We all want to be the best parent we possibly can. But it’s not always that easy. Reality and what we envisioned hardly ever line up.
Why do our kids sometimes act up so much? What can we do to stop unwanted behaviors? How can we as parents get closer to the parent we always wanted to be to our children?
We are joined today by Tina Payne Bryson, Ph.D. She’s a mom of 3 boys, an LCSW, New York Times best-selling author of several books, the Founder and Executive Director of The Center for Connection, a multidisciplinary clinical practice in Southern California, and frequently consults with schools, businesses, and other organizations on parenting helping parents everywhere raise children who are happy, healthy and fully themselves.
We discuss what the misbehaviors really are caused by, and what we can do to stop those behaviors and teach our children better.
