A. Most children have problems — or at the very least, “doubts” — so my answer is yes.
Some parents say, But my child doesn’t have any problems, however children often don’t share their problems with others, especially not their parents.
I know I didn’t share my problems with my parents and I think many children today are the same. Also, one of the bonuses for a family in applying this method is the education that the parents gain about the use of positive language.
The down line ramifications that occur within a family unit can be quite profound as parents use more encouraging and constructive language and reduce the hurtful or negative comments they have been unconsciously making.
