October 11, 2016 | Parent Talk: Raising I-Can Kids

We all want to instill a can-do attitude in our children so that they can take on new challenges and learn to believe in their own competency regardless of the situation.

It is through a sense of competence that self-confidence developed.  Children develop confidence, not because we parents consistently tell them how wonderful they are, but through their independent achievements, large and small.  Words of encouragement are important, but words of praise ring empty unless they refer to a specific effort, achievement or ability, particularly if newly acquired or nurtured.

Learn how to instill that all-important sense of confidence and can-do attitude in your children, the sense of “I can!” confidence is developed, regardless of the challenge.

April 5-May 24, 2016 | PEPI: Parenting 5 – 12 Year-Olds

Carol Muleta parenting courses

These are the blossoming middle years of your child’s development.  So many changes and such a wonderful age to parent!

Your child is eager for more independence and he’s proving so much more capable of contributing to the home and family.  Routines can be much more easily managed and followed, responsibilities can be better shared and, really, it can seem a very pleasant and settled time in the household.

However, despite the growing competency and sense of responsibility of your child, your youngster still needs a lot from you.  Your supervision is still required and your guidance still incredibly significant during this stage of development.

Learn how to do your best to bring out the best in your child during these important, and still very formative middle years.
