Welcome back to the Family Culture podcast!
How do you raise kids who are independent and have a healthy connection with you?
It’s totally normal for us, as parents, to deal with fear and anxiety related to our kids. We want so desperately to protect them from the dangers this world has to offer, both physical & emotional.
But sometimes in the process, we position ourselves as the superhero of our kids’ lives and end up preventing the growth and learning they need to truly become the best version of themselves.
On today's episode, we're talking about 6 strategies for raising independent kids while staying connected to them in a special way:
Episode 9 Takeaways:
+ A strong attachment is foundational
+ Empower them to make choices
+ Let them stretch their abilities
+ Celebrate risk & mistakes
+ Demonstrate confidence in their abilities
+ Don’t be your child’s hero; be their guide
Give yourself room to learn in the process and watch both you AND your child grow.
