Focus on connecting with, rather than battling, your children.
Start by adjusting your mindset (the real battleground) about parenting and what you thought being a parent was supposed to look like.
As parents, we are pressured to teach our children all the right skills to succeed at school, with friends, and in life.
We are actually able to teach our children all the right skills by deeply understanding and connecting with them.
Children connect with us and learn from us in the presence of a patient, empathic, gentle, and securely attached relationship.
Yes, they need boundaries, but they need a relationship with us first!
