After a year of spending so much (sometimes negative) time with your children, you may feel that your relationship with them isn’t where you want it to be.
But you may not know how to improve things except to “spend more positive time with them”…which you may not have the time or desire to do!
And maybe you’ve even tried to improve your relationship, but your children are resistant.
In this episode, you will learn:
- Why deposits are not about being nice, focusing on the positive, or giving children what they want
- Why children might resist our efforts to spend time in their world
- How to make “micro deposits” — actions that don’t take much time and that will improve the likelihood that your children will actually want more positive moments with you.
