Connection, Empathy And Respect. Parenting The “Challenging” Child by The Twin Coach
~:: The Twin Coach ::~
Perhaps one of the most difficult parts for me about raising more than one child has been learning how to parent children with two drastically different temperaments. Our daughter is one of those kids who has been described as willful, bossy, rigid, oppositional, and more. For parents with children like this, the sense of overwhelm can be incapacitating and the comments from outsiders that you must not be disciplining your child enough can be disheartening. I felt as though I had tried everything to help her and couldn’t understand why the connection-based parenting I practiced with such success for our son didn’t have the same outcome with our daughter. I realized I had to dig a little deeper.
