We want our kids to listen to us and do what they’re supposed to do, but often the way we try to teach them how to act responsible negatively affects our influence and our relationship.

In this episode, you’ll learn a simple formula for how to be both firm AND respectful so that your children are more likely to do what you ask them to do…and internalize the lessons that you’re trying to teach.

In this episode, you will learn: 

  • Why the way we usually approach our children leads to less cooperation, not more 
  • A simple formula for how to be both firm AND respectful to improve your influence and your relationship
