Podcast Episode 196: You are Not a Pushover

Hearing the word pushover to describe someone’s parenting really riles us up! No one wants to be called a pushover as a parent. But all too often we hear that word being thrown around at parents who choose not to use punishments in their approach to discipline.

Here’s the thing: punishments are not effective.

If you’ve never heard this before, you’re probably thinking, these women sound crazy. But what if there was a way to implement consistent consequences that are rational and realistic for your children, teaching them life skills instead of just punishing them?

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

  • The contrast between authoritarian and authoritative parenting.
  • The benefits of authoritative parenting, which involve being a master guide while valuing children’s opinions and emotions and creating a supportive environment for open communication.
  • The significance of allowing children to express their emotions without punishment or shame, emphasizing the importance of emotional release and validation.
  • How to focus on the underlying reasons behind misbehavior instead of merely using consequences as a solution.
  • Ways to give children time to learn and practice new skills, allowing for a learning curve and understanding that perfection is not expected.
