Episode 245

When our kids are in Yuck, we want them to deal with their discomfort in healthy ways instead of being disrespectful, blaming others, or shutting down. However, when we try to get them to find more effective ways, they refuse to even talk about possible strategies, let alone using those strategies.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • The science behind most kids’ resistance 
  • Why encouraging kids to talk about coping skills will make them shut down more
  • A long-game strategy to motivate THEM to want to find strategies that work
