Wits' End Parenting: Got A Strong-Willed Kid??
We believe that your child wants to work with you and make a positive contribution to their home- and/or school environment – and if they don’t, it’s because they haven’t yet learned how.
And we can teach you to teach them how. Here’s what our clients say happens as a result of working with us:
- Parents yell less
- Kids listen more
- Parents understand why their kids do what they do
- Parents and kids solve problems and make decisions together so that everyone feels heard and everyone gets what they need
- Parents have new tools that can be used long-term, throughout the course of their kids’ development
We’ve worked with spirited kids and their families for over 20 years and we offer a range of family-coaching programs. Give us a call to learn more about how we can help!
[With] years of experience with families, Rebecah Freeling understands what makes “spirited” children tick and how they are different from the “easy” kids.
