Strong Willed kids

It was a wonderful episode and I had my strong willed boy listen to it as well and tell me a bit what he thought. Thank you! Such a deep voice for a 16 year old!! 😂👍🏻

Amber H - Mom of 4 daughters ,

Exactly what I needed as a parent of 4 young kids!

Lisa’s information has been life changing for our family! We have 4 children ranging from ages 9 months - 7 years. I was in tears listening to her episode on getting kids to listen without telling. The tension in our house lately has been so high and none of us have been happy. Our kids are frustrated and so are we. We started using the techniques Lisa suggests and it was been a game changer! Things have gotten much calmer and we are working together with our kids now to accomplish tasks at the house. I love this podcast!!! My husband who does not listen to podcasts has even listened to these. We have a strong willed 3 year old child that has been a challenge for us since she was born. These have helped so much with her too! Thank you Lisa for what you do!!!!

Needed info!

Lisa I love your podcast. It’s such a great refresher for me weekly, and I find myself being so excited for the new one to come out. Your podcast from today with your son Malcolm really hit home. I’m not only raising strong willed girls, but I AM a strong willed girl. Why it never really occurred to me to put that label on for myself, it makes so much sense. My husband is also strong willed. So thank you, for all your insight and help. We will raise our girls in a much more positive light! Thank you!
