Home is what matters – 90% of their brain is formed before kindergarten, the emotional climate wires their subconscious, the parent-child relationship creates templates for life, and parenting is the HARDEST job in the entire world, with no training or manual to do it well. It’s an evolution of growth for both parties, and every child is unique. And we are never done, even when kids leave home.
In this interview, Danielle shares about how the parent-child relationship evolves as kids age, and what’s important “big picture” – not only identifying the end goal, and “phases” but what it looks like to relate to them and why it’s important.
We discussed how to shift the culture in the parent-child relationship from “me vs. you” to “us vs. problems” and we talked why we are responsible TO our kids not FOR our kids.
Of course, we also touched the subject of the empty nest and how to parent grown-up kids 😉
