Show Notes

What holds Parents Back?

DOing things "Right."

There's no right or wrong way from parenting.

SO many different ways. 

"I'm going to try this . . . "

Trust that you are doing things exactly how they should be.

Being afraid of doing it wrong will paralyze you. This leads to disappointment and regret. 

The "Wrong Way" Can Totally Be the "Right Way!"

No matter what, you can turn tough parenting moments into powerful parenting moments.

You don't have to be perfect. 

Just do your best!

Wanting Your Teen To Like You

I don't know if my teen likes me or not. I'm just going to make sure that I like them. 

This will help you make better choices. 

Remind yourself that you've never done this before. 

You can't control whether or not your teen likes you. 

Parenting Ways of Being 

Wanting to BE "Right" will disconnect you with your teen.

BEing the learner will help to connect you. 

My Kid is a Great Kid, AND . . . 

Helps you realize that nothing has gone wrong. 

My teen can fail math, AND they can still be successful. 

My teen can have a messy room, AND it's okay. 

This will help you limit catastrophizing.
