(Click title to listen)PODCAST SCRIPT:
Ever had that awful moment… when you bark out a command at your kids… and realize you sound just like your parents?
No matter how much we vow to parent differently than our mom and dad… we tend to perpetuate their style. But the world is different these days. Things have changed since we were kids. And parents… we need to change with the times.
You and I need to move from controlling… to coaching… without surrendering our core values. We need to meet our kids at their level… and respect their individuality.
Parents who dig in their heels and don’t adjust… tend to push their teens away.
So shake off the negative habits of generational parenting. It’s a new day. Shake up the family tree… and adjust to meet the needs of your family!
