3 Key Takeaways
- Stop asking yourself, “How do I teach my kids?” Instead ask, “How do I treat my kids?”
- It’s simple to know if you’re treating your kids right or wrong by assessing how it makes you feel. What are the relationships that you enjoy going back to? Use them as an example.
When kids come to you with all-encompassing words like “Nobody in the world likes me,” don’t justify the feeling. Instead, give them comfort and then ask “Is that really true?”
Wanda believes that parenting is the single most important job in the world, and if she can help moms know how to lead their kids confidently forward through big changes, they’ll use that influence to create homes where every kid feels belonging and where everyone loves to return home. That’s the “why” that led her to create Traditions of Truth and acquire techniques that align with your values and teach you to parent in a way that fulfills you.
