In our last episode with Amy Morin, author of 13 Things Mentally Strong Parents Don’t Do, we discussed how to enhance mental toughness and emotional resilience in our kids. What does that mean for us dads?
As men, we are thrown so many things each day. Keeping up with work, finances, and family can be exhausting. It’s easy to become irritable and susceptible to knee jerk reactions, especially when our kids don’t listen to us. We usually yell and shout, and then feel terrible.
In this episode, I teach you how to use three seconds to create a mental space in your mind and use questions to give your kid a choice to obey.
