- When your child has selective blindness with Tahra D Sue Goner 16:49
Tahra’s 10 year old daughter has what her mom likes to call “selective blindness”. She can never seem to find the things her mom asks her for. Tahra finds this so frustrating and is hoping for some guidance on the best way to handle this. We talk about how this is part of the bigger issue of helping out as part of the family unit. If you are struggling to get your children to be more active helpers at home, listen along for some strategies to empower and activate your kids.
This week on The Parenting Mentor:
Tools and games to motivate your children to help out at home.
Empowering conversations to activate your child’s sense of responsibility.
Creating opportunities for your child to earn more freedom and independence while developing life skills.
Practicing supportive communication versus blaming to create a sense of teamwork and empathy between you and your child.
“You could say I get that AND there are certain things that I don’t want to try that hard at either because I don’t really care AND I need to anyways. And you need to anyway. Cause you’re part of this family and I can’t do it all myself. And I need you. I need you to help. I need you to step up and I know you’re really capable of it.” – Sue Groner
