Parenting Your Strong-Willed Child

Parenting Your Strong-Willed Child
Have a strong-willed child? You're lucky! Strong willed children can be a challenge when they’re young, but if sensitively parented, they become terrific teens and young adults. Self-motivated and inner-directed, they go after what they want and are almost impervious to peer pressure. As long as parents resist the impulse to "break their will," strong-willed kids often become leaders. What exactly is a strong-willed child? Often, strong-willed kids are prone to power-struggles with their parents. No one likes being told what to do, but strong-willed kids find it unbearable. Strong-willed kids aren't just being difficult. Morality is doing what's right, no matter what you're told. So of course you want your child to do what you say. Breaking a child's will leaves him open to the influence of others who often will not serve his highest interests. That said, strong-willed kids can be a handful -- high energy, challenging, persistent. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11.

Twenty-six years ago, having nothing better to do at the time, I tried my hand at schoolteaching. The license I hold certifies that I am an instructor of English language and English literature, but that isn't what I do at all. I don't teach English, I teach school -- and I win awards doing it.

Buddhas World & Buddhism Hi Stumblers! Please see my spiritual newsletter My focus is not on rituals, symbolism or gods, but on the path that Buddhism points to and its vision on the nature of our every day "reality".

All About You Birthday Basket For Branden's birthday, I decided to try to get a little creative, So of course I went on Pinterest and found the perfect thing! I created an "All About You Basket" It was centered around a "101 reason why I love" you list which, might I add, was not an easy task

The Joyful, Illiterate Kindergartners of Finland Approaching the school’s playground that morning, I watched as an army of 5- and 6-year-old boys patrolled a zigzagging stream behind Niirala Preschool in the city of Kuopio, unfazed by the warm August drizzle. When I clumsily unhinged the steel gate to the school’s playground, the young children didn’t even lift their eyes from the ground; they just kept dragging and pushing their tiny shovels through the mud. At 9:30 a.m., the boys were called to line up for a daily activity called Morning Circle. (The girls were already inside—having chosen to play boardgames indoors.) They trudged across the yard in their rubber boots, pleading with their teachers to play longer—even though they had already been outside for an hour.

Spontaneous Human Combustion Spontaneous Human Combustion Spontaneous human combustion is the alleged burning of a person's body without a readily apparent, identifiable external source of ignition. The combustion may result in simple burns and blisters to the skin, smoking, or a complete incineration of the body. The latter is the form most often recognized as SHC. Raising Boys: A dad's parenting advice for moms Let’s get one thing clear from the get go: moms are generally better parents than dads. And that goes double for me. I’ve had three kids across two marriages and I am undoubtedly the weak link. My 16-year-old daughter and 14-year-old son trust their step-mom more than they trust me, which proves that I married well but am still getting the hang of being a dad. Most of us are.
