Teenagers need Sleep
 
04:27
http://bratbusters.com/ Have you ever noticed that teenagers go through growth spurts during school holidays? It's because they've spent so much of same just sleeping. You may be tempted to wake your teen before you leave for work, just to make sure they don't sleep the day away. Resist that temptation and let them sleep all day if they want to. Teenagers need about as much sleep as a newborn. We don't realize that as they're busy going to school, etc. But if left to their own devices they'd probably sleep 12-18 hours/day. What you should be after them about over the holidays: Rules, chores, manners. Some signs that your teenager is going through a growth spurt: moodiness, eating more, sleepy, complaining of aches and pains, face breaking out, weight gain. ... Lisa Bunnage, Parenting Coach.

Self-Entitlementitis:  Don't Spoil Your Kids
 
03:59
http://bratbusters.com/ Don't spoil your kids or you'll regret it later. This leads to them feeling a sense of self-entitlement when they are young adults. They'll feel that the world owes them a living and they shouldn't have to do anything for what they want in life. They'll also stay home a lot longer and you really don't want that as this delays their development. The should get out on their own and learn how to look after themselves.

Toddlers on Leashes

http://bratbusters.com/ Safety is more important than anything with children. Leashes, harnesses, whatever you want to call them are great if you're out in public and you have a "runner". If anyone criticizes you it's because they've got their own anger problems and are looking for someone to lash out at ... typical bully behaviour. Send them to me to deal with :).

Parenting, It's All About You, not your Kids.  Leadership Based Parenting.
 
07:05
Website: http://bratbusters.com/ Newsletter Sign-up: http://bratbusters.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/bratbusters Parenting Blog: http://bratbusters.com/blog/ Parent Coaching Information: http://bratbusters.com/coaching/ It's all about YOU, the Parent - Leadership Based Parenting - How your children turn out is a direct result of how you parent. It's not about your children's teachers, coaches or peers. Those people have influence, but you have all the power. Don't believe for one second that peers have more power than you, not even in the teen years. And don't waste time on the Nurture vs. Nature debate as what's the point? Your children are craving strong leadership from you. I have yet to work with a troubled teen who hasn't said they wished their parents had been tougher on them. Don't get caught up in trying to give your children what they want. This is a huge mistake many parents make. Instead, focus on their needs ... the wants come later. Don't buy into the trend of being friends instead of parents. This leads to you trying to reason with your children; which usually ends up with you begging, bribing and totally losing control. Parenting is like dieting in that if you take bits of advice from here, there and everywhere, nothing's going to work. You simply have to focus on one style of parenting. Leadership Based Parenting is by far the most effective, and certainly the easiest way to get the best results. Once you get this method of parenting underway you'll start to see results almost immediately. You will no longer have any reason to 2nd guess yourself as a parent. The Toddler Parenting Program is an 8 week program beginning on February 3, 2014. It is specifically designed to get your toddler's respect in simple and easy-to-follow instructions. If you have older children and/or teenagers, and would like some guidance, check out the Coaching Packages. Parenting Presentations are designed for groups of 20+. If you have any questions, contact me.

http://bratbusters.com/ Why do parents yell at their kids? Because they don't know what else to do, it's frustration. It also leads to a loss of control over your children so it's really not worth it in the long run, there are other options.

Parenting Teen after Suicide Attempt (Part 1)
 
03:35
http://bratbusters.com/ Teen Suicide Attempt - Emergency Room Recommendations is about what to do when you are in emergency with your teen who has just attempted suicide. Do not attempt to take them home that night, make sure they stay at least 1 night in hospital, preferably 2-5. You have more power than you realize when this happens as medical staff know that no one knows your teen as well as you do so this is time to exercise that power and make sure your teen stays in hospital to get the help he/she needs. If you take them home you're just going to be sitting outside their door listening for every little sound and worrying. Best they're in hospital where they can get the help they need.

Teach Child to Discipline Themselves
 
04:16
http://bratbusters.com/ Can you really teach your children to discipline themselves? Absolutely! It's all about teaching and enforcing discipline (rules,manners,chores) when they're little then encouraging them to start taking over as they're growing up. This will lead to having confident children with high self-esteem. You won't have to be there every second worrying about the decisions they're making as they'll be doing the right thing on their own.
Teen Suicide Prevention
 
04:46
http://bratbusters.com/ Why do so many teens commit suicide? Teens kill themselves because they simply don't know what else to do. They may be sad, mad, heartbroken, bullied or just drunk/high. They commit suicide in many different ways (I don't like to post those here as have young readers) but the bottom line is that they just want the pain to end. They don't really want to die, that's sort of just a side effect as far as they're concerned, they just want the pain to end. Teens are impetuous, in the moment. Future? What's that to a teen? Not much. Bullying is a major cause of suicide (bullycide), but it's not the only one. Most of my suicidal clients are upset about family matters, not external ones. You, their parents, are the most influential people in their lives. Not their friends, their teachers or their boyfriends/girlfriends ... yes, it's true ... really. What can you do to prevent your teen from going down that path? Remind yourself that you are far more important in your teenager's life than you even realize. And certainly more than they realize. Actually, that's not true, all my teen clients talk about their parents more than their friends ... interesting isn't it? What do I do that's different from what you do? I give your kids hope. I listen and validate. I validate every single one of their feelings (not all their actions) and give them hope. By feeling heard and understood, they just naturally start having hope about the future. Hope prevents suicide. The problem you have when I tell you to listen and validate is that you're so caught up in all the crap your teens are putting you through at home that you can't see through all your own pain. I cannot sympathize with that more as know how difficult teens can be. But that's stuff we work on AFTER the listening and understanding takes place. Giving you hope is my job, so just trust that listening is the first step. Why is it important to talk about suicide? I believe suicide should be a subject that all families discuss. It's a difficult topic but so is sex, and that needs to be discussed also. Just because you talk about something it doesn't mean they're going to go out and do it. As a matter of fact, it's the opposite. I've asked pretty much all my teens clients if they've had sex and if they've thought about killing themselves. They answer me honestly and matter-of-factly, it's you who who get all upset and are unable to discuss these topics. Secrets imply shame ... so TALK!!! What if my teen has already attempted suicide, or is talking about it? GET HELP!!! This is not the time to try to work things out yourself. Schools are a wealth of resources. They have counselors and connections to help you figure out what to do. You can hire me as I specialize in teens, but don't put all your eggs in one basket. Search out help from every single source you can find. I can help you co-ordinate all the help and services you search out but will also warn you that teens are impetuous so you have to act fast and put your own emotions aside. Most teens who threaten to kill themselves don't actually follow through, but some do. There are no definitive warning signs so take them all seriously and GET HELP!!!

How to Parent Teenagers - Top 3 Tips
 
03:24
How to Parent Teeangers - Top 3 Tips 1. You're not always right. Listen to their complaints about you with an open mind as there may be some gems in there that give you insight into what you may be doing wrong. Apologize for your mistakes, and leave out the "but" after the apology. 2. Enter their world. You don't ask your teenage son to go for a pedicure with you, but you do ask him to show you his video games, etc. It's all about them, not you. 3. Parenting teenagers is give and very little take. They are self-absorbed, self-obsessed, and just basically all about ME ME ME. It's a natural part of the growing process. Accept and respect that and keep giving of your patience, understanding and compassion while waiting for theirs to catch up ... it will one day.

Parenting, How to do Bully Role Playing
 
01:40
Bullying role playing is one of the most effective ways to teach children of any age how to act when bullied.

How to Bully Proof Kids by Role Playing
 
03:28
Website: http://bratbusters.com/ The best defence against bullies is confidence and high self-esteem. That’s what I did with my own kids but when I was mentoring other people’s kids I didn’t have the time to build them up. I had to figure out another way to arm them against bullies. So we used role playing. Why is role playing so effective? Because kids learn best by doing. Here’s what you do: You set up a bullying scenario, write it out like a script with your child. Then you take turns being the bully and victim. Keep the bullying non-personal as even when acting things out meanness hurts. Make it fun. When I’d play the bully I’d say things like, “Do you use that thumb growing out of your forehead to push elevator buttons?” Kinda embarrassing writing such ridiculous stuff here, but kids gobble that stuff up. The victim role is one of calm indifference. Not ignoring as that’s antagonistic. Use indifference, then diversion. Role play could go something like this: Bully: Does your whole family have green hair or is it just you? Victim: Yup, all green tops. What are you doing this weekend? Humour can work also but it has to come naturally to the child. My son used humour but my daughter used indifference and diversion. I had my first bullying incident when I was in Grade 2. A much older student came up to my face and made fun of my last name. I laughed right along and came up with an even funnier play-on-words with my name. The bully was completely defeated and walked away. Bullies are quick to move on when they don’t get the desired reactions: fear, crying, etc. Were you ever approached by a bully? How did you handle it? Lots more on my website: http://bratbusters.com/

Steer Daughter Away From Loser Boyfriends
 
03:18
http://bratbusters.com/ You want your daughter to date a nice guy, not a creep who treats her horribly. It's all about self-esteem. You should be discussing how she deserves to be treated by guys from a very young age, certainly by the time she's a tween (9-12). You're not encouraging her to date too early, just making sure that she doesn't date wrong.

Parenting Teenagers who are Violent
 
01:50
http://bratbusters.com/ Is your teenager completely out of control? Are they rude and even violent? Are you afraid of them? You don't have to live like this, there is help out there. You're also not alone, many parents live like this for frear of asking for help and even having their teen taken away.
How to Handle Quick Tempered Children
 
03:09
http://bratbusters.com/ Many parents feed a tantrum rather than show leadership. Leadership means you disengage from a child when they are having a tantrum. In other words, you don't dive off the cliff with them. Take the high road and stay calm and quiet and wait for them to snap out of it. Remember, kids only do what works and if tantrums don't work, they won't have them anymore ... well ... they'll lessen in frequency and intensity anyway :)

Childhood Anxiety/Stress
 
03:51
http://bratbusters.com/ I have coached children as young as 4 years old with anxiety attacks. It's not just an adult problem unfortunately. Children need us adults to provide them with structure, discipline, consistency, etc. so they will feel safe and looked after. We're putting far too much pressure on children to grow up too fast. This isn't the only reason they have anxiety attacks, but it's certainly a contributing factor.

Why does bullying hurt so much?
 
02:24
http://bratbusters.com/ Bullying hurts so much because it hits you in the feelings, not the thoughts. Feelings are what make us laugh, cry, hurt, etc. Bullies are great at hitting the target, i.e., our feelings. I was bullied and fired as a result of finding out a boss has stolen money off of the company. I told my co-workers and we were all fired because of that knowledge. That's bullying. That scummy boss was eventually fired himself but that was about a year later and we were all in different jobs by then. I knew I'd done nothing wrong yet it still hurt, I felt ashamed at being fired. Validation came too late.

This week's segment was a last minute change to reflect all the recent news about teenagers being victimized on Facebook. First thing parents should do is tell their kids to consider anything they do on the internet to be public, not personal. Second thing is to drill it into them that everything on there lasts FOREVER!!! Third tip is to tell them to report anything like nudity, bullying or just plain rude.

Fearful Parenting ... how to avoid it
 
02:23
Fearful Parenting is a result of not knowing what to do, feeling out of control, allowing children to take over. This is easily avoided by having a plan in place. Once you plan out what the rules, expectations and consequences are for everyone, parents included, then things instantly start to get easier. With clarity comes control. You control yourself, not your children. They'll watch and learn how to control themselves.

What age should teenagers start dating?
 
01:41
http://bratbusters.com/ What age should teenagers start dating? From one parent to another, I think 18. But ... that's not realistic. It's kinda up to them when they start dating but I say 13 is the youngest. This is a group date with their friends in a public place and you are the driver. So, it's a very young date but you control it.

7 Silly and Free Games to Play with your Kids
 
03:58
FREE "3 Step Parenting Plan" Training: http://bratbusters.com/ Website: http://bratbusters.com/ Here are 7 silly games I used to play with my kids: 1. Balloon Tennis. Just blow up a balloon and lay out a string in the middle of the room and play balloon tennis. It’s free, active, indoors and kids love it. 2. Left Hand Lunacy. See who can write out a sentence the fastest with their non-dominant hand. 3. Staring Contest. First one to blink loses. 4. Crack a Smile. Take turns timing how long it takes to make the other smile/laugh. We had all sorts of rules as couldn’t play on each other’s weaknesses. E.g., my son couldn’t do his Jim Carey “Ace Ventura” impression as it cracked me up every time. 5. Charades. Keep it simple. Just pick someone or something to imitate, don’t worry about all the hand signals for “sounds like”, etc. 6. Make Mommy Pee Nights. We’d pick a well known personality and take turns competing for best impersonation. Was always physical impersonations of someone like Elvis, Michael Jackson, Jim Carey, etc. Those nights got so loud and wild and usually ended with me running for the bathroom yelling, “I’m peeing!!!” That’s why they were called, “Make Mommy Pee Nights”. 7. Makeover Madness. I’d get out my makeup and we’d take turns doing crazy makeovers. The more fun and goofy you are with your kids the more they will respect and want to be around you. Discipline is a piece of cake with that dynamic in place.

Toddler Tantrums/Public Tantrums
 
04:00
http://bratbusters.com/ Toddlers tantrum, well, most of them do. It's how you deal with it that makes all the difference. Never reason or negotiate with a child who is tantrumming as that's in the reward department. You keep them safe from harm but otherwise ignore them while they are having a tantrum. Stay calm, no eye contact, no discussion, no touching ... nothing! Attention is tantrum food.
