      I have tried a variety of things to get my three year olds sleep regulated and it seems she is in between needing and not needing a nap. I have tried to get her up earlier, intending to get her to bed earlier, but usually she can’t make it to bedtime. Then if she takes a nap she won’t be ready to sleep til 11 or later! I try not to travel with her in the car afternoons or evenings because she falls asleep. 

 Ideas???  Help???

Okay, I want to begin with a warning.  This is the second in a series of articles on optimism and happiness, and how we can achieve our goals and really live our dreams

However, this article will not appear to be about optimism initially.  Keep reading please, as it is critical to get that this concept of false hope destroys dreams, and undermines any chance of real happiness.  Read More→

I just read a news release that someone is suggesting that “less is more” when it comes to parenting. 

I couldn’t agree more.  In most areas where children get more and more…less is needed.  Read More→

About Dr Cale

During the past 23 years, in working with hundreds of families, I began to realize that many parents, just like you, were showing up in my office well-educated—but getting poor results. They had been to therapy, they had read the books and even attended other training programs—yet their children were still not listening, not doing homework and not cooperating.

I discovered that many of these parents were parenting with false ideas about how to predictable and reliably shape and change their children’s behavior. As a result, I began to develop ideas about the core behavior change principles…and how to turn each of these into specific parenting solutions. As long as I was able to stay true to these principles, the most challenging problems quickly faded away.

My purpose with this program is to give you access to the strategies that come from these core principles. By practicing and following through with the techniques in this program, you will be able to transform any set of negative behavior patterns in your home. Your kids will be happier and more responsible. They will quickly learn to be respectful, cooperative and helpful around the house. Tantrums, whining, complaining and negativity will be a thing of the past.
