Podcast Episode 270: Why Connection Works So Much Better Than Correction with Michelle Kenney, M.Ed.

Ever feel like you’re stuck in an endless cycle of punishment and frustration with your kiddos? Our kids challenge us. Whether it’s dishing up what we served when we were their age or a whole new beast to manage, our children are just like us: individuals who are living their truth, their identity, their lives. Incorporating effective parenting strategies can help break this cycle and foster a more harmonious relationship.

So how do we parent in a way that recognizes that? We make the switch from correction to connection. That’s how.

Switching from correction to connection might feel like a big leap, but it’s a game-changer. By using empathy, listening actively, and focusing on building a strong relationship with your child, you’re setting the stage for a happier, more fulfilling parenting journey.

Because it’s not about being a perfect parent—it’s about being a present one.

Our podcast guest Michelle Kenney M.Ed., is the founder and CEO of Peace and Parenting, author of Unpunished, host of the Peace and Parenting Podcast and mom to two teenage girls. She helps parents move away from punishments and into a more connected way to parent all the while using limits and boundaries instead of punishments and consequences to form deep bonded and long lasting relationships.

So let’s flip the script and talk about why connection works so much better than correction.

This episode is the secret sauce we’ve all been searching for!

In this episode of the No Guilt Mom podcast you’ll learn:

  • Why the punishment system of parenting we are so familiar with is ineffective
  • The importance of using empathy as part of your approach to communicating with your child
  • How to handle when rules get broken, things go wrong, and behaviors get wild
  • That communicating with your child in order to connect, rather than connect, can make or break your relationship
