You're a good parent, so what happened? You brought home a little bundle of joy with big dreams for the future. Early on you noticed something was different. Your child was busy, independent, and headstrong. You began to read parenting books and blogs, but the advice just didn't seem to work. You talked to friends and family, but their comments left you feeling lonely and misunderstood. Your child has sudden changes in emotion, with outbursts that are difficult to manage. You worry about whether school, daycare, and babysitters can handle your child. You want people to see your child's amazing strengths and to listen to you without judgment. You want realistic tips that work for busy families. You knew that parenting would be hard work, but now you need to calm the chaos.
I'm Dr. Jaime Wetzel, a child psychologist and parent of a strong-willed kid. I love their passion but WOW are they tough to parent! Traditional parenting advice doesn't always fit our kiddos.
