Mindful Parenting member Katie has been working on skillful responses to her three-year-old, but her husband disagrees with her responses. He is worried that without “consequences” their child won’t have any disincentive to stop the bad behavior. What do they do? 
In this special on-air coaching session, Hunter talks Katie through how to respond to these difficult situations—with her child and her partner!


1. Children’s nervous system stress response drives them to kick and hit

2. Punishment causes resentment and erodes connection and cooperation

3. We are modeling and teaching with all of our responses
