Quotes:

“I think our entire culture has this mental block when it comes to crying."

“I came across this different way of listening to the emotions. It’s reframing the way we view tears. It’s about listening and allowing the feelings."

“Children need safety to let go of feelings."

What does Joyful Courage mean to you?

“I would say parenting is really really hard work. Sometimes we make mistakes and it may seem really hard to get up the next day and embrace it as a fresh day.  We should have the Joyful Courage to embrace the challenges of parenting”.

Eps 85: Free Range Parenting with Kim Estes

Today’s guest is Kim Estes, a speaker and coach who talks to parents of kids from pre-school to adolescents about safety concerns. We are discussing free-range parenting. Join us!

“Our kids are wanting to explore their world and it’s our job to teach them to do it safely.”  

What you’ll hear in this episode:

  • Misconceptions about free-range parenting

  • Boundaries in free-range parenting: subject to change based on individual children and age-level

  • Assessing age and individual capacity specific boundaries – the value of checking in for safety

  • Free-range parenting as giving kids space to practice intuition

  • Fear of judgment and free-range parenting

  • Risk assessment and safety – likelihood of concerns relating to traffic safety and abduction

  • Assessing risk tolerance as parents

  • Stranger safety vs Stranger danger

  • Free-range parenting as freedom within structure

  • Finding the happy medium: learning new skills with appropriate boundaries

  • Being consistent about expectations and boundaries

  • Mistakes as learning experiences – handling situations where things don’t go as planned

  • Being available and non-judgmental when negotiating boundaries – dropping into curiosity to keep communication lines open

  • No questions asked, do-overs on both sides and owning failure

  • Exercising self-compassion and forgiveness when you don’t realize you’re being called to “the big show”

What does Joyful Courage mean to you?

Joyful courage means to me to be able to parent courageously even if it’s uncomfortable, but at the end of the day, having something that feels good for everybody even if it’s the smallest success.

Episode Six: The Safety Talk with Kim Estes

Kim Estes is AWESOME!  I had such a fun time interviewing here...  She is straight to the point while also being light and real.  I learned a ton throughout our conversation, I bet you will too!!


Intro with Family – two daughters, middle/high schoolers

Savvy Parents Safe Kids - www.savvyparentssafekids.com

Patty Fitzgerald - Safety Ever After

Lots of strategies…  not just “this is what you do in the moment”

Being home alone… 2 tips:

  1. Don't open the door, acknowledge the door –
    In a strong voice: “Who is it?” followed by, “I can’t help you…” and walk away.

  2. Know what to do if there is a fire –
    Get out of the house and use a neighbors phone to call 911

Practice!!

Talking about having an “out” for sticky situations…  Teach your kids language to use and practice the language…

  • Free range in the world is safer than free range online.

  • The internet is a place, not a thing….

  • Safety radar isn’t quite as tuned in….
