Jul 8, 2022

Most parents are stuck in a “prison”. I’ve called it the “Parenting Prison”. In this episode, I’m going to tell you what the Parenting Prison is, and how to get out of it. I’ll also touch on repeating familial cycles of parenting. We often parent the way we were parented (or the opposite)! I’ll briefly go over several common parenting styles, and why they are all ineffective. And finally I’ll discuss the #1 reason parenting responses are ineffective, and what you can do about it.
