|Comment||fantastic, this makes a lot of sense. I was actually thinking the same thing, worried it would become habit. Why don't they cover that in the well-meaning books by experts? Instead they paint a picture of horror where if you do something negative the kid won't ever learn and in just doesn't mesh with real life. This never happened with my older child, thankfully - she sort of just learned over night, lol. Thanks again!|
Answers by Expert:
I can answer questions where practical advice is sought in relation to behaviour issues of 2-10 year olds. I specifically look at the influence of personality in a child's behaviour and tailor advice to suit the individual child and parent. This is useful since not all children are the same. I can suggest techniques for tantrums, child aggression and sibling rivalry and adapting to change.
I am a counsellor and child behaviour consultant based in Sydney, Australia and mum to three boys ages 12,10 and 6. I have been involved in setting up and facilitating community support groups for new mothers and run parenting workshops so parents can better understand their children's behaviour. I have spent alot of time observing personality differences in children and understanding how these differences can be used to make parenting easier. I developed the Early Childhood Personality Rating Scale for identifying child personality types in children as young as two. I am the founder of Parent with Potential and developed the Prechooler Personality Kit and READ personality system for primary aged children.
