In this episode, I share my view on why we lecture and what to do instead. Lectures do NOT teach our kids the valuable life lessons we want to teach them. In fact, lecturing often reinforcing the behavior we wish to eliminate while also damaging our relationships. I have an approach that will teach you how to infuse empathy into your conversations so that they are actually effective, connecting and ultimately, PRODUCTIVE.
This is truly the best advanced tool that I teach. I completely teach you how it looks in real life in this podcast episode. This is the tool that my parenting programs lead up to…being able to master empathy to transform the convos in your home and create the family team you crave!
