Positive Pushing Audio Workshop

We are at that point in the school year where a familiar argument can be overheard.  It usually follows your eight minute parent-teacher conference where you are told that your child is very bright, but not working to his potential.

“You’re pushing him.”

“No, I’m not, you’re babying him and he won’t learn to be accountable and responsible for his work.”

“You set the expectations, and now you expect him to reach them.  What if he can’t?”

“And what if he can, but you’re just allowing him to be lazy?”

This free audio workshop by Dr. Jim Taylor is one of the best discussions I’ve heard on this topic.  I suggest that if you are having this discussion, you both listen.

Have a great week!

    I have battled all my life with schools. Personally and for my children. Lately, my son’s headmaster said to the students (16,17 & 18 yrs old) at assembly that if they did not “fixed themselves up, they will have to wear a uniform because they look like cockroaches creeping out of the gutter” ! Hmmmm, so how is that for self esteem building?

    To motivate your kids when schools are that inept about children’s need becomes almost hypocritical.

  2. What a wonderful blog. I invest several hours on the web reading through blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to to begin with give kudos to whoever produced your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an post. I honestly think there is a skill to writing articles that only a few posses and frankly you have it. The combination of informative and high quality content is definitely very rare with the big quantity of blogs on the internet.
