Mastermind Parenting Podcast

May 14, 2018

In this episode, I unpack the default behavior for so many of us when life throws us a curveball - sitting in blame and judgment. I explain why this is the case for me too and what I’m learning to replace these negative emotions with something more helpful. I share some personal stories to explain all of this in more detail and ways to see an accident or mistake as an opportunity for real learning. I also discuss the best way to ensure that you’re raising good people rather than creepy sh!theads.

Topics covered:

  • Blame and judgment culture

  • Judgment is a self projection

  • Brene’ Brown’s theory about common enemy intimacy

  • Empathy and how productive convos produce good people

  • The mom movement and how we are shaping the people that will lead us into the future

  • Spending time nourishing rather than depleting yourself and how to know that you are doing that

  • Mistakes are part of the human experience and are an opportunity to learn, grow and evolve

  • What to do to ensure that your kids respect you and other people

  • Model the behavior you seek from your kids - if you want kind respectful kids, treat them kind and respectfully

  • Mortified about your daughter becoming a mean girl? I tell you what to do to make sure that doesn’t happen
