The Dreaded Homework Struggles

As a mother of six, I know only too well the struggles of getting my kids to do their homework – Family homework struggles take many different forms. The most common is procrastination, where the child puts off the task until the last moment. Then there is the child whose mind goes blank, careless mistakes and the child doing the bare minimum. Other families find that the child does his or her homework while also watching TV, instant messaging friends or even talking on the phone. Of course this, too, leads the child reducing the benefit of the learning experience. It is also common for parents to get into protracted fights with their child about starting, concentrating on, completing his or her homework which leads to an endless cycle of bribes, threats and tears. Believe it or not, many families have a combination of all these issues!   With hypo coaching, Debbie works with parents and child to transform the negative experience into a natural routine whereby the child takes the responsibility for their actions supported and guided by their parents.

Have you Suffered Enough ?

Having worked with thousands of clients, I have dealt with many issues, habits and symptoms and believe it or not, some people will keep suffering and hold onto their issue/problem/habit.  So much so, they look on me being the facilitator as the enemy, the one who is calling them out.   The question I ask myself, and my client, is "What are you getting out of having this behavior/issue/symptom ?" This is known in my world as the secondary gain or negative payoff in having their problem.  For many it…

What is Self-Esteem ?

  Let me start off 2019 by looking back over thousands of client sessions which I have facilitated and look at what they all have in common - LOW SELF ESTEEM.  In fact, let us look at what Self Esteem really is. A definition may be "It refers to an individual's sense of his or her value or worth, or the extent to which a person values, approves of, appreciates, prizes, or likes him or herself (Blascovich & Tomaka, 1991)."  This may well be a good definition but how this…
