… I became a better mom. And a better wife, a better sister and hopefully a better person. I don’t even know how I learned about Jesper Juul’s Your Competent Child, but I am really grateful I did. Then, I found out about the Family-Lab organization that delivers seminars, lectures, workshops and counseling to parents and families. So I read the book, signed in for some workshops and I already feel like we’re on the right track.
For those of you who have children, you know you don’t want to repeat your parents’ mistakes. You’d do anything to change some particular approaches, and yet, given the situation, you surprize yourself doing exactly what your parents did and you swore you wouldn’t do. I happened to me, and I felt like the worst mom ever. But then, reading the book, I now know why I did or said some things, but more than that, I know know how to deal with those situations.
So I highly recommend to all parents out there to give Your Competent Child book a chance! It will change your life, and most certainly will help you build an excellent relationship with your children!
