Episode 256

It’s natural to assume that if things are bad now, they always will be – that if our child hates doing homework now, they will always have a hard time with anything difficult (including keeping a job in the future!). But even if those fears make sense, they tend to make situations worse.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why almost all of us focus on the bad things that might happen in the future 
  • What happens in our children’s brains when we use a negative approach to motivate them 
  • How we can use Long Game strategies to teach our children how to create a more successful future
