Here is another conversation that I had with one of the moms in my Mastermind Parenting community. I was doing these live sessions, these live report card sessions, where we were just assessing where you were, where you are, where you’re going. It’s a big part of the process that involves changing behaviors, right? We can’t expect our kids to change their behaviors if we’re not changing our behaviors.
When you have a kid that presents as “strong-willed,” quite often they may just be feeling misunderstood. They also frequently get misdiagnosed. So this mom, she’s here with me in the mastermind community, she says she’s improved in terms of yelling by 90% now. No one ever signs up and says, “I’m a yeller.” There’s so much shame when we yell at our kids and yet we’re human. And when you have a child that you don’t know how to help do better, quite often, you lose your mind too. And so, then you just have like two people sort of losing their minds and it’s just not helpful, right? Like nothing changes.
This mom has gone through our beginning program, basic bootcamp. For those of you who’ve been listening to the podcast for a while, we do have a group enrolling starting in a couple days from when this episode is originally airing. Listen to this episode and learn how this mom’s parenting skills, and her husband’s, have improved so she no longer has to label herself a “yeller!”
As always, thanks for listening, and be sure and head over to Facebook and you can join my free group Mastermind Parenting Community, where we post tips and tools and do pop up Live conversations where I do extra teaching and coaching to support you in helping your strong-willed children so that they can FEEL better and DO better.
