Throwing it back this week to episode 171, a solo show were I explore the work of keeping it together when things fall apart. I would argue this is THE work. If you are someone who find youself getting on the emotional freight train with your kids, this show is for you. I share ideas and practices that will support you with staying in the present moment and being who your kids need you to be when they are having a hard time.

Today I am interviewing Esther Goetz. Esther is the mama behind the wildly popular instagram account, Moms of Bigs. We spent time in this interview talking about the power of community during this season of parenting, and how authenticity and transparency about our experiences creates deeper connections with each other, and supports us in moving through the hard times.

Today I am back with a FRESH solo show for you! I dig into the phrase "I believe you" as I understand it from Dr. Becky Kennedy's work. What would have happened if our parents had said that to us as teens? What could it open up in our relationship with our OWN teens if we are willing to say it to them?

Enjoy!

My guest today is Fernanda Lee.

Fernanda Lee, M.A.Ed, holds a degree in business administration and worked for Accenture, Bank of America and other investment brokers, until she became a mother, and decided to learn more about child development. 

Fernanda now holds a Master Degree in Education, with a Pupil Personnel Services credential, and has served as a school counselor in elementary and middle public schools. She is a lead trainer in Positive Discipline, serving parents, health professionals, teachers, early childhood educators, couples, and professionals in the workplace in the United States, Brazil, Portugal and Luxembourg. 

Fernanda was featured in two national magazines “Escola” and “English as a Foreign Language” discussing the practical application of Positive Discipline in the classroom. She is very thankful to be raising her two teenagers with Positive Discipline, as without it she would have pulled out all her hair. 

 

Takeaways from the show:

  • How Fernanda first got involved with Positive Discipline
  • Changes in your relationship as your kids grow older
  • Using Positive Discipline with older adolescents and teens
  • Some of the biggest challenges that come with parenting teens
  • Listening to and having open discussions with your teen
  • Being understanding and respectful with your kids 
  • Saying no in a productive way to teens

I am revisiting Eps 259, exploring the question, "is this Positive Discipline?" Parents in the trenches of naviagating challenging behavior often wonder if what they are doing fits under the PD umbrella. I tease this apart for you with the intention of offering listeners a deeper understanding and encouragement to support them in the Positive Discipline practice.
