Parenting with Positive Guidance & Our First Giveaway!

If you are here at Little Stories it’s because you are interested in learning and becoming a better parent each day. Luckily, I have an opportunity to share a resource that has helped me to learn and grow as a mother. At Not Just Cute, Amanda shares invaluable knowledge and experience with families and teachers. I have found many of her posts to be thoughtful and powerful, and they have led me to think differently about how I interact with my daughter. Through her impressive background, and down to earth approach, she is able to get you thinking and changing the way you parent for the better.

The good news is that due to the positive feedback Amanda received from her e-book, she is now offering her first e-course, Parenting with Positive Guidance. The really GREAT news is that as an affiliate, Amanda has offered for me to take the class along with one of my readers. That means YOU could win a spot in class and we can learn together!

Here’s what’s included in the e-course:

  • Four Videos (sent to you weekly)
  • Two E-books
  • A Discussion Forum
  • Printables
  • Fun with me!

To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment here sharing your toughest parenting moment. The winner will be chosen on Friday, March, 30th. If you’re impatient, like me, you don’t have to wait to see if you’ve won, you can sign up now! Here’s to happy, positive parenting!

    right now, what is the hardest for me is teaching the kids to be independent thinkers; as well as to trust what their parents say to them. We seem to have taught them so well that they even seem to venture off to test what we have taught them. It breaks my heart to see them lie, or sneak, or do things that we have taught them not to do. I would love to learn a way to motivate them to continue to think and be curious/adventurous, while also trusting those in your life that are wiser. :)

    I’m writing this after a day of tough parenting. I struggle with dealing with my very stubborn almost-3-year-old… it can be very tough sometimes!! Thanks for the opportunity to win a spot in this e-course!!

    My toughest parenting moments are when kids rear out of control and I have no idea what do about it at that moment. They are already heightened in frustration (and making holes in walls!) and talking is not going to help. Watching them develop unhealthy anger is also DIFFICULT!

    I could use this ecourse! :)

  4. I think my toughest moments happen when I’m tired and my 2 year son seems to be whining about everything. I have to remind myself to adjust my attitude and figure out why he’s whining – usually he’s just tired, too.

    My son is still young (5 months), so on his behalf, I’d love to learn the preventive aspect of positive guidance. My most frustrating moments with him now are when I can’t get him to stop crying. I also work with school-age children, though, and the most difficult part with them is finding the balance between love and discipline. I’m either too mean or too soft. Arg!

  6. Patty Jones says:

    It’s so hard to discipline your child because it requires a certain amount of patience and firmness. It’s being able to let them know that you are not their friend but they can trust and rely on you to show them the right thing.

    I am a lucky mom with a 16 month old red head, younger brother to 3 sisters who play and talk with him all of the time, and born with DS. His speech delAy is our biggest challenge right now, I would love some more ideas and this course sounds perfect!

  8. Kim says:

    I think probably the most difficult part for me right now is redirecting attention seeking behaviors of my oldests daughter when littlest one needs my attention. It’s a difficult juggle daily and feeling like I give them all my attention in a positive way.

    I believe parenting is a learning curve that I continue to juggle to find balance daily. Raising two little boys to be future gentlemen and hopefully incredible husbands/fathers leaves me searching frantically for anything to read on how to get it RIGHT. In addition, juggling work and family I find myself impatient, easily frustrated, and regretfully…*sigh* not present enough. My toughest parenting challenge at this moment is how to be MORE present and to encourage their growth both emotionally and developmentally (rather than the ipad teaching them. yikes) I think this course would be incredible to take!

  10. Jennifer H says:

    My toughest parent moments are when one of my kids wants to do something and I have to say yes to one and no to the other and then feel the need to explain why. They are twelve months apart and pretty much at the same physical size but really different developmentally. Really different!

  11. Sara says:

    My toughest parenting moments these days involve trying to stay patient and positive when disciplining my just-turned-2-years-old son. I can lose my temper so easily! Mentally counting 1-2-3 helps but I would love to learn some new tricks!

  12. Emily says:

    Biting. Screaming through organised activities. It’s a struggle at the moment. I love the idea of doing a course as I think it will give me confidence that I’m managing these issues the best way possible, for those moments when I feel judged by other mothers (for not smacking/biting back etc).

  13. Anna says:

    My toughest parenting moments happen when we are out in public and my child has a tantrum. I try to stop it because I get embarrassed instead of dealing with the issue.
