You have been patient. You’ve been kind. You’ve believed the best about her. You’ve given a Speak Life Badge and said the script word for word. You’ve tried everything.
She still storms off and slams the doors. She still rolls her eyes. It feels impossible to get through to her.
Listen in to this episode of Q&A Thursday as I will share what you can do when you’ve tried it all and still can’t seem to get through to your child.
We have covered a lot of ground in this Q&A Thursday, including:
0:44 – Have you ever said, “O! The drama in our house!” Ever caught yourself saying, “She knows how to push all my buttons.” I share some of the reasons as to why your son or daughter may be slamming the doors and rolling their eyes.
2:00 – Here’s what you can ask yourself to better understand why your son or daughter may be slamming the doors and rolling their eyes.
2:23 – Let’s talk about perceptions and expectations. They mean something for us as parents. We can’t forget that our children are developing their own perceptions and expectations.
4:59 – Listen in as I share what you can say to your kids.
6:35 – Try these three intentional changes in your actions and in your words to reconnect with your children and to hear and to honor one another.
5:31 – Remember one more thing about slamming doors and rolling of eyes. Mom, Dad, do not withdraw your faith for this child. Do not stop believing the good in her and about her.
10:16 – Be consistent. Continue to speak out loud good things about her, words of promise and a future. Call into being what you do not yet see with your words. (Romans 4:17) I share what it sounds like to speak words of promise over your children.
If you feel at your wits end. If you feel lost and unsure of what to say next, use these declarations at the front of all three sticker award books. Say them every day out loud. Walk through your home saying these declarations out loud.
Life is in the power of your tongue. So call into being what you do not yet see with your words. (Romans 4:17)
My heart is for you and your children. If you have any questions or want specific help for your situation, I am happy to be a listening ear and to offer help.
