Episode 310

Most of us crave more calm in our homes. But what do we do when there is drama on an almost-daily basis and nothing we try makes a difference in our child’s behavior? Is it possible to reduce the drama and feel more confident in our parenting without damaging our relationship with our children? The good news is you can bring more peace to your family while increasing your children’s resilience and self-esteem.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why our current parenting strategies don’t change behavior, moods, or attitudes
  • The differences between Band Aid Parenting and Long Game Parenting
  • What our kids really need from us when they’re struggling (and the long-term benefits of meeting their needs rather than addressing negative behavior with punishments and rewards)
