Episode 224

When we recognize our children’s big behaviors and emotions as a struggle rather than something to be punished, other people may tell us we’re being “too soft” or “too easy” on them. They may say we just need to be firmer and not let them get away with their behavior. So what do we do when we don’t necessarily want to heed others’ advice… but it doesn’t stop coming?

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why you have more power than you think in these situations
  • How to determine what you and your child really need in that moment 
  • What to say to stop invasive parenting advice (without questioning yourself!)
