Episode 251

We all want to be a positive influence on our kids: We want them to listen to us…we want to be able to calm them down when they’re struggling…we want them to internalize the values we’ve taught them. But sometimes we’re not aware that the biggest obstacle to our influence is our own Yuck!

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • How our Yuck reduces our influence, from a scientific perspective 
  • What we should REALLY focus on (instead of controlling our kids) if we want them to see us as an authority figure 
  • How a our positive influence can lead to healthier self-esteem and a stronger relationship
