You can be proud of your parenting and see amazing results when you learn to act with intentionality toward your children. Instead of just working on behavior modification, change your children's hearts and teach them to do what is good, godly, and right even when we're not around. When the heart is changed, the behavior will change.
Learning to use this kind of motivation takes effort, consistency, and strategy, but it works and it's never too late. If you're willing to commit to a little hard work up front, you'll enjoy your kids, your life, and yourself much more when you learn to start with the heart.

Parenting strategies you can be proud of
You know the feeling. You got frustrated, desperate, or overwhelmed and you reacted before you could think it through. Whether its a one-time thing or it becomes a habit, we all parent in ways we dont like. But it doesnt have to continue. Whether its bribery, yelling, counting to three, or threats of punishment you didnt mean to make, reacting never feels good. But if you can learn to act with intentionality, youll feel better about your choices and be grateful for the results.
Dr. Kathy Koch (pronounced "cook"), author of Screens and Teens and 8 Great Smarts, will teach you proven strategies for training your childs heart and parenting in a way that honors God. Shell help you move your child from, "I cant, I wont," to "I can, I will, and I did." We can do better than "Because I said so." or "No screen time for 3 days." We can do better than mere behavior modification. We can change our childrens hearts and teach them to do what is good, godly, and right even when were not around. Once youve learned to put these motivation strategies in place theres no more need to nag, youll be astounded at what your kids will do without being asked. Dr. Kathy doesnt offer a quick-fix. Starting with the heart is all about changing what children believe in order to change their behavior. And learning to use this kind of motivation takes effort, consistency, and strategy, but it works. And its never too late! If youre willing to commit to a little hard work up front, youll enjoy your kids, your life, and yourself much more when you learn to start with the heart.
