Let's Talk About series
A Note to Parents
Please let me help you! We have raised five children and worked with countless others. Believe me, I know what you are going through. For too long we parents have been made to feel that we alone are responsible for our children's successes or failures. This is an overwhelming and unfair burden. It is time for our children to assume some responsibility for their own lives. They can, if we will show them how and then give them a chance to do it.
This is where the Let's Talk About series comes in. It's purpose is—
to help children to become aware of their behaviour;
to give children an understanding of why they do the things they do;
to help children to see why their behaviour may need to be changed;
to tell children exactly what they can do to change their behaviour.
You probably know by now that your child often responds well to information that comes from an outside source. This series will give both you and your child a fresh new approach to working with tired old problems.
Before you know it, you and your child wiill be going in the same direction more of the time. This is because you will both be focusing on the same issues and functioning from the same premises.
Thank you for letting these materials become a part of your lives.
