Power struggles are pretty common in parenting. Sometimes as parents we even create them. Huh? How can you avoid power struggles with your children? In our monthly specail epsiode we talk about helpful strategies eliminate or avoid power struggles.
This is our monthly special episode where I co-host the show with another colleague. For now, I have a Mystery Seat for each month and I invite passionate coaches or parent educators to host the show with me. This should be fun.
For the monthly special episodes the show has a different format.
We have 4 segments.
Examples from Our Home
What’s Up with You? Answering listener parenting questions
In the first segment I tell a story that happens very commonly in many households. My daughter one morning before going to school stated that she didn’t have shoes. How did I answer? Did I avoid power struggles successfully, was I able to listen and validate? Listen to find out. The same day I received a call from a client who said that his son woke up and said, “I do not want to go to school…”
Laura has two daughters: a 2,5 year old one and a 5 year old one. She shares a sibling rivalry story.
For this month Laura Froyen, PhD takes the mystery seat.
