Does your child consistently look at the negative? Do their favorite words seem to be 'never' and 'can't'? Discover how to help modify your child's self-destructive thinking habits in the groundbreaking how-to book, Navigating Negativity (Practical Parenting Strategies to Reduce Conflict and Create Calm) by Susan Van Scoyoc. Living with a negative child can be trying at the best of times. At the worst, both the child and the parent may feel that the world as they know it is ending, or they may wish that it would end! When a child develops negative thought patterns and behaviors, they don't feel capable of facing even the smallest of challenges. This added stress evokes extreme reluctance in trying to face any new changes, easily perceived as additional challenges with which they must contend. Discover the beauty of not having to change or 'work on' your child and, instead, change the way you react. This book reveals a goldmine of knowledge and practical advice on how to create a positive family home environment all while learning how to keep the peace and remain happy; even during a crisis.
Create peace and harmony in your home despite your child's negative thinking habits by applying the practical advice found in Navigating Negativity (Practical Parenting Strategies to Reduce Conflict and Create Calm) by Susan Van Scoyoc. Like prickly weeds in a flower garden, a negative child can quickly kill the joy of a celebration, destroy the peace in a household, and ruin a special occasion with a few simple words. I appreciated how the author changes the parent's perception of how best to handle their unruly kid. Learning how to disengage from a fight, or simply not engage at all is a wonderful example of how to react to the distraught negative thinker. I also appreciated her advice on how not to react to a child in the throes of fear and stress. This book is an inspiring godsend! With practical, easy to follow instructions, Navigating Negativity is a must-have for the parent or teacher of a negative thinker.
