Activate Your P.G.S. – Your Parental Guidance System!
Posted on March 5, 2012
You know that the addition of our first child brings the title of “parent,” but did you know that this title is accompanied by a natural installation of a P.G.S – Parental Guidance System?
I believe our PGS is like a car GPS. If used to our advantage, it helps take the edge off; it helps us be more confident about the journey and less anxious about finding the destination.
Our PGS can guide us to be Happy Relaxed Parents and to Raise Kids to Be Happy, Think Positive and Do Good!
Here are some FAQ’s from our Happy Relaxed Parenting classes that will help put this in perspective:
Q. What exactly is a PGS, or Parental Guidance System?
A. PGS is our conscious parenting guidance and communication system — our innate ability to protect, direct and connect with our children by being aware of:
- How we speak and behave with our kids.
- How that affects our kids and our relationship with them.
Q. Why is it important to activate our PGS, or Parental Guidance System?
A. By activating and keeping our PGS active we can:
- Build lasting communication habits and trust with our kids.
- Be Happy Relaxed Parents and Raise Kids to Be Happy, Think Positive and Do Good.
Q. How can I activate my PGS, or Parental Guidance System?
A. That is what we are here for!
Our TOGs (Tools of Growth) will help you activate and keep your PGS active:
- By honoring and understanding your own parenting personality or style of teaching your kids.
- By honoring and understanding your child’s personality and their style of learning.
- By honoring and understanding the different growth phases that both go through so that you can learn and grow together.
