Episode 275

Many children with big emotions struggle to express what they need. Some tend to demand that things go their way…while others rarely stand up for themselves. How can we teach our children to ask for what they need without offending others or letting others walk all over them?

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why we need to identify what’s causing our children’s behavior before we try to change it
  • The scientific reasons why a child might struggle to be assertive (and why our pushing usually makes things worse)
  • How to teach important life skills — like standing up for themselves respectfully — without harming their self-esteem or our parent-child relationship
