“Come on – breakfast is ready”…”How many times do I have to tell you that it’s time to leave for school?”…”Please hurry up! I’m going to be late for work.”
Does this sound like a typical morning in your house?
“Dawdling” is defined as: taking more time than necessary, to move lackadaisically, or to linger. Dawdling can wreck your morning routine. No matter the definition, dawdling can turn a perfectly good morning into a nightmare!
While morning dawdling is inevitable, it can be controlled, IF you know why it’s happening and what to do to correct it. It starts with understanding why your child is dawdling and what you may be doing to contribute to the problem. If you’re ready to bring morning dawdling to an end and establish a morning routine that will get everyone out the door on time, click the button below to sign up for our free training.
The Morning Routine
We have to remember that parent priorities are not the same as kid priorities! As we try to make our priorities (getting to work or getting them to school on time) into their priorities, children will dig in their heels with a “I’ll go when I want to go and you’re not going to make me” attitude! At that point, the morning routine turns into a full-blown power struggle.
There are some very simple and effective strategies to get your mornings back in YOUR control very quickly. But the deeper issue is the need for children of all ages to have the ability to make some decisions on their own. That doesn’t mean they’re in charge. We’ll teach you how to give up some of your power so they feel more in control of their life. When your child has a little more control of decisions, the power struggles melt away and so will your stress!
What We Do
Our online training course starts off by teaching you WHY children misbehave and how you may be contributing to the problem. (In order to correct the morning dawdling, you need to know why it’s occurring in the first place.) Organized into 6 Sessions, you’ll learn the strategies (we can them Tools) to correct the misbehaviors.
Whether you’re dealing with a toddler tantrum or an eye-rolling teen, the Tools provide you the strategies to address just about any misbehavior that comes your way. There are over 25 tools in the Tool Box – each building on the previous one. You’ll see behavior improve after implementing the very first tool and marvel as your kids become more cooperative, self-sufficient and empowered with each additional tool you learn.
I can’t tell you how this course is affecting our family already – most of all, me!! I absolutely love feeling like I’m having fun with my kids again because I’m not frustrated, guilty, or at-my wits-end anymore! – Kristin Harper
Why It Works
Too often, parenting “advice” is short on details and leaves parents saying, “Oh that’s great to know, but what do I do next?” What good is parenting “advice” if it doesn’t teach you HOW to correct the misbehaviors that are creating stress in your life?
By enrolling, not only will you learn over 25 Tools, you’ll learn how to use them, when to use them and what to say.
If You Only Remember One Thing…
Contrary to popular belief, parenting is not intuitive. How should you handle a toddler who’s throwing a tantrum in the grocery store or an eye-rolling teenager who doesn’t listen? What do you do about a child who won’t go to bed at night or do his homework? How should parents deal with constant sibling fighting? The solutions to these misbehaviors are anything but intuitive. In fact, our “intuitive responses” often make misbehaviors worse.
So, please remember this one thing…parenting is not intuitive and it’s ok to not know how to handle every misbehavior that comes your way.
Positive Parenting Solutions will teach you how to correct the misbehaviors that cause you to be frustrated and stressed.

Our mornings were an absolute disaster. The more I pushed, threatened and ultimately yelled (yes, I admit it), the more she dug in her heels. My daughter had absolutely no intentions on getting on MY schedule. After watching the videos in Session 1, I immediately understood WHY she fought me every step of the way…and I was causing most of the problem. We now enjoy each other in the morning, the routine is smooth and rarely am I late heading out the door. Thanks Amy for such a great program. – Sylvia Adams
