Eisode #132 Who's in Charge? Collaborative Parenting See Me Hear Me Love Me

    • Kids & Family

This episode is Karen thinking outloud about "who's in charge" and how parents, and grown-ups, walk that balance between guiding-teaching-leading and honoring each child's voice and choice. Here's where I believe we start:
1. Always believe you are on the same side as your child.
2. Connect with your child's need to feel seen-heard-loved.
3. Become the best you can be at understanding what is needed in a particular moment.
4. Learn together what works and what doesn't work for both of you (parent and child), for your family, and for moving forward together.
