#041 Friday Fix – 13 Things Mentally Strong Parents Don’t Do
- Are you struggling to raise mentally strong kids right now?
- Do you worry that your kids won’t have the emotional skills they need to succeed in life?
- Are you concerned that some of your parenting habits might be setting a bad example for your kids?
If you answered yes to any of those questions, you’re going to want to tune in to this episode. I’m sharing how to give up the unhealthy yet common parenting habits that are draining kids of the mental strength they need to reach their greatest potential.
As a psychotherapist and a foster parent, I’ve seen firsthand how parenting habits directly affect the way kids think, feel, and behave. And while you might have a zillion healthy parenting habits you do already, you might also have a few unhealthy habits that could use a little tweaking–and you might not even recognize that they’re doing them.
A few little changes could make a big difference to your child’s overall wellbeing.
That’s why I wrote the book, 13 Things Mentally Strong Parents Don’t Do, in the first place. Readers of my first book, 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do, kept asking me how to raise mentally strong kids.
So this book teaches parents how to become mental strength coaches for their kids. And in this episode, I share those 13 things and give some tips on how you can recognize and avoid those habits.
And don’t feel bad, all parents do these things sometimes! But when you learn to be on the lookout for them, you can give them up and help your kids develop bigger mental muscles.
