Your Perfect Child
Diana Boggia has a masters degree in education with licensure in preschool, elementary and special education. She taught children with multiple disabilities for 15 years and has been working with parents (families) with behavioral concerns for more than 23 years. She develops individualized strategies to build self esteem and diminish negative, attention-seeking behaviors for each child to be successful in achieving remarkable results. Throughout her work with parents Diana has developed a program that includes hands-on materials encompassing limit-setting, developing structure with schedules, teaching time management, increasing listening skills and parenting with incentives, rather than threats. These successful strategies have changed the dynamics of many families who were struggling with their child¹s behaviors.

Teens most always talk a good game, and they are masters at layering on the guilt. “But everyone else’s parents let them do it!” is a common phrase heard by most every parent. Keep the faith! Don’t give in, don’t negotiate, don’t yell, and don’t give up! Hold the line with your family values and make it your mission to keep your teen safe. There are many ways to connect and communicate your family values as well as the consequences for unmet expectations. Make a date with your teen, sending a message of importance, while reviewing House Rules and family values. Read the full article, “Investing in teen safety”, which offers several ways to connect with and protect your teen at parties, on the road and at home. Enjoy a safe and healthy new year!
