Bristly and Brambly Kids

Raising a child who is challenging, difficult or intense is not easy. Parents need skills that go beyond basic parenting practices. Techniques that work with most children, often will not hold up with kids who are "more"... more "bristly and brambly" (the terms we use to describe the child who may be more defensive, oppositional, temperamental, intense and challenging). It's important to distinguish that we consider these traits, not defects...and while they may be typical ways some kids approach the world and others, it is not their final destiny. Not even close.

These kids aren't "acting up" or intentionally trying to make us miserable. And WE hold the KEY to helping them!

How WE respond to them is EVERYTHING.

What we'll be sharing in our mini webinar is an example of the kind of content
you'll receive if you take the entire class. It's just scratching of the surface 
of what you'll learn in the full 4-week class!

How I Know This To Be True

I know this because I've experienced life with thousands of children who fit the description above, in my office, in the real-world and in my home. When I say I know what it's like to feel the exhaustion, the overwhelm, the real toll that one experiences when faced with unrelenting intensity minute after minute, hour after hour, day after day. I mean I really KNOW. In a visceral, not academic, kind of way. I know it in my gut...I know it on a cellular level.

Having survived kids who are bit (or a lot) more "bristly and brambly", and having gotten to the other side of that...with my sanity, happiness and JOY intact...and having helped thousands of families do the same in my office...all while raising well-adjusted kids who have learned to manage that intensity and channel it in incredibly productive ways, I knew I had to share.

I wasn't sure exactly how that would come about, but I new I had to do it in an organized, helpful way that took what all the psychological, cognitive, emotional, developmental, interpersonal and neurobiological underpinnings that comprise "bristly and brambly" kids and distill it down so that it would be easy to absorb, digest and utilize. Ultimately, everything I learned morphed into The Joyful Parent, which will be making its debut very shortly.

It will be here 10 days from now...and people from not only all over the country, but people from all over the world are signed up.

This tells me a couple of things:

1. Parents everywhere deal with intense kids.

2. You are not alone.

I know this much is true: It's NOT your fault.

In almost every case I've seen, parents have done nothing to cause the intensity their child experiences and demonstrates. Almost every family I ever worked with has been loving and was setting appropriate limits. They were not indulgent or emotionally or physically absent. They weren't coddling or spoiling their kids. Still, the intensity abounded. Still, the days and nights were difficult.

These parents landed in my office wondering what they were doing or not doing that "caused" things to get so out of hand. What could they do that would change it all around. They wanted to know how they could enjoy their kids and stop feeling stressed and exhausted.

I knew there were several things that COULD be changed...I knew that parents could do SOMETHING (actually, lots of things) to help mediate the intensity, help their kids learn to channel it, help them settle their emotional brains way down and get back to JOY!

Enter The Joyful Parent

So, I developed The Joyful Parent to help parents and caregivers understand the reasons behind the behavior and how we can help kids experience more success, less stress and an improved ability to manage BIG feelings. We've been doing it for years in our therapy office...and now, we've combined it with powerful research and neuroscientific facts (some if it so new, I couldn't even have shared it with you five years ago)!

It's suitable if you are raising a child up to the age of 12, but honestly, what I'll be sharing will be applicable to kids/teens of any age...AND...it extends to all human relationships. Truly. The concepts work with anyone of any age!
