FREE: 3 Steps to Solve Any Parenting Problem

The scenario: another child tries to take a toy from your child and even hits your child in the scuffle.


How to handle it:

Approach calmly and attend to the hurt child.

Sportscast each child’s point of view.

Offer solutions and alternatives.

Help the children find a solution that works for both of them.


Key Takeaways:

Help your child through the communication. If she is too upset about what happened she may not be able to give a turn or ask to have a turn after the other child is done. You can help ask for your child so she can see you modeling the communication she will need to use.


Too often we expect kids to do things they aren’t ready to do.  For example we expect our child to give the toy to the other child for a turn.  If they do that they will feel as though they lost. Help by giving the toy for your child and using the language to ask for another turn.


Remember your obligation is to your child and your values. It can be difficult when there are other children and parents and therefore an audience but remember your obligation is always to your child, not to what anyone thinks of your parenting.


It’s ok that 2 kids want the toy or are having an argument. We can solve this problem together.


Is it normally your child causing the playground argument? If so checkout the peaceful parenting approach to stopping your child from hitting here

Now look, we’re all tired of the over-inflated results that course creators are flaunting on the interwebs. We’re all suspicious of online courses actually delivering on all their bloated promises. So if you think, “Bah, just another expensive course I don’t need” - I feel you, I do. I take the same wary approach when buying new programs. ⁣

But that’s why I want to share real human beings from all walks of life who have actually been through this course and received meaningful and priceless renewals in their relationships. ⁣

Like Chelsea, who remarked: “When I joined Parent in Love, I was ready to give up on my marriage. Today, my marriage has had a complete overhaul! It's practically a different marriage altogether.”⁣

Or Tanya, who reported: "This course has ABSOLUTELY TRANSFORMED our marriage, our family life, and my own personal growth journey! We still fight, but the fights are fewer and we tend to make up quicker and in front of the kids now!"⁣

And here's what Jonna said: "I have tools that give me hope and I know how to start resolving our conflicts. I have started to notice how my own shift of thoughts changes the whole atmosphere in our home, not only between me and my hubby but with the kids also."⁣

Ever find yourself waiting for your partner to change? Sometimes, it feels easier alone. ⁣

As much as you want and need the support - I know sometimes it can just feel easier to run your home on your own. ⁣

No one criticizing. ⁣
No one judging. ⁣
No one commenting. ⁣
No one watching. ⁣
No one adding to your to-do list with their needs.⁣
No one irritating you.⁣

Ah. Bliss. ⁣

But did you ever have these thoughts only to then think: "Yikes! That's not really what I want, is it? What's wrong with me? What's wrong with us!?"⁣

And what has waiting for your partner to change gotten you so far? ⁣

Stop waiting... ⁣

You deserve to have a happy marriage, and your kids deserve to have happy parents. ⁣

And don't wait on your partner, because the Parent In Love program is DESIGNED to be done alone - so that YOU can focus on what YOU can change: yourself.⁣

Your partner will necessarily be affected by the changes you make - because that's how relationships work, we're intertwined like that. ⁣

So TAKE A BREAK trying to change your partner right now, and finally, start to see some real transformation. ⁣

Psst... Your partner doesn't even have to KNOW you're doing the program - not that I'm suggesting you hide this from them, especially if you two are used to discussing financial investments you make - but I DO want you to know that many members have gone through Parent In Love WITHOUT letting their partners know about it. ⁣

And what happened? ⁣

Well, typically their partner would suddenly begin to NOTICE a profound (wonderful!) shift in their relationship and wonder "what's going on?!" ⁣

If you really want to take this program but you're struggling to work through their concerns, especially about the $ investment, I've provided scripts to help you have those important conversations with confidence. ⁣

  1. Hi Avital, just wanted to pop by quickly and thank you for these. Your content often realigns me to the peaceful, collaborative ways of problem solving with my kids that I aspire to. I loved what Dr Laura said: “your obligation is to your child and your values”- right? I know that I feel great when I align to this and feel the ickies when I fail it. You also said something like (parapharsed): you know it could’ve been your kid (sooo with you on that). I think that’s it: we come in a little kinder when we approach all children like this, even if they’re acting ‘against’ our kids.

    1. Thank you Warda! We are so glad you found it helpful!

      I feel like I need to have a big tattoo on my arm that reminds me my obligation is to my child and my values! I too loved Dr. Laura saying that and need to remind myself of it daily! – Tracy xx
