“We need our kids to actually solve those problems of life and to deal with the things that need to happen as opposed to always turning to us and expecting us to reward them.” – Katherine Reynolds Lewis
Today you’ll hear from Katherine Reynolds Lewis, the author of the new book, “The Good News About Bad Behavior: Why Kids are Less Disciplined than Ever – and What To Do About It.”
She’s appeared on several publications including CNN, NPR and The New York Times and The Washington Post Magazine.
In this episode we talk:
– skyrocketing number of mental health issues and suicides in our children (and how your parenting can help fight this!)
– teaching your child to be capable and to contribute
– communicating privileges and consequences (tips that are getting my toddler to bed in 30 minutes instead of 4 hours!)
This episode is one of my favorites (I always say that) and is packed full with so much tangible advice to bring into your own parenting. You can listen to it on this webpage by pressing the ‘play’ button at the top of the page or on your iPhone.
