    [E192] Myths Pt. 1: Connected Parenting Doesn't Work for Teens

    You may believe that this approach is for little kids, or you may know someone else who thinks that way! Today we are joined by the Davaults, who share their extensive experiencing of walking alongside teens for years in different contexts! They are here to debunk the myth that this approach is only for the littles! Listen for wisdom and practical insights on how we can use Connected Parenting principles to lovingly walk alongside our teens as they grow in independence and autonomy.

    How do you know when your stress capacity is running low? What can you to about it?? What “fills your tires” as you navigate “life’s potholes”? We'll get into that and more on today's episode.

Essential Companion for Connected Parenting!

When I’m struggling to stay connected and present with my kids, I spend 30 minutes on a walk or doing house work with this podcast. THANK YOU to the Empowered to Connect team for keeping me connected to the principles I value most in parenting and reminding me it’s ok to mess up- and how best to repair! My 7-year old recently described MFCC as “a place where parents go to understand what kids need.” So beautiful and so true! We are so thankful for the work of MFCC, Empowered to Connect, and this podcast!

Love it!

Love the podcast. Can you explain your connection to TBRI? I’m a little confused. Also I’m from Memphis and would love to know where you are there.

Fantastic

I am not an adoptive parent, but I think that this show appeals to all parents trying to figure it out. Plus, you have got to love the smooth radio voice of Mr. JD Wilson!
