On this episode I talk about:
- Setting expectations and boundaries with your children
- The power of detailed explanation and why you should practice it daily
- Why it’s important to give your child a detailed breakdown of their day, what’s expected of them and what are the limits to follow
- What to do when your child is derailing from the plan
- The importance of creating space for your children
We simply cannot set clear expectations and boundaries if don’t have an open line of communication with our children and if we don’t allow them to have some space to just be and to play. On this episode I explain how to balance these things and how to make outings with your children, and every day tasks, a lot more easy and fun.
After listening to this podcast, you will be able to put yourself in your child’s shoes and understand how they process their surroundings and what’s expected of them. You will understand how to use this insight to create a better experience for both you and your child in your every day lives.
