Whole call: CC Notes 3-17-2021 https://s3.amazonaws.com/1-SupportCalls/2021/03March/tsg-sc-3-17-21WHOLEedited.mp3 Question: If you have to do a soft hold, how do you transition out of it? I haven’t had to do it as much lately but last night our 5 year old was destructive and violent. After I started holding him, he also threatened to pee his pants. I had him go in the bathroom but he wouldn’t go while I was in the room and I wouldn’t leave while he was out of control. He hit me again and I held him in the dry shower in case he chose to pee. I told him as soon as he was still I would let go of him. He eventually got still and I let go of him. I followed him out of the bathroom and he hit me a few times softly as he yelled “Get away from me.” I told him I …

Whole call: https://s3.amazonaws.com/1-SupportCalls/2020/11November/tsg-sc-11-25-20WHOLEEDITED.mp3 Question: I have heard you say you have a good system to confront lying. I notice our kids do this about technology. “I haven’t had any screen time today.” When they have obviously had screen time. Also, I have a teenage daughter who is struggling with lying but will not go into her whole story here. Answer: https://s3.amazonaws.com/1-SupportCalls/2020/11November/tsg-sc-11-25-20-Q1.mp3 if their lying ever works it was a success and they will keep trying, and they will assume they just need to get better at lying. it’s better to tell a person they are lying when they are not than to let things slide when you’re not sure. you have to be consistent in correcting them every time. use the lying skill set i came up with.

Whole Call: https://s3.amazonaws.com/1-SupportCalls/2020/10October/TSG_SC_10-21-20_WholeEdited.mp3 Question: Thank you for the advice last week! My daughter is doing much better with allowing us to teach her. My question this week is in regards to having her go to sleep on her own. She is 8, and we have been putting her to bed by staying in the room with her and lying in her bed until she goes to sleep. We’ve done this since she was a baby. This was probably not the best decision, and, at this point, it is not teaching her any skills for getting to sleep on her own. I have hesitated in making a change because I am not sure where to start. She has a lot of anxiety at bedtime and tends to have racing negative thoughts that pop up when she slows down and tries to go to sleep. I feel like we need to …

Parents and school administrators have requested that I make a short, free curriculum that parents can use to help their children navigate some of the social issues children are often forced to encounter at young ages. This curriculum is basic but deep, and it’s a principle-based lesson plan to help parents prepare their children to be free-thinking, discerning, loving, and confident during these times of ideological warfare. The goal of this lesson plan is to initiate parent/child discussions that lead to families deliberately living by principles, better parent/child bonding, and create an environment where children are prepared to stand out and speak up when needed in loving ways about hotly-debated topics or differences of opinion. The lessons build upon each other and are meant to be implemented in order, although they don’t have to be. For additional insight on these lessons intended to create uniting and empowering family cultures for …
