All parents get their buttons pushed and no one knows how to push better than their children.
Peterborough, NH (PRWEB) April 02, 2013
Bonnie Harris, director of Connective Parenting and author of "When Your Kids Push Your Buttons" will be interviewed by Jacqueline Green of “The Great Parenting Show” on Tuesday April 2, 11:00am PT, 2:00pm ET, 6:00pm GMT. Harris will talk about her work that has helped parents all over the world gain control of their buttons and defuse them allowing them to respond calmly and effectively instead of react angrily and punitively.
The interview can be heard by Phone: 925-948-9530 with conference code 667172# Or on the web: GreatParentingShow.com/live. Or you can listen to a replay.
All parents get their buttons pushed and no one knows how to push better than their children. When buttons get pushed, parents react in ways they regret and know are not effective. They lose control and get into power struggles again and again, expecting their children to be the first ones to admit defeat and back down.
Listen in to learn what parents are actually reacting to (hint: it's not the child!) and what can be done to respond effectively, maintain connection, and gain cooperation from the child. Parents will learn how all best intentions of teaching better behavior get lost in "the gap" and misunderstood by the child causing parent-deafness that drives parents crazy!
On April 16th, “The Great Parenting Show” will sponsor Harris’ first ever Teleseminar of her internationally popular “When Your Kids Push Your Buttons” parent workshop. The workshop will be offered in two Parts, 4 weeks each. Part 1 will run April 16th-May 7th on Tuesdays 10:00am PT, 1:00pm ET, 6:00pm GMT and will run for 90 minutes. To learn about what the program offers and to register, see GreatParentingShow.com/Bonnie.
