When I became a mother, I assumed the responsibility of “shaping & moulding” a child. I was so caught up with this responsibility, that it became hard work & a frustrating chore. Parenting Matters changed that. They helped me become a more aware parent.
Aware of the real purpose of being a parent: to help my child discover life joyfully, to help him feel good about himself, to help him be empowered to live life according to his dreams.
Aware that I was not alone in feeling that I was fighting a battle with my child: I met parents who all had similar stories to tell. I learnt from their experiences.
Aware that my child has needs that cause him to act in a certain way: A lot of behaviour is the result of the physical & emotional needs of a child, needs that change as he grows. Parenting Matters helped me recognize the natural needs behind behaviour and how to satisfy those needs without breaking the rules of the house!
Aware of how I communicated with my child despite my best intentions. They introduced me to aspects of effective communication that helped me in my relationships with friends & family, not just my child!
Thank You Parenting Matters – for helping me enjoy motherhood every step of the way.
