When to Work on Yourself, Not Your Child

parenthood lessons parenting parenting help Apr 19, 2022

When your kid pushes your buttons, should you focus on the kid, or yourself?

This might seem like a strange question. When something causes problems in our lives, we naturally want that something to stop or go away. So, of course, when a kid's behavior is problematic, we want to get that behavior to change.

But this approach almost always backfires in parenting.

Watch this video to learn:

  • How trying to 'fix' behavior actually makes it worse!
  • What approach will actually work (the answer will probably surprise you!)
  • The accidental message your focus on 'fixing' is giving your kiddo.

The tricky thing about this approach is that it puts some slippery and nuanced work solidly on our shoulders, and that's where a coach comes in really handy.

If you're ready to do the work that leads to incredible behavior and relationships in families: radical accountability, parenting from inner wisdom instead of fear, creating space for all possibilities, and being in true partnership with your child - I congratulate you and invite you to walk that road with me by your side.
