• Obedience vs. Genuine Respect: You Can’t Have Both

    When we punish and discipline our children, are we truly teaching them respect, or are we inadvertently instilling fear? We have been conditioned to believe that respect is synonymous with obedience. But is that really what respect is all about? Today, I want to challenge this conventional thinking and urge you to reconsider your parenting approach. 


    From my own experience as a parent, I have realized that respect cannot be forced upon our children. It is something that is earned through genuine connection, kindness, and empathy. While punishments and rewards may seem effective in the short term, they do not necessarily foster respect. Join me as we explore the complexities of respect in parenting and discover how nurturing genuine connections can lead to organic respect from our children.


    In this Episode:

    • Rethinking respect beyond obedience and fear

    • Earning respect through genuine connection and empathy

    • How punishments and rewards hinder organic respect

    • How mutual respect fosters healthier parent-child relationships

    • Nurturing respect: The keys to peaceful parenting

  • Case Study: Can You Really Discipline With Love Instead of Fear

    Could your pursuit of a "perfectly" behaved child be disrupting the peace in your home? This episode will unravel the intricate dance between setting boundaries and forging bonds of connection.


    As parents, we tend to focus on controlling our children's behavior and enforcing consequences when they make mistakes. However, what really matters is creating an environment where our children feel safe to make mistakes without fear. By showing empathy toward our children's behavior, we can establish a foundation of trust that is unbreakable. 


    Today, I have invited Shauna, one of my Instagram followers, to share how loosening the reins of strict parenting has allowed her to build more authentic relationships with her children. We will discuss how to set boundaries without resorting to punishment, but rather through the warmth of connection. You will learn how to turn homework time into a fun activity and how to handle difficult school transitions with compassion. These methods have the potential to transform challenges into opportunities for growth.

  • I Want My Kids to Thank Me

    As parents, we put a lot of effort and care into raising our children. However, have you ever felt like you crave recognition for your hard work? As I look back on my own journey as a parent, I've realized that the validation we seek doesn't necessarily have to come from our children. Instead, it should come from within ourselves. Today, I encourage you to think about your own search for validation in parenting. Let's explore together how we can re-parent ourselves, break free from outdated norms, and acknowledge our own personal growth.

  • The Productivity Trap: Prioritizing Connection Over Productivity

    Is your relentless focus on productivity sending the message to your child that self-care is secondary to achievement? Today, we delve deep into the subtle dynamics of threats, bribes, and the elusive quest for productivity.


    In a society that glorifies busyness and achievement, it's easy to fall into the trap of believing that success lies in crossing off tasks from our to-do lists. But what if I told you there's a more authentic way to foster cooperation and harmony within our families?  For me, it all happened when I started prioritizing connection over control. From starting the day with play and offering choices to modeling self-care, each step we take towards building genuine relationships with our children can lead to a more fulfilling parenting journey.

From the moment they step into the classroom to the final bell, our children navigate a complex world of expectations, relationships, and emotions.

  • Trust the Process: It Gets Worse Before It Gets Better

    Have you ever felt that no matter how much you try to connect with your child, it seems to get more challenging? As a parent, I understand how frustrating it can be to invest time and effort into connective parenting only to face unexpected hurdles. But don't worry, I'm here to tell you you're not alone. 


    Based on my extensive experience coaching parents and witnessing countless family dynamics, I understand why transitions to connective parenting can stir up resistance and intensify behavioral struggles. But setbacks and challenges are okay. Embrace the process, support your child and yourself, and stay committed to building authentic relationships to transform your family dynamic.

  • Do You Have a Listening Partner Yet?

    Do you ever feel like you're on an emotional rollercoaster as a parent? It's normal to feel this way, but finding ways to keep your emotional balance is important. Today on Peace and Parenting, I discuss the importance of a listening partner. This means having someone you can talk to and share your feelings with when you're feeling overwhelmed.


    But listening partnerships are not just about venting. They're about finding ways to improve our emotional well-being and build a healthier relationship with our children. Whether we're dealing with life's challenges or simply trying to find inner peace amidst chaos, these partnerships can make a huge difference for every parent out there.

  • 8 Phrases You Shouldn’t Say to an Upset Child

    Have you ever considered how your words might affect your child's emotional well-being during moments of distress?

  • 7 Things Connected Parents DON’T Do

    Many parents often ask me for advice on how to help their children become more resilient and self-reliant. However, today, I am going to share a few things that parents should avoid doing to help their children thrive in the face of adversity. These include not rushing to their children's rescue when facing frustration and not dismissing their children's emotions. By adopting a nurturing approach that balances support and autonomy, connected parents can encourage their children's self-reliance and responsibility. In this way, we can help our children develop resilience from within.

  • Preparing Our Children for the Real World

    Have you ever wondered if our loving and nurturing parenting style prepares our kids for the harsh realities of the real world? Well, let's dive into this important discussion today as I explore a fascinating question from a concerned dad: How does our parenting method equip our children to face a world that might not be as gentle as our homes?


    From the very first moments of life, our children start understanding the real world – from a hospital delivery room to preschool dramas and adolescent struggles. Our goal isn't to mirror the harshness of the outside world in our relationships with our children but rather to create a loving and sacred space where they feel safe to share their ups and downs. Join me as I unravel a key strategy for building resilience: empathy. Discover how providing a safe haven at home, where feelings are validated and understood, helps our children navigate life's challenges.
