It's been years, since 1991, I am involved with Kids Activities & Kids Journalism. All these twenty years, it sure has been labor of love that came naturally with evaluating my own parenting and teaching techniques with kids. I ain't a Psychologist nor a child counsellor but have remained in constant touch with kids, parents and teachers.
I was wandering if you also have any information about the mental power and the most important question I do have is: "What MENTAL refers to when in connection with the word power". Lets say mental you might refer to the MIND but how does it work? Please help me understand since it looks like you do have a lot of knowledge.
I hope you bear with my email. I am really concerned about my son's behavior. We have lavished love and attention to our 7 yr old son before our 3 yr old came along (and we try very hard upto now to still give him that love/attention even when the younger one is already there) But I don't understand why he seems not to care for his brother. Not sharing food, toys, very much impatient with his brother, fighting, etc.
I have a six yr old girl, who does not seem to listen to anything whatsoever. She is very disobedient and high strung. I love her dearly but am at wits end trying to make her listen and behave appropriately.I am concerned that it is my fault, seeing as I have not been with her father since she was six months old. Also he has not been in her life as he chose not to be.
My 7 year old just participated his school's field day and didn't fare too well - but he sure tried. Hence, he went and kicked the school building and threw away his participating ribbons and moped around for the rest of the day. How do I sympathetically but firmly approach this? -Sarah
Hi, my name is Wendolyn. I have a problem with my son. My son lives with myself and his step dad. His real dad is constantly in and out of his life. His teacher always sends a report and says he is misbehaving. I'm wondering if having a dad and a step dad has taken a toll on him phscologically. After he either sees his dad or gets of the phone with him he acts different towards us. Not to mention this past November I had a baby girl. My son is six. I'm thinking this might have something to do with his behavior too.
