Turn Disruptive Students into Helpful, Confident Kids

Proper Expectations: Why Kids Do Things on Their Own Terms
Why does my daughter only want to do things on her own terms? Why won’t my kids respond to me right away? How can I get my kids to be grateful? Kirk answers these questions AND helps you understand your child in a brand new way.
Kid Who Acts Like Nothing Happened After Meltdown
Kid Who Acts Like Nothing Happened After Meltdown You have a child who lashes out, screams disrespectful things to you, perhaps even throws and breaks something…and then later comes downstairs from his bedroom LIKE NOTHING HAPPENED. So how do you handle that next time? Kirk shows you in this very emotional and practical podcast.
Should You Express Disappointment In Your Child?
When your child is saying hurtful, disrespectful things to you, how should you respond? Kirk shares a very specific strategy that may get your child’s attention AND lead to problem solving instead of escalating situations.
Consequences That Work & Build Trust, Not Shame
Consequences That Work & Build Trust, Not Shame Discipline often carries this heavy, “me-against-my-child” tone that leads to a defensive responsive and confrontation.

Get Your Kids to Listen Without Resistance
You’re picking your child up from a playdate, taking your toddler to the store, or trying to get your teenager to listen to you. And yet they resist even more.

5 Discipline Tools To Get Your Kids to Cooperate
5 Discipline Tools To Get Your Kids to Cooperate Imagine if the only tool you have in your house to fix things is a hammer. You’d end up breaking a lot of things you meant to repair.

Why Defiance Is An Opportunity
Your toddler spits out, “I don’t like you, Mommy. You’re mean.” Your fifth-grader comes at you with attitude. Your teenager flips you off and says things you never would have said to your parents. So how can you turn these situations into huge opportunities to problem solve and get your kids to trust you? Kirk shows you how.
