If this is your first time here, I want to extend a warm welcome to you. My name is Tameka Anderson also known as the F.U.N. (Families Understanding Needs) Coach and I am here to help families build confidence through FUN conversations.
One of the ways I help my clients build confidence is through storytelling.
I hear ya.
Ms. Tameka, wouldn't storytelling make my child more likely to tell "lies"?
As a matter of fact, the more you practice the art of intentional storytelling the less likely your little one will tell lies.
Because they will be getting their need for imaginative play filled through this intentional activity versus doing it unintentionally (through lies) when it may be harmful.
Trust me I know.
I have three children and when they were younger, I had a difficult time with my middle child.
However I digress.
This is why I am passionate about helping families learn how to build confidence in FUN ways because it was no fun when I was struggling to manage behaviors with my son.
After all of that drama, I went on a quest to learn how to eliminate behavioral issues and I worked with every child I could find and I realized each and everyone of them responded favorably to one thing.
So I focused ONLY on building confidence and guess what happened?
Not only did I eliminate behavioral challenges but these little humans improved academically as well. As a matter of fact, they excelled in every other area of life from that point forward.
So parents, work smart. Become the student leader of confidence.
There are six skills that help build confidence in your child: cooperation, creativity, critical thinking, conflict resolution, curiosity and ultimately communication.
And I've used my creative muscles to develop six characters I call the Confidence Crusaders to help teach them in a FUN way. And because these characters are so amazing, we will introduce them in the next post.
Trust me your child will be learning these skills, building confidence, communicating more effectively all while having so much FUN. And in turn, your home will be more peaceful.
So come on in, and grab a pack of story cards and let's build character, confidence and conversations in a FUN way!
