Jealousy over a new baby is not uncommon. The older child can go from having all of your time to being forced to share it with a baby which gets lots of love and attention. They learn quickly that smacking is unacceptable, particularly when you refrain from smacking yourself, and instead speak honestly and firmly to your child.

Do I have to take the course all at once?
Answer
Testimonials

I think the focus of your course is brilliant as it took me years at university and doing college courses to gain some of the information you have managed to compact into these e-books. Conscious parenting is very much a step in the right direction for people wanting to be more aware of their relationship with all people (including themselves). It is an extremely thorough, well thought out and planned course. I actually can’t fault it – well done!

The last book in the series looks at styles of parenting and the effectiveness of each. It also looks at possible causes when the 4-part I challenge doesn’t work. We bring in the ‘soft no’, which is another alternative.
What are the possible causes of the ‘4-part I challenge’ not being effective? This particular skill may not work if it was your problem and not the child’s or if you were not being congruent. If you behave aggressively rather than assertively you may not get the desired result either.

When all else fails, you can save energy with the ‘soft no’. This skill can be used when you really don’t want to negotiate and you just want them to do as you ask. This can be used in potentially dangerous situations or when you’re just too tired to be bothered.

Finally, we conclude with reaching agreements with your children and then making sure they stick to them. This could be regarding simple issues such as leaving lights on, to more serious things like coming home later than agreed.
