Casey is on solo with you today digging into what it means to trust the process in the context of parenting, Positive Discipline, and leaning on our relationship as the most powerful way to influence our kids behavior.
What does this mean?
- Hitting stage
- Homework stage
The relationships/ life skill development journey
When we are stuck in a place with our kids it is easy to believe that it will “always be like this”
- Change happens over time
- If we want something to be different we have to BE different
The dance we do with our kids has explicit steps, well choreographed over time
All it take is one person to change the dance (YOU)
What it means to be in an honest open relationship with your children
- What can feel like the dark side
- Curiosity and stalling when you don’t know what to do
- Notice your fear and let it guide you to pausing
- Gather your resources
- Listen to your gut
How to voice concerns without blaming or condemning (thermometer activity)
- Encouraging vs discouraging out kids
When they are discouraged by OUR behavior they shift OUT OF taking responsibility or even thinking about their own behavior
