Improve Your Influence and Your Kids' Motivation By Showing Them They Matter

11/7/2019
More
We want our kids to act responsible and make healthy choices. Often, when they act irresponsible or disrespectful, we try to “make” them change their behavior by telling them that how awful they're acting or yelling at them or punishing them… which doesn’t tend to lead to better behavior. Instead, we can increase our influence AND foster internal motivation when we show them — not just tell them! — that they matter. While this strategy may not be intuitive, it is not complicated… and it is...

Episode 9: Give Kids What They Need, Not What They Want

10/31/2019
More
When we see our kids feeling bad, or when we sense that our relationship isn’t at its strongest, often we attempt to repair things by being “nicer” to our kids. We give in to them more, we do more for them, we buy them things and take them places. Interestingly, these nice gestures may not lead to the positive results that we hope for… which makes feel resentful and frustrated. Instead, we can use a very simple long-game simple strategy to improve kids’ moods AND our relationship at a deeper...

Episode 8: When You Can't Get Your Kids to Clean (Or Do Other "Boring" Things)

10/24/2019
More
It seems that almost every day kids resist us when we ask them to do the things that have to get done -- brushing their teeth, getting dressed, eating meals, doing homework, getting ready for bed. And often the daily resistance leads to a negativity in our homes and in our relationships. Fortunately, it is possible to teach kids and teens how to do the “boring” everyday tasks in a way that actually strengthens our relationship AND their resilience. Learn the long-game strategy for teaching...

Episode 6: When You Feel Like You Don't Like Your Child

10/10/2019
More
Sometimes we have days where we are dealing with so much from our kids that we just don’t like them. In those situations, we usually try whatever we can think of to get them to change. But they don’t, and then we become even more frustrated and resentful. Fortunately, there is another simple shift that we can make that alleviates so many of those negative feelings towards our kids. Even better, this “long-game” strategy is more likely to motivate your children to make changes on their own,...

Episode 5: How to Stay in Control, Even When You're Stressed

10/3/2019
More
If we’re being honest with ourselves, we can admit that how we respond to our kids has more to do with how WE'RE doing than what our kids are doing. (When we’re in a good place, we can be calm and patient. When we’re stressed or overwhelmed or tired, calmness and patience go out the window.) And unfortunately, when we respond from a place of our own Yuck, we do things we regret -- AND we lose our influence over our kids. That’s why, if we want to raise more responsible, resilient kids, we...

Hearing the word “no” from our child when we ask them to do something -- or any other type of defiance or disrespect -- can send us into a rage! Unfortunately when we lose our cool, we also tend to lose our influence over our kids. It is possible to stay in control of ourselves even when our kids are being disrespectful so that we can address their behavior more effectively. Learn the step-by-step, long-game strategy for not letting your kids’ reactions control yours.

Episode 3: How To Show Your Kids You Mean What You Say

9/24/2019
More
In many cases, our kids don’t listen or do what they’re supposed to do until the third or fourth time we ask… or until we yell or threaten to take away something they care about. However, it is possible to teach kids that they need to listen the first time we ask them to do something. To improve our influence, we have to show kids that we mean what we say. Learn the step-by-step, long-game strategy for showing them that they need to take you seriously.
