I remember the night very clearly. I was staring blankly at my computer after a very long and very trying day. It had been one of those days full of giving reminders, back talk and meltdowns. It seemed that as soon as one challenge was overcome, we were facing the next one. The girls were finally in bed, and I was left exhausted, sad, overwhelmed, and disappointed in myself and them. And above all, I kept thinking, “Where did I go wrong? Where did these behaviors come from? How do we fix this?“
In the midst of these thoughts, I opened my email getting ready to start work for the evening and I saw an email from Amy McCready, founder of Postive Parenting Solutions. I was familiar with Amy’s work on The TODAY Show, and I had often seen and heard people talking about her popular parenting webinars. She had no idea about the way I was feeling, but her timing couldn’t have been better.
What resulted was a string of communications where I shared a bit about my parenting struggles, and Amy basically reached through the computer and offered a big hug with her words of encouragement. Her sincerity and enthusiasm for helping me was beyond evident, and I began digging through the material on Positive Parenting Solutions immediately.
Since then we’ve made some huge progress in behavior, both the girls’ behavior and my own. And it is solely because of the practical and meaningful tips I’ve learned through Positive Parenting Solutions.
