Do you have an angry toddler aged 2 or 3?
Is your angry toddler hitting, kicking, pulling hair, biting, pinching or scratching? If so, you are probably at a complete loss about what to do.
Your toddler may be lovely at times. Sweet, cute and funny. And yet when they hit you or hit other children, you feel upset not only because it hurts you, or another child, but also because you feel helpless to stop it.
It can also be embarrassing, because you feel judged by your parents, other family members, friends or people you meet, because your toddler is the one hitting out, and you feel like a bad mum or dad, because you don’t have the skills to deal with it.
Someone may have suggested your toddler needs a good smack, and although you instinctively know that won’t help, you feel so angry at times, you’re wondering if you should do that.
Or you may already have smacked your child, felt awful afterwards, and realised it didn’t help.
You are probably wondering if there is anything you can do with an angry toddler. It seems to be an impossible situation. You may be desperate to know how to stop your toddler hitting and get back in charge at home.
The good news is, I can help.
There are three steps to working with me.
- Arrange a call, so I can fully understand your child.
- Arrange six online sessions, to learn the parenting strategies YOU need.
- Help everyone see the sweet little gorgeous toddler you have, and restore peace and harmony at home.
How I can help
Working with me will help you learn effective strategies to prevent your child hitting or hurting other people, know exactly what to do if they do hit, and see more of the lovely toddler you know you have.
At the moment, your toddler doesn’t have the skills to manage their frustrations and anger, and stop themselves hitting. They need you to learn the strategies to help them. They hate you shouting at them, but they genuinely don’t know yet how to control their big emotions.
Do any of these sound familiar?
Is your toddler …
- Hitting, kicking, punching, scratching or pulling hair?
- Biting you?
- One minute, sweet and gorgeous, then suddenly, when you tell them to do something they don’t want to do, lashes out?
- Throwing things?
- Ignoring you, not listening or having to be told everything many times?
- Downright refusing to do what you’ve asked?
- Hurting their brother or sister?
- Always wanting to have their own way?
- Letting you down in front of friends and family?
If any of these are true for you, it’s important to get help to tackle this now, before your child gets a reputation for being aggressive.
How do you know this can be sorted?
If your toddler is lovely sometimes you get glimpses of the kind, loving, thoughtful child within, it means your child does know how to manage their anger at times, but has got into bad habits at home. This is good news, because your lovely child is still in there, hidden beneath the angry exterior.
Seeking help and learning effective strategies to help your child manage their difficult emotions will help you see more of your extraordinary child, and become the hero and guide your child needs.
Parenting skills sessions
In just six 90-minute Skype parenting sessions with me you can learn the essential skills you need to manage your child’s behaviour. I’ll be your teacher, mentor and guide. With unlimited text or e-mail support between sessions to make sure everything is working.
It will be the best investment you could make in your child’s future and could save you years of anguish and worry as your child becomes a teenager.
Children don’t come with a manual. Most parents don’t know how to handle their child’s angry outbursts well. Sometimes you need training for the most important job you’ll ever do – raising your own child. Good parents seek help when they are not sure how to tackle a problem.
Life as a parent can be fun. You can have peace and harmony at home, and feel you’re in charge again. You just need to know how.
Why work with me?
As a child behavioural expert, and child anger-management specialist, I can teach you how to deal with your angry child, so they become happier, independent, and more self-reliant.
A child who you’ll love being with at home, and who makes you proud, so friends and family can see what a great job you’re doing.
It will require time and effort to learn and practice the skills. But at the end of the sessions, you will know exactly how to tackle your child’s difficult behaviour, avoid the power battles and enjoy being a parent again. If you invest the time and money to learn the skills, and put what you learn into practice at home, you can transform your child’s difficult behaviour.
What’s the investment?
The investment, for skills that will last the rest of your child’s life, is 9 hours of your time and £1,500.
You can pay in full before the sessions, or pay for the first session (£350) first. and the remainder before the second session. Then you can have a free 7th session, 4-6 weeks after we finish, to make sure everything is still working and tackle any new issues that have cropped up.
Don’t wait until your child gets a reputation for hitting out, because then the difficult behaviour may become embedded.
