In episode 234 of the podcast we discuss their RESIST Approach– a flexible framework that encourages parents to welcome their kids’ resistance as they resist conventional discipline practices that perpetuate control and undermine connection.
We discuss how working to RESPECT, EMPATHIZE, SYNCH UP, INNOVATE, SUMMARIZE AND TRUST as often as possible with our kids can raise our family and build our future, one conversation at a time.
The WAY we teach our children is what they ultimately learn.
Conventional wisdom and patriarchal conditioning can so easily lead us to respond to daily challenges with our kids using measures of control.
We lecture, shame, micromanage, yell, isolate, offer rewards or threaten punishments… We often find ourselves behaving in ways that can show our children that it is acceptable to disempower and disrespect someone with less power or privilege.
