I attended my first ever workshop with you at this event and it was truly inspiring and life changing. I look forward to attending more in future and following your pages on social media to gain more knowledge and insight. Thank you so much Sylvia we are so very lucky to have someone like you helping guide us to becoming better effective communicators xx
What were your struggles?
Having no family support or guidance I was completely clueless on how to deal with my headstrong 2 year old daughter. I was often losing my calm and didn’t appreciate the parent I was becoming. We noticed some big emotions as my daughter moved into her toddler years, getting her to do everyday tasks like brushing her teeth, getting dressed or leaving home to meet friends was challenging.
We would hear a lot of “ I don’t want to do that”, “I don’t like that plan” and it used to take us close to an hour at times to just get her to brush her teeth. Having to do this everytime and everyday left me feeling totally drained. There were also some temper tantrums when she didn’t get what she wanted and due to sheer exhaustion we have ended up giving in.
