The Unspoken Topic
- We have a privilege, permission and a deep responsibility to care for our children, so we want to raise them with respect and honor and also respect their freedoms.
What We Cover
- A step-by-step process you can implement in those tough moments of behavior resistance so you can work with your child and support their needs and behaviors.
- How parents can learn with their children and understand it is a practice to attune to them and support their growth.
- Scripts on what to say in those dysregulated moments to help connect with your child.
Take a Listen >>
- Do we do “to” our kids or do we do “with” our kids? As they get older, we need to shift to the “WITH.”
- What we do to our kids is what they are learning. If we use our power to disempower them, they are learning that it’s okay to disempower others.
- We are learning alongside our children. We learn how to set better boundaries. It’s a lifelong practice.
- As we work the RESIST approach rather than the CONTROL approach, your child learns how to use this approach in their interactions with others.
- As parents, we might be in charge of our kids’ bodies, but we do not own them. Our kids’ bodies belong to them. The sooner we respectfully help our child to attune to their needs and experiences, the sooner they can move into their own lives joyously, advocating for their bodies and others.
How to Parent Your Child With Respect and Teach Them To Empathize, Set Boundaries, Communicate and Innovate
- RESIST is a process and conversation that brings your child in.
- Respect. Ask questions.
- Empathize. Kids need to feel seen, heard, connected and validated. Showing them you are side by side with them.
- Sync Up. Explain to them WHY you are asking them what you need.
- Innovate. Invite them to problem-solve with you.
- Summarize. Validate their experience by summarizing what just happened.
- Trust. There are so many opportunities to work with children. This is where so much connection happens. There is always an opportunity to circle back.
