Kira and Deana talk about when to push our kids and when to back off. Together they share ways to find a hierarchy of values to inform your choices, a three step process to help you figure out which way to go and the impact (both positive and negative) of pushing too much or letting go too often. Listeners will also learn about Kira’s embarrassing little secret…bet you’ll never guess what it is!

Deana and Kira discuss defiance, backtalk and more. Together they encourage listeners to think about what they might be allowing without meaning to, ways to foster a relationship of trust and cooperation as well as strategies for making a change if defiance has become a routine response.

Kira and Deana share ways to keep your cool when parenting pushes you to the limits. They discuss the negative impacts on that regular yelling can have on children as well as ways to think and behave differently in order to prevent explosive feelings. And, in the event parents still yell (which happens to the best of us!) they share ways to repair with kids and heal any hurt it may have caused.
