Many of the parents that I speak with often feel guilty when faced with a child with behavioural issues and they yell at their kids. At times, being patient and not losing it is easier said than done and we’ve all been there.

Of course it leaves you with feelings of guilt and regret when you see the effect that it has on your little one and you’re often left thinking, there’s got to be a better way for me to handle this next time! Unfortunately with the stresses of modern life and with next time often occurring too soon, you do exactly the same thing and so it continues…

Meanwhile your little one is learning new ways in life to get you flustered and annoyed and on and on it goes.

In this episode I am talking with Debbie Godfrey who knows her stuff when it comes to parenting education. She’s been doing it for over 30 years and through her business, Positive Parenting, she’s served schools, community centers and organisations throughout the world.

You’ll hear Debbie and I talk all about positive parenting solutions and how you can implement them and you’ll hear some great examples of how to discipline your children in a positive way that doesn’t damage their self-esteem.
