"The cards offer practical advice on handling the tantrums, setbacks and frustrations that confound youngsters and adolescents... (they) have won praise from parents and from colleagues. "
Hi. I'm a child psychologist, parent/teacher trainer, and father of two wonderful sons, Jeremy and Jesse. I've been working in the mental health field since 1980, married to Caryn, my best friend, confidante, and capable colleague since 1986, parenting since 1989, and listening and learning from kids for as long as I can remember.
I created Parent Coaching Cards with help from many kids dealing with problems at home, school, and with friends. Being teased, overreacting, not cooperating, blaming others, and being inflexible, often contributed to the tough times they faced. They didn't want long lectures from parents, they wanted simple and sensible ways to make things better. Parents told me they wanted practical parenting tools that would appeal to kids. Teachers said they wanted a kid-friendly system to solve behavior problems at school quickly.
If you're a kid, think of Parent Coaching Cards as tools to keep your life running smoothly. If you're a parent, these cards provide a game plan to guide children toward social and emotional success. If you're an educator or other professional, these cards help kids solve real life problems.
The picture below shows the Parent Coaching Package: cards, coloring book, and instruction packet. Please check out the other pages to see and learn more. My hope is that your search for practical answers just got a little easier.
