Introducing my family
by: Rosita


I have 3 children aged 8, 5 and 18 months. I am wanting to use Super skills for kids for my 8 year old. He has got very withdrawn since the birth of our youngest (a girl) who has been very demanding. (I know the program would not suit her, she is too young)

My oldest, used to be helpful and cheerful, but now seems to be sullen and resentful. I don't know how to help him, and get him back to the cheerful boy he was.

Hoping super skills will help us.

1 Girl aged 11

Hi everyone,

I am from Canada, and have a girl who is 11 going on 16. She is mostly delightful, but at times can be a little madam. I am hoping the program will help her to be more considerate, or learn to think of others. I also think it will be a good thing to do together, with a focus on her. However having read through the course, I doubt she is going to want to work on the goals I want her too! But we'll see what we come up with.

Annie, how can you encourage a child to work on the issue you think they most need to deal with?

looking forward to this program,

Hi Sue,

I am moving the question part of your introduction into a question of it's own, so it has a heading. It's a great question, and I want others to see replies, plus they can comment on how they manage to encourage their kids to work on something. If you comment after my reply, then you will be able to set notifications so you get an email when other parent's contribute.

Thanks for posting!

Welcome Rosita and Sue,

Feel free to ask as many questions as you like. Just submit each one as a new question, so it makes it easier for other forum users to spot the headlines that they will find helpful.

Looking forward to getting to know you,

Larkin Family

Hi there, I am keen to practice law of attraction parenting for my two boys Jack (4.5 yrs) and Floyd (3 in November).

I am on the cusp of some major changes in our lives. The boys were born in England and we are now in Wanaka New Zealand (40 mins from my parents). I came out here without a job knowing that I will manifest my life purpose helping people feel better about their lives. I just feel that I need to do some personal development in my parenting to release any resistance I may have.

The boys love it here and are having a great time I am just needing some help to relax and enjoy my parenting role instead of feeling on edge waiting for the next tantrum.

I knew it would get easier being over here and it has been. I love the bonus material on natural consequences rather than reward and punishment.

Sometimes I am just suprised by Jack's behaviour - he is a very loving, sensitive boy and I have started a gratitude diary for him (I have had one for 18months) which he loves. I know I need to work on remaining calm however sometimes if feels as though he is just testing me to see what I will do by continuing to back bad choices eg just after having a lovely lunch taking a bucket full of coffee beans and spreading them all over the house or while he is on the flying fox loving it slapping me across the face.

My intention is to use this program to relax as a parent and laugh more with the boys.

I look forward to working with you all. Jack and Floyd have loved both law of attraction games.

kind regards
Rachel Larkin

Wow you are living in a beautiful part of New Zealand. (I'm a Kiwi myself but not living in NZ) I am sure things will unfold perfectly for you, but it is sometimes hard to just relax and let the opportunities present themselves!

Your boys sound like a bundle of energy. Kids do often reflect what is going on for parents, so it may well be that some of Jack's outbursts are highlighting some of your tension in wanting to get onto your next adventure, but not being sure what that will be.

However, he also needs to know it is not OK to hit you - sometimes parents hesitate to act for fear of not being a good LOA Parent. Just note how you were feeling prior to him reacting. It may seem out of the blue, but sometimes it can be he has sensed your energy switching away. You can't force yourself to have fun with them, it may be there are times when you would actually prefer to be doing something else, but have not honored yourself, and he has bought you up with a sharp crack! Helping him to learn to get your full attention without the drama would be preferable :)

It sounds like you are doing some wonderful things, such as the gratitude book for him, plus focusing on having more fun and relaxing with your parenting is a wonderful goal.

Looking forward to supporting you and your family be all you can be,
Annie D

Click N Kids would have to be one of my subscribers most popular programs, and from what they say, it is mostly because the kids have fun while they are learning. In fact they don't even realize they are learning! Click N kids are using the Looney Tune Characters now in their phonics program, which of course kids just love.
