30 Minute Parenting Tutor

September 4th, 2017 by Gary Crow

Here are the areas covered in the tutorial. They give you a sense of the tips and suggested strategies covered in the podcast. You certainly won’t learn all you need to know about parenting by listening to the tutorial but you will have a good understanding of the scope and important keys. You will also have a good feel for how things are going with you and your child and when you would be well advised to reach out for help.

 

Your Nurturing Family: Your child is special, a unique individual, the only one of him (or her) there will ever be. If you do not embrace this simple truth with reverence and enthusiasm, your child will know and will never completely get over it. …

 

Responding in Moderation: “Nothing in excess – everything in moderation.” This old saying certainly applies to being a parent. The challenge usually has more to do with “How much?” than it does with being correct or incorrect. This dilemma of child rearing is more easily understood than explained. …

 

Rules and Boundaries: During their developing years, your children move from a world with no rules or boundaries set by you into a world of maximum rules and boundaries. They then gradually move back to a world with no parent rules or boundaries. You, in a parallel way, begin by setting no rules or boundaries for your children. You then move to setting maximum rules and boundaries. Gradually, you then eliminate the rules and boundaries. …

 

Discipline: Discipline has a negative side as it relates to rules, boundaries, and to the life-circle. Somewhat simplistically, this has to do with making your children mind and assuring they avoid unnecessary risks. Discipline also has a positive side. It encourages your children to participate in those activities and experiences that are good for them, even though this Sometimes means insisting. …

 

Expectations for Children: You want your children to become effective, successful adults. Reaching this goal begins with having clear notions about what qualities and characteristics effective and successful adults share. You then encourage them in your children. Alternatively, those qualities and characteristics not found in effective and successful adults should be discouraged. …

 

Development: Your children’s development starts with their physical, doing dimension. It incorporates their physical bodies, their potentials and capacities to do and behave, and most of what is visible in terms of their actions and activities. …

 

The Learning Process: Your children first discover and then experiment with what they have discovered. They then repeat the activity, action, behavior, or experience until they have either mastered it or determined it has no value for them. When your children achieve mastery, their knowledge and skills become conscious: they use the knowledge or skill when it is needed for the sake of something else. …

 

Assessing Your Relationship: How are you and your child getting along with each other? For the following questions, is the answer almost always yes, usually yes, sometimes yes, seldom yes, or almost never yes? …

 

Assessing Your Child’s Adjustment: How is your child getting along? Does he seem to be getting along well or do you see behavior or other problems that concern you? Trust your good judgement and experience. Think about your child and answer “Yes,” or “No,” to these questions. The questions that you answer “No,” focus your attention on the problems and issues needing your attention. (If your child is too young for the question to apply, simply skip that question.) …
