This week’s content:
- Positive parenting is easy when there isn’t a lot of challenge – more challenging when our kids are rubbing up against our triggers
- Toolbox metaphor
Higher our emotion, more likely we use desperate tools (rewards and punishment)
The more tools we put in to toolbox, the more likely it is that the ineffective tools of rewards and punishment slide to the bottom
We can always do better
- Relationship matters!!!!!!
When our relationships are disconnected, navigating behavior in a harsh way isn’t useful for anyone
Fear takes us towards harsh punishment
- Mistakes are opportunities to learn
- There are always consequences
- Inviting out kids into relationship
Can feel uncomfortable
Taking accountability for how the relationship currently is and get vulnerable
Just because it’s hard doesn’t mean we stop being curious with our kids
- Start paying attention to the body
Support ourselves by noticing what is happening inside
We get more access to our toolbox when we are grounded and neutral
At the end of the day what is most useful is your relationship
NOT permission for being a permissive parent – still hold boundaries
Stronger relationship the more likely your child will open up and talk to you
- Creating an environment where our kids can thrive and be a soft landing when they get it wrong
- Shame/blame does not promote accountability and personal responsibility
