Jennifer asks, “My daughter has such difficulty managing her emotions, can you tell me more about your three-part-story technique, I will try it today!”
Thank you for asking Jennifer, we feel we do have helpful solutions and we’ve been working 12 hours a day to make sure every flower and butterfly is in just the right place:). We know you have been waiting and we appreciate all your enthusiasm and support! I am including a printable just for you on three part stories, how to use three-part-stories is described in Bloom.
This weekend our new book Bloom: Helping children blossom (Kenney & Young, 2013) will be available on kindle for ipad, iphone and android.
Bloom presents a brain-based style of parenting that helps children learn to develop the social-emotional, behavioral and communication skills to grow and thrive as productive social beings. Moving away from consequences as a primary method of behavioral change, Bloom offers the thoughts, words and actions needed to raise socially competent, thoughtful, ethical children who grow and prosper with confidence and caring.
Bloom can help parents, teachers and care providers grow competent children who are good critical thinkers, decision makers and communicators by providing children with the skill sets they need to flourish. Emphasizing that what we say to our children and how we say it influences brain development, we offer novel solutions to 10 common parenting situations. We hope you will resonate with the words and strategies and apply them to other family and classroom situations.
Our super “edible” easy-to-read book is designed to offer you solutions in a minute. You can read the book cover to cover, or simple read a call-out or a page at a time. We hope that you will enjoy Bloom and even become a Bloom Ambassador bringing it to your friends, family, schools and community. Together, we can help children blossom.
