We all know being afraid FOR your child is normative, but what about being afraid OF your child? In recent years this has been a growing phenomenon. Parents unconsciously become stuck in a cycle of giving into their child’s unreasonable demands for fear of a temper tantrum. This gives your child a power in your relationship and they begin to learn that they can solve their problems by acting out. Great news is, things can change! It is not easy, but for the sake of your child’s future and peace in the household, it is worth the time and energy to make changes.
