Exceptional Parenting Podcast

Feb 12, 2020

We all have an idea of the kind of parent we want to be. Maybe it’s a mom who doesn’t yell or a mom who loves every minute of parenting. In this episode, Alyssa Blask Campbell and I explain why those ideas can be more harmful than good when it comes to helping us be a more positive parent. 

Both Alyssa and I have seen things like the “no yell challenge” and all the pressure it puts on parents to essentially “be perfect” even if it is for a short time. Alyssa brings in research and I add personal experiences of why that isn’t a sustainable way to improve our parenting. 

What does work? In this episode, you’ll learn about the importance of the internal work we do on ourselves as parents, and how that helps us naturally be better parents. You’ll also learn, and hopefully, internalize that we are all human. We all have emotions, and that’s ok! Even as parents it’s ok. All of our emotions are signals for us to dig deeper into why we react, and this episode will help you see how to respond more than react.
