Especially when we’re not in a good place as parents, it’s hard not to take it personally when kids say “I hate you” or “You never give me anything I want!”

And when we do take it personally, the situation often goes downhill.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why statements that seem to be about you actually aren’t about you
  • A simple question you can ask that will help you take those statements less personally
  • Why NOT taking their statements personally is not the same thing as condoning disrespectful behavior
