“WHEN TOO MUCH IS NOT ENOUGH !”
Giving to our children is instinctive – it seems appropriate, positive, and beneficial. Giving makes us feel like good parents and it makes our children feel good.
However, while all parents want to raise children who are motivated, responsible, hard-working, self-disciplined, and caring, many parents – even those who are trying to be the best possible parents – unintentionally undermine these goals through their patterns of giving and by the expectations they hold for their children.
HOW DO YOU give time, things, praise, attention to your children without “spoiling” them?
HOW DO YOU teach children to be responsible for their achievements and their failures?
HOW DO YOU instill a work ethic in your child?
HOW DO YOU foster sensitivity and caring for others?
Find out the answers to these questions and many more in a seminar presented by Susan C. Stone, M.F.T, author of THE INDULGENCE TRAP. The seminar looks at:
- WHY well-intentioned parents overindulge their children.
- The RISKS of overindulgence.
- What is APPROPRIATE GIVING and what are APPROPRIATE EXPECTATIONS for your child.
- A SPECIFIC THIRTEEN-POINT PLAN for raising the kind of child you want.
