I have lost count of the number of times I get a life saving tip from Parent Support Hub. The article on principle based parenting has been such a huge wake-up call for me as a mother. Thank you so much for helping me get back on track.

Being a guy from the military I have been used to hierarchy and a command and control structure. When it came to parenting, it took me years before realizing that such an approach doesn’t work long term. When my boys turned 4 and 8 years old it seemed like a switch was flipped and I went from having two obedient boys to two aggressive fighting bulldogs ready to chew my head off.

After taking your course, I realized that my way of loving them was just pushing them further and further away. It was a hard pill to swallow. But with some guidance, encouragement and some time, we are not back to being a tight family unit again. Thank you!

Your stupidly named super hacks actually worked! I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t tried it myself. There is now no more shouting in our house and getting Cindy ready in the morning is as easy as 1-2-3. You guys are awesome!

Susie BairdMother of Cindy, 4 year old

Letting go of control for every minute of Jason’s life felt like the worse possible torture for a mother. The first week was hell, the second week, tempers were at an all time high. Then it got better from the third week onwards. It’s now 4 months down the track and we can’t believe how far we have come as a family. Thank you for the insightful articles and the coaching session, it was invaluable for us.

I just wanted to quickly drop you guys an email to say thank you for providing all the resources, inspiration, and practical advice on principle based parenting. One particular technique which has saved me more times than I dare to count is the idea of ‘previewing the day’. I make it a point to always tell my son “the plan”. Just wanted you to know that the information you provide here changes lives…at least mine anyways.

Cheryl MackaySingle mum of Sean, 7 year old

Such great info, thank you! Parental leadership wasn’t even an idea that I had heard about until you guys did a blog post. It definitely does not come naturally for me so I have to remind myself of your advice daily. I am thankful for your website and everything you do. When are you guys launching a podcast so I can take you along to listen during my trips to the shops?

Thirty years ago, parents didn’t worry much about screen time. Sure, kids watched TV but video games only entered the modern home in the 1970s and computers about a decade later. With the rise of personal technology and smaller screens, kids can lose track of time staring at a screen for hours on end. As the amazing parent you are, you know that screen time isn’t good for your kids. But do you know why that is?

I knelt down on the ground in front of my two year old and said slowly, “You do not throw sand at people. Sand hurts in your eyes. Ouch!” Fast forward ten years. I grabbed my twelve year old by the arm and said, “Heh, you know sand hurts when it gets in your eyes. I’m disappointed that you chose to throw sand at your brother.”

“I’ve tried everything! She doesn’t fall asleep until nearly 11 o’clock at night and I have to drag her out of bed at 6 in the morning! She’s exhausted, and so am I.” I listened to a young mom complain about how difficult it was to put her daughter to bed every single night. And then she said something that made it obvious what the problem was.

One of the most fascinating ways you can play with your newborn is to make faces at them. Have you ever done this? Maybe you’ve stuck your tongue out and witnessed them doing the same. Newborns have the ability to mimic our facial expressions just hours after birth! While the goal is not to teach your young baby to stick their tongue out at people, it is an interesting experiment that proves we are born with brains that imitate what other people do. Scientists have studied this with interest since the 1970s. And their findings give me hope as a parent. I think you’ll be encouraged as well.

Here is powerful tool that is thousands of years old. What I’m about to share with you is a parenting tool that is tried and tested. Your parents would approve and so would your grandparents. This tool is the simple act of getting your kids to spend more time outdoors. It sounds so easy, but if you’re parenting children or teenagers today, you know the struggle is real. It’s hard to get kids outside! They’d rather be inside sitting passively, entertained by technology. And I can totally relate to wanting to keep kids safely indoors. You can’t be outside with them all the time. You have work to do and meals to make.

Here’s a quick test. Name as many emotions as you can in two minutes. Set a timer and start writing them down. When you’re done, count up the number of emotions you could name. Now go over that list and identify how many emotions you feel on a regular basis. There are no right or wrong answers. This is just an exercise for you to see how limited - or not - your emotional vocabulary is.

There is a myth that anger is something we inherit. Anger is not inherited. We know that the length of our fuse is not predetermined at birth. The way we express anger is not determined by our genes. How we process anger and respond to the fiery emotion is something that we learn when are children. So we CAN blame our parents, but we can’t blame our genes. It’s not something we inherit, it’s something we learn.

You don’t have to look too far before you find an expert on parenting. Books are written by parents and doctors alike and you can see these so-called Parenting Experts all over the internet. There are websites you can read, podcasts to listen to, YouTube videos to watch and of course, TV talk shows with their hidden cameras confirming that we are not alone in our parenting struggles. One of the TV shows that I used to watch is Dr. Phil. I liked Dr. Phil’s common sense approach even though he could be a little brutal with his honesty. I can’t imagine having the courage to go on his show and be subjected to his masked insults, but it’s definitely interesting to watch parents volunteer to expose their toddler tantrums and teenage fiasco’s for the world’s entertainment.

Do you enjoy feeling when someone is trying to change you? What if your spouse asked you to change something and you didn’t see the point? You think, “What’s wrong with me now? Am I not good enough for you?” But here we are, as parents, constantly trying to change our children. Make them better, kinder, more responsible, etc. etc. etc. Do we stop and consider what it must feel like to never be meeting the standards set for us by someone else?
