Have you ever had a kid or a teen that misbehaved? I have! I can remember well the tantrums, the little princess laying on the floor a kicking and a wailing because she wanted want she wanted in the moment. I remember well having to deal with a daughter who loved to strip because her clothes just were not comfy. Now days I just have a teen with attitude. But no matter what you are dealing with, guess what, you are not alone!
Every parent deals with misbehaving kids. Sometimes we want to pull our hair out, some days it is frustrating and for me some days seemed like a power struggle. Recently I had the chance to attend Alyson Schafer’s book launch for Aint Misbehavin, her 3rd book on the subject of parenting.
I was lucky enough to be able to ask Alyson a question about those dang power struggles. Well her answer to me has helped me redefine my relationship with my tween. We are having more and more genuine conversations and working as a team. Instead of I am your mom, so just do it. There is conversation. There is more peace here now and well alot more fun for both me and her. So I am thankful to Alyson for her suggestion.
In her book Aint Misbehavin she lists 100 of our common parenting struggles from boggers to tv time she covers the gambit with practical solutions that have an impact. The layout makes the book an easy read and a great guide, because you can get to the solution for your exact issue in a matter of seconds. Trust me this book will be dogmarked by the time you are done raising your kids.
