Are you concerned your kids won't be the people you'd like them to be when they grow up? Is there a constant struggle to get them to listen and respect you? This podcast is filled with great advice on raising respectful kids in today's high tech engaged world.
Raising kids today is not easy. There are so many distractions that it's hard for parents to really connect with their kids. That connection with a child and parent is so important, not only while they are young, but also when it comes time for them to take on the world on their own. We want our kids to realize that you can't get what you want all the time, especially in the real world.
In today's podcast, I have the pleasure of speaking with Amy McCready. Amy is the founder of Positive Parenting Solutions and the author of If I Have to Tell You One More Time... and The Me, Me, Me Epidemic! She is a regular parenting contributor on The Today Show and has also appeared on Rachael Ray, CBS This Morning, CNN, Fox & Friends, MSNBC, Steve Harvey, and elsewhere. Her most important role is playing mom to two teenage boys.
Amy and I discuss some great ways to help our kids have healthy attitudes and be respectful in or outside of the home. We talk about setting limits for our kids and to make sure that consequences are set in place. Many parents struggle with telling their kids no, and today Amy talks about how we as parents can take control and raise confident, respectful and responsible kids. Kids today need parents that empower them to do better and make a difference. Amy has amazing tips to help parents make a positive impact on their kids that will help them for the rest of their lives.
