• When to Step in and When to Support from the Sidelines

    A mom wants to know how to help her son fix his bully situation. Should she/dad step in? Or is there a way to empower her son to handle it on his own and let them know he won't be a victim? It's often hard to know when we are overstepping and taking away an opportunity for our child to handle situations for themselves and when it's a good idea to step in and guide in a bigger way. I give my feedback on this situation, and talk about bullying on a deeper level, how to talk to kids about it and lessons we can all learn when our kids are faced with some unfortunate life challenges.

  • How I Embraced My Parenting Mistakes & Repaired Connection

    Kids don't need perfect parents. We all make mistakes. We will all act before we think sometimes. It's OK. I messed up this week. I didn't show up as the best version of myself for my daughter when she was looking to me for support. It's a perfect example of how we are all human and have human moments. I share this experience with you and how I re-connected with her after I realized my mistake. Kids don't need perfect parents but they learn so much from how we handle being human.
