Try this: Fold your arms, now fold them the other way. It’s not so easy is it?
Feels a bit uncomfortable and much easier to do it the way you have always done it.
Learning new parenting strategies can feel like this sometimes.
We have a saying:
‘If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got!’
If you always do things the same way you will always get the same result (however much you will it to be different).
We share lots of tips and strategies on our programmes. Some need a little practice but are always worth the effort (and can help you remember how your children feel when they are learning new things and don’t always get it right the first time).
