We are the only ones we can ultimately control, so by working on ourselves, we can become a loving, calming authority in our homes. As a result, our kids have the best chance of becoming what we want them to be.
ATLANTA, GA (PRWEB) April 12, 2006
We’ve often heard what “4 out 5 doctors recommend,” but what parenting approach do “9 out of 9” pediatricians at a leading Atlanta area pediatrics’ practice recommend? ScreamFree Parenting. ScreamFree Parenting is the exciting new approach to parenting that’s revolutionizing family relationships everywhere, allowing parents to be calm, cool and connected with their kids. And pediatricians love it.
Pediatricians are the first point of contact for parents. They can become the counselor, teacher, even the therapist for parents who are frustrated with the challenges of raising kids today. They are trusted guides, first offering help with issues of feeding and sleeping, and ultimately assisting with more complicated parenting challenges of potty training, behavior issues or discipline.
Yvette Quisling, MD, a pediatrician at Gwinnett Pediatrics, is a mother of three herself, so she can see all sides of the challenges that face parents today. Gwinnett Pediatrics is a top Atlanta area practice with three branches, and serves many thousands of families with care from birth to adulthood. Parents bring their children to the doctor to deal with the typical runny nose, flu, or childhood vaccine requirements, but they often have questions about kids listening, when they should be doing their homework, or how they can quiet them at the grocery store when they get out of hand. Seeing some of this parental anxiety out there is what has driven Dr. Quisling to share the ScreamFree Parenting approach with her patients. “My parents are always looking for resources to assist in their parenting,” said Dr. Quisling. “I finally found a parenting approach that is not only great for kids, but more importantly great for parents.” She continued. “I recommend ScreamFree Parenting to all our families.”
Hal Runkel, LMFT, the founder and creator of ScreamFree, has presented this breakthrough parenting program to standing-room-only crowds of Gwinnet Pediatrics’ Parents. He also presents to schools, churches and companies. The approach is entirely unique, as unlike most parenting programs, it teaches parents to focus more on themselves, and less on their kids. “We’re very excited to be working with pediatricians like Gwinnett Pediatrics,” said Mr. Runkel, a Marriage and Family Therapist who has been sharing ScreamFree Parenting with families for many years, with great success. “As the first principle of ScreamFree Parenting suggests, parenting is not about Kids, it’s about parents,” he continued. “We are the only ones we can ultimately control, so by working on ourselves, we can become a loving, calming authority in our homes. As a result, our kids have the best chance of becoming what we want them to be.”
