Believe it or not, you are the greatest voice of influence in your child’s life. You’re not the only voice, but you are the greatest! How do you leverage this to build a lifelong relationship with your child? Here’s the answer…
My new book, Winning The Heart Of Your Child: 9 Keys To Establishing A Positive Lifelong Relationship With Your Kids debuts today and I thought I’d take a moment to share a little more about the 9 central keys I share in the book. After nearly 2 decades of working with parents and families, I’m convinced these 9 keys are the answer to maximizing your influence in your child’s life and establishing the healthiest relationship possible.
Key #1- Blend Love and Discipline for Influence
Key #2- Understand and Embrace The Shift
Key #3- Amplify Other Voices Of Influence
Key #4- Use Your Time Wisely
Key #5- Stay Involved With Your Kids
Key #6- Commit To Consistency
Key #7- Love No Matter What
Key #8- Listen To What Is True About You
Key #9- Leave A Lasting Legacy
My hope is that this book, and these keys, transform your parenting journey. I know how hard parenthood is, and how often you feel like you have no influence in your child’s life. Most of the time, you feel lost, and completely disconnected. But, your children need you. They are taking life-cues from you even when it doesn’t seem like it. Stay the course, stay engaged, and love them unconditionally. You are a good mom…a good dad! Believe that about yourself.
