Simple ways to connect with the kids when they come home from school

Connecting with our children when they come home is probably one of the biggest challenges when we all get together. There’s a lot going on at once. If there’s more than one child then multiple pulls often in different directions. Add to that the need for speed to get somewhere or the overwhelming tiredness it’s all too easy for the family atmosphere go south!

In this podcast I’m sharing 8 tried and tested connection activities. You’ll find something to try and do. Reminders of things you used to do and a challenge perhaps.

Steps to Uniting your house when you Disagree and teaching the family how to Disagree Appropriately

by on August 21, 2015

Uniting a family through disagreement. For families when the chiildren have a good point but their delivery, sarcasm, anger and frustration comes up first. Steps to learning how to disagree appropriately ( then we're all happier)

 

 

Remember that time when you just knew you were right and you were little.

How do you disagree with your parents appropriately ?

During the heat of the moment the subject of the argument gets lost and as a parent we focus on the sass, anger, rudeness and sarcasm. But don’t you remember that sometimes you knew you were right, if only you knew how to disagree appropriately so your point was heard perhaps we’d have a discussion and I might be right or wrong but we had a discussion.

Today’s guest, Nicholeen Peck talks about how to effectively disagree appropriate in families so that everyone is heard, not that the children rule the family.  She is the author of Parenting a House United Changing Children’s Hearts and Behavior by teaching self government.

Nicholeen is the mother of four and previous foster parent of many difficult and troubled teens. The Peck family’s success with these difficult children was based upon calmness, the principles of self-government, and good communication. She has been teaching people around the world the principles of Self-Government since 1999.  

Plus some summertime conversation about what type of activities we did and how we got on.

Which Life Skills for my kids?

Conversation about choosing Basic Life skills for kids.  Summer is a good time to start habits, practice and focus on what's needed in our family

 

Summer is  a great time of year to focus on some of the life skills we’ve skipped over during the year. No matter what the age of the children there’s probably been something they didn’t do this year ALL because we didn’t think they had the skills yet.

During the show I’m sharing 12 life skills to revise with children especially as the last time you had these conversations the kids were younger or you’ve moved house.

Contributions and what it means.

If you’re looking to ways to have a slow and deliberate summer of rhythm then create your summer rhythm.

One fun way of trying summer activities is to write a summer bucket list.

It’s not about completing the list, although wouldn’t that be great. It’s about setting habits and equiping our children for the future.

As much as I would like to say we’ve done everything. We haven’t.

I hope that these life skill start you thinking about the life skills for your children and you write your list.

I’d love to see what you would add in the comments below.
