Key Takeaways

Are you ready to feel more connected with your child? Do you want to raise cooperative, confident, kind kids?
What if it’s not about changing them. What if it’s about changing your own perceptions and parenting habits?
According to clinical psychologist specializing in family and parent support, Dr. Sarah Bren, that’s precisely how to transform your parenting experience and deepen the connection with your children.
This episode is like a toolkit you can return to again and again. We touch on tantrums, whining, secure attachment, attunement, coregulation, developmentally appropriate expectations for your children at all ages, boundaries and why they are so key in your parenting journey, natural consequences, positive reinforcement and so much more. Dr. Bren even shares what she calls the 3 magic words that can help deepen the connection with your child – it’s brilliant!
