Jamaican Mommies by Shanoy Coombs: From Jamaica; for the world
Recently, we spoke about preparing your child for a successful life here and one of our keen readers expressed a certain liking for the article, but said it sounded very much like the ideal situation, in terms of the children being obviously disciplined, hence making their success easier. With that in mind, we did promise another feature on “Turning your Unruly and Indisciplined (Strong-Willed) children into a success stories”, so today we focus on just that.
As good fortune would have it, I have been in touch with Jane Nelsen, author and co-author of the Positive Discipline series. (you can check out all things positive at www.positivediscipline.com) and she has agreed to allow me to use this all too wonderful article on dealing with strong willed children. What this piece does is focuses on the psychological aspects of children being ‘uncooperative, unruly and indisciplined’ and assesses how best to deal with children normally fitted under those categories. The article offers a useful guide for parents to turn around what was once a ‘wayward child’ into one whom is capable of making informed choices which will in turn better their chances for success.
Check out the article here and be sure to let us know what challenges you are having with your children. We’ll be sure to get local feedback as well on how you and your children can overcome these challenges.
