is a series of suggested Steps to both view the website contents
and consider what would be the most appropriate way to progress. We always
suggest you should talk to your child’s Teacher or Learning Support Teacher
about what you are learning and the approaches you are starting to
use to improve brain function. A concerted course of action benefits
everyone – especially your child.
are the most important people in your child's life.
Tell and show your child daily that you love them.
Believe in them, even if you feel like 'strangling them'.
They are our future and healthy parenting develops healthy
