Mom finds Win-Win in Power Struggles With Son
Mom was struggling with the Terrible Twos. Brandon, her son was defiant, getting into everything, hitting and other typical terrible two behaviors. Mom was worn out, tired and feeling very frustrated. From what she was learning in the RCB class, she decided to give Brandon more power around the house by asking him to help her with tasks and giving him responsibilities which he could do “all by himself”. She also began spending much more time playing with him on his level. By the 4th week of class, mom found she had created a much calmer, more rewarding relationship with her son. Mom was also surprised to find her son became much less needy of her constant attention because he felt secure, valuable and loved. Great parenting, Mom!
