Don’t you think it’s interesting that we expect our kids to listen all the time, upon command, even though we don’t necessarily do it ourselves? We’re not born with the skill of listening, it’s something that needs to be learned, and the same goes for our children.
Malcolm Gladwell’s principle is that it takes about 10,000 hours of deliberate practice to become world-class at anything. To be great at something, we have to put in the focus, effort and time, and repeat this over and over again until we get it. This week, I’m showing you how to apply this principle to your peaceful parenting to help you be more understanding and compassionate towards your kids.
In this episode, I’m explaining why your kids aren’t listening and what you can do to better manage your reactions and emotions around it. I’m showing you how to change your perspective when you feel triggered by your child’s actions, and how you can better support your kids while they are building a skill or competency.
