Allen ISD Middle School Counselors
Does this sound familiar??
Exhausted from hassling your children day after day
Where is the joy in parenting
Stuck in a cycle of never ending arguing and explaining
Many times the way we say things makes our children more angry than what we say.
Example: No you can’t go outside until your homework is done vs. Yes you can go outside just as soon as your homework is done
Words can be powerful and painful, especially when they come from a parent. Hurtful criticism can leave scars that last a lifetime.
