THE HARD STUFF IS THE GOOD STUFF. That means the most challenging experiences we have with our kids aren’t actually obstacles to our goal for raising wonderful humans -- they have inherent meaning, value and reward!
In this episode we discuss:
· Why our children’s challenging behaviors make us so uncomfy
· The devilish ways our brains can fuck us over
· Our decision to choose a healthier form of denial about hard things
· How farm chores informed our approach to parenting
· The research that reinforced our naïve trust in the hard stuff
· How “leaning in” can hurt so good
· Hannah’s sliding doors mall meltdown moment
· The little trick to help our brains make big girl choices
· How accepting the “as-is” can turn the hard stuff into the real stuff
· The gist of our 12 Empowerments
· Why we’re only as close to a dream as we’re willing to get to its obstacle
· The leap of faith that is controlling less and trusting more
Let’s show up and grow up!
