I always get a surge of calls as school begins because parents pull their hair out with stress as some of their children go back to school and have major adjustment problems!!!!!
Much of the problem is too many parents think they can ride by the seat of their pants and that things will somehow go well between you and your child.
As millions of families are busy shopping for school supplies, the truth is every family must make significant adjustments in order to ensure the family atmosphere will not deteriorate due to the radical loss of freedom for your child and dramatic increase in stressors that come along with the demands of school.
These new demands and loss of freedom bring children and their parents into necessary conflict. Here are 4 blogs that have been some of our most popular, that give you very specific step-by-step advice on how you hold Family Meetings and set up sustainable and fair family ground rules that will withhold the storminess you will no doubt experience this school year.
Use these blogs to plan the Family Meeting that you need to hold this Sunday! Trust me, you will thank me if you read even one of these blogs and apply some of the advice.
Given the out-of-control technology use and sense of entitlement children now have, parenting has never been more difficult than it is now. Parents, you need to have an even more pre-planned structure than any generation of parents have ever needed.
