Don’t Stew – Ask Sue Parenting Q & A

Q. Dear Sue, We are all more than aware of the impact #MeToo is having across all industries and impacting on daughters and women. But how do I make sure my young son of 8 grows up respecting women? Grainne O’Regan from County Clare in Ireland

I was on LoveSport Radio discussing this:

Answer After #MeToo is it really any different raising boys?

My article 

Q. Hello Sue my son is 9 and he struggles to do things for himself. I read in The Guardian that children with over-controlling parents struggle to manage their emotions later in life. What do I need to do to help him? Henry Edwards from Belgium

Answer – Webinar – The Crucial ‘C’s in my Parenting Online  Club

In this interactive Webinar you will learn how the ‘Crucial ‘C’s’ will TRANSFORM your parenting, your child’s behaviour, as well as building and nurturing your child’s confidence & self esteem. It really will become the Blueprint you will use to raise happy, confident, resilient children from toddler to teen.

Many years ago, research was carried out to discover why some children become ‘successful’ in the broader sense, and others don’t. The findings were very clear regarding those differences: children who succeed have close relationships with others, particularly their immediate family, feel valued in their communities & have a sense of control over some aspects of their lives. While children who are in trouble feel isolated, useless to society and powerless.

The children in trouble are missing four important necessities to manage life’s challenges.

  • They are missing feeling connected to others, whether that is their family or the community
  • They are missing feeling  capable to take care of themselves.
  • They are missing feeling valuable, that they count, that they matter & that they make a difference.
  • They are missing courage.

These four fundamentals are needed for children to feel that they can meet and manage the challenges of life.
