What a gift it was to spend time talking to Ariadne Brill of Positive Parenting Connection! We dug into how making agreements with our kids helps them to develop a sense of trust and capability - while strengthening our relationship with them along the way. Ariadne has some great ideas around how to bring more ease to mealtimes and shares some resources for parents for teaching and modeling self regulation.
