The Three Rs
Parenting is a lifelong challenge which easily becomes overwhelming. Choosing what to do, what to say, and how to say it is a daunting responsibility. Compiling all of the necessary skills to proceed can quickly result in information overload.
The Parental Tool Box breaks down each skill, strategy, and technique into a digestible format by presenting it in the groundbreaking Reframe, Replace, and Rewire framework.
Home Improvement Projects
Skills are meant to be learned and experienced. Each chapter concludes with Home Improvement Exercises which provide simple scripts to guide you along, rewiring your reflexive behaviors for more effective ones. Each exercise is specifically designed to increase your comfort and ease using skills which promote mutual respect.
The Power of Words
It is often said that the pen is mightier than the sword, but we rarely process how that applies to our speech. The words we use profoundly impact our Relationships and help define who we are as people. In this section we explore the power you have over the words you choose.
Relationships can be complicated and we often joke they don’t come with an instruction manual. The second section of The Parental Tool Box presents an extensive toolset allowing you to always find the right tool for the job of improving your Relationship with your child.
Change and Personal Development
As we’ve mentioned, being a parent is a full time job. So how do you find time to improve yourself on top of everything else? The final section of The Parental Tool Box simplifies your life by providing exercises which simultaneously support growth for both you and your child. As you each experience success together suddenly anything is achievable with teamwork.
Who Is The Parental Tool Box For?
When we first put pen to pad, the goal of this book was to address the needs of parents whose relationships with their children were in crisis, often resulting in the need for out-of-home placement. As we started to share our manuscript with others they found it to be universal and transformational. It was clear this book needed to be shared with a much broader audience.
