While dating dh we always would dream on how we would be "That type of parent" well to our shock we have become nothingo f what we wanted to be. We both agree that something has got to be done and a huge ovehaul is in order. We both agree that we got off on the wrong foot in parenting and need help. When doing searches for parenting classes locally, alls I can find is for new parents of newborns. These would offer us nothing we dont already know hot to do, like bathe,swaddle,feed etc. I have hit the internet for ideas to apply in our situation, but everything has come to fail. I have watched Nanny 911 and to be honest my kids are just like the ones I see on tv. My kids are trying to take over the house and I am struggling on how to handle these situations without the end reult being negetive. I was raised in a inviroment that I just dont want my kids to have, and when I look at things I can see we are headed down that path. Would any of you have suggestions on some must have reading, or ways that are very effective with altering the behavior, but not altering the child ???
