Hi there! Last year or so my husband and I took something called The Total Transformation Program published by Legacy Publishing company. It is literally “A Parent’s Program for Managing Challenging Behaviours in Children”. It is put together by James Lehman who was very much an Oppositional Defiant Child growing up. Many parents have been very blessed that he went from being a ‘wild child’ to an educator keen on helping everyone he can with his curriculum. Here is a link to a parent who gives a little information on it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gYhuEbozerU
In my blog in the next little while I will cover a little of the material to whet your appetites — but according to the buzz on line now you can get the program for free. Thank you James Lehman! Here is the link to see for yourselves. http://parentingallies.com/you-can-get-total-transformation-program-free/
It really is an awesome tool for parents who are struggling with the behaviours of their children. I personally have found myself using portions of it with the many kids who continue to be part of my life work. I hope you find some tools for your personal tool kits. The material will help with adult grown children as well. It is never too late to change behaviour or cope better.
Talk at you later — Share if you care! Always — Veronica
