Ep 72: Headstrong Children – How to Manage Them

When we have a child who seems hellbent on arguing with everything we ask of them, making up their own rules, and struggling to manage their emotions – it can leave its mark on all of us.

We often feel like we’re parenting in a war zone and then feel guilty and sad with how we’ve handled things. There isn’t a magic wand approach which will change everything, yet my seven strategies could just save your sanity and relationship with your child, without breaking their spirit.

 

Here are the highlights:

(00:41) There’s no quick fix

(05:45) Reframing the situation

(10:51) Give your children control within set parameters

(17:36) Experiential learning

(22:54) You cannot over-communicate with a headstrong child
