Review. Be A Happier Parent with NLP.

If you are reading this post, and in general read my blog I am going to assume that you are a parent, (I mean I am mostly about parenting so excuse me if I am in fact totally wrong) and as we all know being a parent is blummin hard work! Like really hard work, and some days can just feel well a bit s*it! So when I got asked to join in with Judy Bartkowiak 'Be A Happier Parent with NLP' bloggy book tour, I said yes, because who doesn't want to be a little bit happier!

‘Be A Happier Parent With NLP’ is a guide to using life coaching skills to enhance your parenting written by author Judy Bartkowiak. She has an NLP training and coaching practice NLP Kids, specialising in child and parenting issues.

'Be A Happier Parent with NLP' aims to give you the skills you need to raise a confident, secure child in a confident and secure manner. Using the tried and proven techniques of neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) to help you tackle the areas in which you feel you lack confidence as a parent. With the aim of being able to find yourself feeling less guilty, in control, and, key in my situation, communicating better with your child.

The book includes insights from the Judy's experience of working with children, exercises to help you engage with the book and act on what you learn. As well as quick read introductions to the key principles of the book. 

Throughout the book there is alot of help with common problems and lots of quick tips for success, again all based on Judy's many years of experience. There are also tests throughout the book and online to keep track of your progress alng with some quick refreshers to help you remember the key facts.

Since starting to read the book, I wont lie, I haven't yet finished but I am a work in progress and would rather take my time than rush read in one go and still feel no different, I am starting to make small changes to the way I am parenting.

Changes such as taking a moment to stop and look for the good intention. So OK, Ellie (still) hadn't tidied her room after almost a week of her being asked BUT she had in fact been helping me out, watching her brother and sister whilst I got my jobs done...

Some of the excercise's through the book are, on first sight, a little strange (write your own obituary?!?!) but in context and reality a very good excersice to find the positives. Your not always a grumpy a*se, and if you are? Change it!!

I have just started Chapter 3, which is based all on communication. I'm so excited to read this because I am 1million% positive this is where I have a big downfall as a parent!! I'm busy (most of the time), I'm tired (like erm all the time) and sometimes (OK, OK ALL the time) I don't communicate well, thus ending in arguemnts, thus making sure that I am unhappy which means the kids get shouted at which means they are not happy...which means EVERYONE is in a foul mood!

As I continue on in the book the upcoming chapters touch upon Coping With Conflict, Time Managemnt, Confidence, Feelings. Change, Dealing with Teens (eeekkkss, is it really only a couple of years away!!) I am really looking forward to working my way through the book and becoming a happier parent.
