Children are hardwired for survival. However, survival to them means getting what they want. They often do not understand the difference between what they want and what they need. Once you prove your ability to meet their needs in a safe and reliable way they are free to focus their attention on building quality relationships. Meeting their needs in a safe and reliable way means becoming the authority figure.

The interventions presented can be applied to children as young as 1 year old. They are also effective with teens and adult children whom you'd like to repair relationships with. If ever you longed for an easier way to parent The Parenting Treatment Plan is the start you need. The tools are foundational, meaning you can still be you and add your unique flare to parenting.
