Maybe you’ve heard it before, especially if you have a daughter…
“Wait until she’s a teenager!”
Good news! According to today’s podcast guest, Dr. John Duffy, it’s JUST. NOT. TRUE. (Yay! Bust out the pom-poms!)
Some big takeaways from this episode include:
1. When we think about teenagers, there’s a myth that it’s going to be awful. It’s just not true. Parenting mindfully, John never had the negative moment that parents think are inevitable.
2. What’s wrong with punishment and why natural consequences puts you in a more-powerful “ally” position.
3. John’s personal story of why expectations of perfection don’t work, and how we must put our fear, judgement, and ego aside and really connect
