Few of us have extra energy these days. Between trying to get things done and trying to keep kids entertained, off of screens, and not fighting, we are exhausted.

We certainly don’t feel like we have the energy to be consistent. Yet it’s consistency — following through when we tell our kids that we’re going to do something — that actually gives us more energy. Consistency leads to fewer power struggles, fewer meltdowns, and less time spent nagging.

And the best news is that there are simple strategies that make following through even easier — strategies that you can use now (even when you’re currently exhausted) so that you can, ultimately, be less exhausted.  

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why being consistent will help you find MORE time and energy 
  • What you’re teaching your child (that leads to negative behavior) when you’re not consistent
  • Strategies for making it realistic to follow through so your kids take you more seriously
