“Connection happens with our kids when we can sit in the discomfort of whatever it is they’re feeling and let them talk about that.” – Sheryl Gould
The tween and teen years are tough to live through and tough to parent through.
That’s why I’m so excited to introduce you to Sheryl Gould. She is the founder of ‘Moms of Tweens and Teens.’ It’s a national organization that has created a non-judgmental and compassionate place for tens of thousands of parents to share the struggles and triumphs of raising teens and tweens.
Sheryl is a parenting expert and author of the upcoming book, “You’re Not Crazy, You’re Not a Bad Parent and No, Your Teen Really Doesn’t Hate You.” She connects with parents through her weekly groups, blog, public speaking and interactive parenting workshops.
Sheryl offers so much wisdom in this conversation. We talk a lot about how to make connections with our kids and how strong emotions like anger can help us do this. She gives us great sentences to use to get into these conversations and how to talk to a child struggling. You’ll also hear about creating a safe haven in your home.
