If you’re a parent, you need to hear this

If you hear someone say parenting was easy, you know they’re lying.

The saying goes, there’s no greater joy and challenge than parenting. And yet, no one hands us a manual.

We want our children to become adults without limits. Too often, we don’t realize that we worry more about what other people think than how our children feel.

Shelly Lefkoe is the founder of Parenting the Lefkoeway, and also the co-founder and president of the Lefkoe Institute. In this talk, she shares the 5 most common negative beliefs your child might have and the steps you could take to counter them.

What if we could shift the paradigm of parenting from
I am the boss of my child to
I am my child’s guardian angel.
