Episode 278

Children with big emotions often want to be in charge. They try to control the schedule, their siblings, and even us! But trying to take away control leads to power struggles… and giving them MORE control doesn’t lead to better behavior. The good news is that there is a way to motivate our children to be more flexible and responsible without taking away all of their control or giving them too much of it.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • What leads to better behavior with kids who like to be in control 
  • How to easily find the right balance between permissiveness and firmness 
  • What our kids really need from us so that they can develop confidence, internal motivation, and a better parent-child relationship
