We've tried everything ..
In the follow-up questionnaire they said that they didn't expect to learn much as they'd already tried everything.
And yet they still came. Many parents would not have.
And had they tried everything? I am sure that they had. They were intelligent, well-read and really, really determined to ensure their son ate well. The mother had read every article available and had tried a raft of strategies.
Despite this they were shocked at how much new information they received and how the session empowered them to go away and make changes. And this morning they reported that on Sunday they’d enjoyed 3 meals with their child.
So if they had tried everything what can I add?
1. Structure. I give you the foundations and the framework. You then can slot any strategies into this pattern and have them be effective. Strategies in a vacuum are like houses with bad foundations, you can have the most expensive windows and flooring but it doesn’t make it a good house.
2. I give you a plan. A simple step by step way to get from A to B. Something that tells you HOW.
3. I teach you why things are going wrong and how to change that so things start going “right”. We are all a product of our upbringing and experiences and we create patterns in our parenting. Sometimes it’s simple to see from the outside how small changes to our approach can make a massive difference. That’s what I do – for a living!
I have spent years studying, experimenting and working directly with children who struggle to eat. In one session I can give you enough information to go away and totally change your approach to food. To have plans to implement and strategies that make change simple. It works.
Love to see you at a session because it is a life-changing experience and one that you will walk away from relieved and wishing only that you’d done it sooner. Yes I am that confident and because all my feedback says that I do not communicate the benefits of what I offer effectively and yet I truly can enable you to work magic at the mealtime.
