Hello, hello! Today on The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast I really aim to EMPOWER you and to give you PERMISSION to live that parenting life you have always imagined. But I have to say that if you really want to live the parenting life you imagined – being the parent you want to be, responding to your kids the way you envision and desire to respond to them (even when they are doing those unwanted behaviors), actually enjoying being a parent, AND feeling confident – you don’t want to do it alone. You simply don’t. And as you’ve probably all figured out, parenting does not come with a manual. So today, let’s talk about creating our own manual, if you will, in order to be the parents that we so desire to be.
But before we dive in, my Regain Control course is the PERFECT companion to today’s conversation. I’ll talk more about it later so for now check it out at www.bit.ly/regaincontrolnow.
Now let’s head to the show.
Parenting doesn’t come with a manual. When I became a parent, I wish I knew everything there is to know about raising children, but I’m so thankful that I’ve got a head of knowledge on child behavior.
Throughout my education I always said that even if I never worked a day in my life (which actually isn’t the case, I’ve done a lot of working with kids and parents), if I was a mama and raised my kids without working outside of the home, my education and my knowledge would never be wasted because that knowledge on child behavior would support me in my parenting journey every single day of my parenting life. And it’s been 100% true.
You can find a little bit of this knowledge in my 3 Easy Parenting Hacks freebie at www.bit.ly/3tipsfreebie.
But this idea that parenting doesn’t come with a manual is so true. As parents we don’t know everything, and truthfully, it’s impossible to know everything. So, what do we do? What do we do if we don’t have that manual?
Getting help is the best think you can do. Utilize your resources. Access your parenting experts.
Why are you trying to do parenting without support? Why are you trying to do it alone?
My argument is that with extra support, parenting is easier. We’ve got the resources, we’ve got the backbone, we’ve got the support we need to be the parent we want to be. And when we have the knowledge, the support, and the confidence, parenting is easier.
For example, if you want to implement positive parenting strategies, how are you going to do it?
For support in that area, my Regain Control course will give you the specific tools and knowledge to begin that positive parenting practice. Check out the course at www.bit.ly/regaincontrolnow.
Our world has taught us that it’s silly to seek outside help on parenting. That we “shouldn’t” have to pay to learn how to be a parent. That we should already know everything. That’s absolutely crazy!
Parenting doesn’t come with a manual. Why not talk to an expert? Why not get expert advice?
I’m giving you permission to seek extra help. Seek out that advice. Change the world’s ideas about getting parenting help by utilizing help for yourself.
Support your friends by giving them the permission and courage to seek out that help and guidance that they may need. For starters, share this episode with them.
