Transforming a struggling child into a successful achiever
If your child's happiness and success in life is not the absence of problems, but in their ability to deal with them, do you know how to make sure they come out the winners?
So here is one of the many video clips from the free EBook bundle, showing this skill in action.
Avoid these techniques!
Here are some of the basic traditional ways of helping children that you should avoid as they don't really work as they undermine children opposed to empower them.
TRADITIONAL HELPING TECHNIQUES
Oh don't worry. This is easy. You'll get it soon.
The child's response: I must be stupid, right? You say it is easy and I still can't do it. And then you deny my feelings and my perception by saying don't worry. But I am worried!
Come on. Try a little harder and you'll get it right.
The child's response: I am trying the best I can and it's still not enough. Your words of "come on" don't offer encouragement: they imply I am falling behind.
Your brother learnt it in a few minutes so it should be quite easy.
The child's response: Thanks for comparing me to others. And what if I don't get it in a few minutes but my brother did. Then I am even more stupid.
You're a big boy now. Come on.
The child's response: I so want to be a big boy but if big boys can get it and I can't, then it means I am still a small boy. And “come on” doesn’t motivate me.
Don't give up. You're a fighter. Fighter's don't give up.
The child's response: I'm not in the army. And I don't really want to be a fighter. Fighters get hurt. But I don't want to disappoint you either. Now I'm even more stuck.
Don't be pathetic. Only losers don't carry on.
The child's response: That's right. Make me feel even worse than I do at the moment. I get you don't love losers, do you?
My parents and teachers used these techniques on me, thinking that I would be inspired to persevere. But in more cases than not I just simply gave up. And as well intentioned as my parents were, it took me a long time to figure out that it wasn't really their fault that they did not know any other skills and techniques that could have supported so much more and caused less damage to my self esteem.
Everyday I ask myself these questions:
how can I make sure my child doesn't just give up when they are stuck without really giving it a really good go?
how can I make sure they don't just throw their life away because I didn't give them a high confidence?
she seems so nervous from the start that she refuses to even try? If she doesn't even try then how will she ever succeed?
Here is your FREE solution on how to solve this while avoiding the guilt, the threats and the long term damage you may be causing without knowing it.
The solution to this problem is one of the TOP 3 skills that I believe ever parent should know but was never taught. And I really want you to know it so you can give your child the best start to their already challenged-full-lives.
Here's the Biggest Mistake Parents Make when trying to support their children.
When we see our children struggling with something, we are afraid that they will give up too early without giving it a good go. So what do we do? We try and make it look easier than it is.
"Oh, it's not that difficult"
"It wont take long now. The hard part is over"
"You're very clever so this shouldn't be too difficult."
But the biggest mistake is that children are wanting us to support them in stepping up to overcome the challenge, instead of trying to make it look easier for them. If we are struggling with easy things, then what does that say about us?
Take this intelligent skill as an example. Your child is struggling to tie their shoelaces and this is the classic standard response.
But that technique actually makes your child look stupid because they are struggling with something that should be easy. Your child is most likely going to give up now.
So try this instead:
Step 1: show respect for their struggle by starting with the words "Sometimes it can be tricky when...."
Step 2: If you now wish to give advice on how better to do it, then start this sentence with "It sometimes helps if..."
