I’ll be honest. Parenting a strong-willed child has brought out the best in me and the worst in me. I never knew I could be so forgiving, so resilient, and so loving. I also never knew I could be so irritable, short-tempered, and angry.
As I have accepted that I am an imperfect parent and that I might not always do what I’m supposed to do, I have wanted to learn if there were some things I should never do. What things I should vow to not do no matter how mad, exhausted, or fed up I am. Which things could do more harm than good.
That’s what today’s episode is all about. This is all evidence-based advice that I feel completely confident in sharing with you today. I hope that you’ll give it a listen as it may make a world of difference for you and your child.
