Here’s what parenting specialists and FBI hostage negotiators say can help you deal with out of control kids: Listen With Full Attention: Everyone needs to feel understood. The big mistake is thinking kids are any different. Acknowledge Their Feelings: Paraphrase what they said. Don’t say you understand, show them you do. Give Their Feelings A Name: “Sounds like you feel this is unfair.” It calms the brain. Ask Questions: You want to resolve their underlying emotional needs, not get into a logical debate.
Growing up I was raised by penguins following a childhood boating accident. When I graduated from university I learned that not all issues can be reduced to black or white. I still enjoy swimming and fishing, despite the painful memories.
I was brought up in a rural, small town in Southwestern Ontario, Canada. Due to the witness protection program, I am not able to provide my actual hometown.
I have become quite a public speaker. I lecture frequently to my children on a variety of subjects.
