Teaching children RESPECT in 3 steps with Racheal Kwacz
I’m not gonna lie, I’m totally a google mom! So I’d been dabbling in my way of Respectful Parenting here and there.
-respecting the child
-empowering the child
Sometimes, it just. doesn’t. work! It was like I woke up one day and my 6 yr old became 16! Her language, her attitude, her talkbacks etc This got me wondering – what did I do wrong? . Am I too soft? Should I have been more stern? Was what I thought was mindful parenting actually opening a door for her to further bully her mother? . Everyone has something to say about what I did wrong. But whoever said any parent’s perfect, right? Aren’t we all learning as we go along? . Lately Chloe had been a little more than out of order – partly MCO? Who wouldn’t go a little nuts being stuck with their mother for more than 90 days right? . So what do I do? I DM Child and Family Development Specialist Rachel Kwacz and lay it all on her! AND asked her for 3 hacks to “fix” this.
Let’s talk about connection before correction.
So here we are, 1st episode of many, I hope, respectful mindful parenting with Racheal Kwacz and Serena (mostly Racheal of course 😉 3 hacks to get your 6 yr old going on 16 to RESPECT you! 1.
