Watch my free discipline workshop today for more clarity, connection and cooperation
A place where I discuss all things related to toddlers and motherhood!
As a clinical psychologist, published author, and mother to two cheeky young children, I get it. I’ve spent YEARS researching and filtering through the noise online, so you don’t have to.
In parenting, we tend to fall back on phrases when talking with our kids. We often use the same phrases over and over again.
Some of these phrases work and others, not so much. It’s so important to reflect on the language we use, especially if our goal is to elicit more cooperation and help our kids make good choices.
In today’s episode, I’ll share 6 common parenting phrases to stop using.
For each phrase, I’ll break down:
-Why do we say these things in the first place so we can better understand ourselves
-Why do these phrases tend to backfire on us (and elicit more challenging behavior from our kids)
-Most importantly, what to say instead & why it works better
