Is Punishment Revenge

Yep, I said it, and I believe it. Punishment is revenge in a very real way. We don’t punish children for any other reason except we want them to “pay” for what they did. It’s not our fault, as our parents did the same thing. If we look at our own childhood we can remember what it felt like and how punitive and unkind it came across. Is this what we want for our kids?

Instilling Gratitude

How do we teach our children gratitude? Is it through direct instruction or lessons on being grateful? Do we point out all the things in their lives that they should be grateful for, or make them regurgitate things they are grateful for at the Thanksgiving Table? What is being grateful anyway and how do we show our children we are grateful for them? Have a listen and maybe gain a different perspective.

The New Apology: Making Amends

I’m sorry might not be enough! It may not convey the real message that we both want to express when we feel remorse and we want our children to also express when they feel true remorse. Let me help you cultivate a more dynamic and heartfelt apology that feels better and is undoubtedly more helpful.

Giving Responsibilities to Our Children

Bedtime, bathtime, and homework become very sticky places at times between us and our children. We often struggle here where maybe we don’t need to. Isn’t the goal to have self-sufficient kids who know how to take care of themselves? But how will they learn when they feel hungry, tired, or dirty if we are constantly micromanaging these chores?

Is It Too Late to Change The Way I Parent

Is it too late? This is a question parents ask often about changing the way in which they parent. Am I too late? Can I make a difference with an older child and what can I do to cultivate a relationship with an adult kid? I answer these questions and touch on the idea of manners as I talk with my lovely guest Jennifer, a mother of three kids. 

 

Working with individuals and couples is my most favorite work. We dive deeply into the ideas of connection and unravel the struggles of each individual family I work with. It’s a transformational paradigm shift each and every time. I have seen families undergo huge changes that forever impact their relationships. My One on One programs have limited space, so if you're interested click here to find out more. I look forward to working with you.

Is Focusing on School and Sports Success Important

When we place emphasis on succeeding in sports or activities are we doing our child a disservice? Isn’t the point of sports and extracurricular activities to have fun and enjoy? What about school? Aren’t we there really to learn, to socialize? When the pressures become too great they can have a negative impact on our children.

What to Do When Our Child Says No

Cooperation is the number one complaint I hear from parents. What do we do if they do not do as I ask? How do I get the to say yes and what do I do when they say no? We use connection, but how. Listen in as I give you some pointers and if you want to you can take my course Guide to Cooperation to learn all the tools of connection along with the ins and outs of cooperation and hearing they ever coveted yes!

 

Here's another episode I did about transitioning out of the house with kids...
