👩👧💖Have you ever wondered what your children REALLY think of your parenting style (but you’re too afraid to ask)💖👩👧
I had a brainwave the other week: wouldn't it be cool to ask my kids what they thought of my parenting style and how it's affected them, what did and didn't work, what they'd change, what they'll keep for when they become parents.
Apart from the episode I did last week with my second son, Ryan (you can listen to that here), I also did a podcast a while ago talking about why I believe Boys Need Rules, but girls aren’t much different, to be honest. (you can listen to that podcast here)
And NOTE: these are all my opinions. They’re not the only ones and they’re not the truth, they’re just what worked for me.
If you want to read some books that I thought were absolutely brilliant (partly because they completely validated my own beliefs about parenting! 😜🤣) check out Celia Lashlie’s books.
Celia was a prison officer in a juvenile detention centre who went on to be a psychologist and travelled round schools in Australia and New Zealand to talk to parents about teenage boys’ need for rules.
