Picture Perfect Parenting provides parents of pre-teens this opportunity in an Phone App. By accessing the Picture Perfect Parenting Application, you receive immediate access to your Phones camera to quickly catch your child in the act. As a parent, you want to encourage positive behaviors through praise and attention; minimizing attention to negative behavior. Wherever the photo is taken, you will have an immediate impact on your child. The act of taking the photo acknowledges the behavior good or bad. Observing your action will have an immediate impact on your child. Your child will reflect on your action to think about their behavior.
Once home, you can print this photo. Since good behavior receives praise, you may choose from a variety of frames praising the behavior. With negative behavior, the photo is printed with a frame but without comment. Children love attention! If you get hooked emotionally and react to negative behavior, it actually encourages it. With Picture Perfect Parenting, you will provide a visual reminder of negative behavior but allow your child time for self-reflection. Your child does not want to be bad, he just does not understand a better way to manage feelings. Observing their own behavior will help them develop change.
