I really enjoyed the sessions and these changed a lot of what I did before….. I shouted, I didn’t listen to my children and there was a lot wrong in our house. My son refused to do his homework. Now I am less stressed, my son does his homework on time, my daughter plays with her brother which never happened before. I am so proud of what we have achieved and so happy.
My children are 6 and 8 so I have also had some problems with sibling rivalry, but Parent Gym has helped me to make a discipline system, so that they always know what will happen when they fight. I now also make sure that I spend a specific amount of alone time with each child, so that they both feel important and it has really helped to stop with their fighting and make the house a much calmer place.
Getting my kids to eat vegetables had always been a struggle, but I learnt to be more persistent with things than I had been before. Usually if my son didn't like something, I just wouldn't give it to him but I got the idea of consistently putting it on his plate every meal time and eventually it worked. He realised that vegetables are not all bad and is now happily eating carrots!
