You know you are a therapeutic parent...

You know you are a therapeutic parent when you are confronting your son about his stealing, in the midst of the conversation a nugget of truth starts to emerge. Your partner pursues the questioning as he did  not really catch the nugget of truth, you interrupt and take over the questioning while holding on finger up to your husband and say...

Daniel Hughes

He gets where you are going immediately and lets you go there.

Your son admits he was trying to get your attention, he is understands how he could of done it differently and he moves into remorse without rage. Everyone goes to bed and no one is angry at anyone else any longer.

Read Daniel Hughes, it works.

We went to a training today and listened to Robert Spottswood speak about how he uses the training of Daniel Hughes. I had already read on of Hughes books, but to see things from the therapists view is amazing. Remorse without rage...Praise God!
