Class member: Not being consistent
Class member: Not being patient. It takes time.
You can work on moving the action line down so you act while you are still patient. That’s how you keep your patience.
Class member: This morning my daughter was watching “Brain Games” and they talk about how your brain works and he was saying if you want to change a habit the best thing to do is to replace the habit with something else instead of trying to change the habit.
Class member: I really liked when you said a child misbehaves when a child is discouraged. So I watched for them to start getting discouraged and acted to prevent it.
Class member: I shouldn’t have missed last week because my kids have been grounded from everything on our trip.
Mary Poppins bag….at each point along the way they get something out of the bag from the Dollar Store.
Class member: The biggest problem I saw was that my son started going to YM in a new ward. He said I was so respectful because they were boring and they just sat there and talked and talked and talked. It’s hard when you aren’t in control of the situation. I talked to one of his YM leaders last night and I think it went well. I’m listening for some tools to give him. He did come up with some suggestions. He feels like all these boys planned the year without him and there was no buy in. He still needs to feel important.
Let him come up with the tools. You might also have a conversation with the Deacon’s quorum president to help him feel included. They need to be trained.
Class member: I took the time off and just picked up my son from school. We spent the day together. He was excited and shocked when you saw me. That I think helped fill him up a little so he could be a little better. He needs more.
An event will not fill the bucket totally. It took more than one shot to empty it. It’s easier to get withdrawn than to fill up. Get in the habit of being in the positive.
Class member: You talked last week about how we should never address multiple problems. We did with this one kid. We were ready to start the day over at 4pm. He is 15 years old.
15 is a tough year. They feel like they have it and they know it and they have no fear. They think they know it all.
Class member: I would like some tools to get my kids to school in the morning.
I think you need Family Counsel. Listen to that one.
