You might not realize it, but as a parent, YOU have a moral obligation to make sure that your child (or children) are NOT annoying.
Why? Because in order for your children to function normally in the world — and to have a healthy, happy life — they need to be able to interact effectively in society.
They can’t do this if they haven’t gained the skills of social interaction. One of the major signs (at any age) that they’re lacking these skills is if they have annoying behavior. If your children are annoying to you, they’re also annoying to others. And that’s a problem.
If a young child develops annoying behavior (we discuss WHY this happens in the episode) they don’t fully understand WHY others find them annoying. And so they grow up knowing that people don’t like them but not understanding why they’re not liked. This is psychologically unhealthy.
If you want your child to be able to develop healthy, long-lasting relationships with others — which is essential for a life of happiness and fulfillment — then they must learn the skills of effective human interaction. And it’s your job as a parent to teach them.
This is not about conforming to social norms and expectations or worrying about what other people think. It’s about developing solid principle-based social leadership skills.
If you have children who have annoying behavior now or might have annoying behavior in the future, then you need to listen to this episode now.
In it, we share specific strategies and principle-based techniques for helping children — and adults — develop healthy self-and-social leadership skills.
If you’ve ever felt the desire to have more influence with your children and their behavior, then you don’t want to miss this!
If you would like tohelp your teen or young adult develop holistically — including developing social skills and reducing annoying behavior — then make sure to register them for our Habits for a Successful Life online class.
Because we recognized that the healthiest and happiest people on the planet are well-rounded in their development — mental, emotional, physical, spiritual, social, and financial — we wanted to ensure that our teens would learn how to develop in each of these areas.
We couldn’t find classes that taught them how to do these things — including developing leadership skills — so we created our own based on our decades of research into peak performance and human development.
That is what the Habits for a Successful Life class is all about. And teens LOVE it. It becomes one of their favorite classes — ever! And it helps them to develop better habits and an understanding of themselves, human psychology, and the ingredients for creating a happy life.
