I just got the book and haven't finished even reading the first steops part yet, but I am trying to work on the video moments, or whatever you call them where you just comment nuetrally on what they are doing ect....well I did a great job on Friday by myself but found that keeping focused on it when DH was home to be extremely difficult and so by today my momentum was gone and I reverted and forgot all about doing it:( Not beating myself up about it, just realizing how much of a concious effort this will be, but soooo worth it! Part of the reason I lost my focus was that after explaining what I had read to DH and asking him to read up to where I was at so we could both be on the same page ect, he was sort of mocking the approach, comparing to training a dog, or saying stuff like I told you a long time ago to ignore the bad behaviore blablabla, or "do I have to read it?, isn't there a movie or a tape" ect.....and so that killed my positive energy about it as well....to top it all of, first thing in the morning when we were all together in our bed just waking and the girls had invaded us ect....he starts mockingly making the picture moments comments!!! How am I supposed to do this ALONE!!!!! Anyway I know my post is all over teh place...sorry!

Hi Tammy and welcome to the board. You're definitely, not alone and I hope you you'll continue to look through the individual threads, find more hope and ideas as you begin your Nurtured Heart Journey with us.

I'm excited that you want to be a part of the free 4 week NHA series we have starting on Tuesday evening! You'll be getting that password tomorrow in an email.

How about sharing 3 things you love about your intense child(ren)? We'd love to hear a bit more.
