EP 113: Boss Momming When You Have Challenging Children
Melissa is a connected parenting coach who specializes in helping parents at the end of their rope as they work to manage their child's challenging behaviors. She describes herself as "the owner’s manual" you wished had come with your child!
As we chat, she walks us through her strategies for understanding why a child behaves as they do, staying on our kid's team, and collaborating with our children for solutions that lead to success for the entire family.
Melissa injects laughter, experience, and honesty into a conversation that touches on a variety of topics relevant to mompreneurs with kids at home - including navigating hard behaviors, setting boundaries, multi-generational living, business travel, self-care, balance, social media, routines, and even sugary drinks!
Our favorite nuggets:
The place where both kid and parent feel respected is where the magic happens!
Behavior is a function of the brain, and understanding the reasons behind that behavior helps us to deal with it.
Fear drives many of our parenting fixes. Look for collaborative solutions - and stay on your kid’s team!
“Laugh more, yell less.”
Our relationship with our own parents is lifelong - so we should parent in a way that supports a lifelong connection with our child.
