Toobox 29

Just a quick note to let you know that Post Parenting Toolbox 29 hit the streets this week. Here is a piece of it, and there is lots more about what is new at the Post Institute and what we have in store for you in 2013. It's Simple Really - Less is More...

I received a note from a caseworker that shows just how simple this love based model is and I felt I had to share it with you. Many of our parents wonder where to start. Wherever they are at any moment is a good place. Here is a simple clue.

She wrote saying "I had a mother call me telling me that her 7 year old daughter was "freakin out, throwing one of her fits".....Mom had put child in her room and closed the door and I could hear the child screaming at the top of her lungs and either hitting the door or throwing things at the door......I told the mother to go into the child's room and just sit on the bed and stare at the floor. Within 30 seconds that child was calmed down, not completely but about 45 seconds that child was not screaming or talking loud at all and within a minute of that the child and the mother were talking about getting dinner ready". How simple is that? (Ed. note: For more of where to start, read Kirk Martin's (founder of Celebrate Calm) advice telling parents to Just Shut Up!

With all the email, e-Newsletters, Facebook messages, Tweets and Mobile text messages you get, we thought we would try to do things a bit differently. We will be experimenting for awhile with designs so please hand with us during our re-construction time. We know you want help for your family. You want it short and sweet, and you want it now. We will try to give you expert advice, timely news and information in bite sized pieces. We will as always also offer you such things as videos, audio recordings and links that you can take advantage of at your own pace. We are here for you and because of you. So, what do you need, what you want (and don't want) and how you would like it? Just like "if mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy", if the parents ain't happy, Bryan Post ain't happy". So please let us know. Get Happy! You can reach me at

Also included is Bryan’s recent Q&A recording about school issues that two moms are facing, a revision of the How to End Lying is coming up and we’d like to hear from you. Included is a short video that Bryan did on Lying. To view the Toolbox click here:
