Episode 21: An Ode to Imperfection

I’m getting real with you today on The Heartful Parent Podcast! I’m sharing a personal story about a [very recent] time I didn’t use the techniques of Positive Discipline––instead I let my anger get the best of me.

Instead, I spoke to my daughter from a place of fear, frustration, and disbelief; I let the imperfect human side of me win out over the so-called “parent expert” side of me.

BUT, it’s not all bad! My relationship with my kid and my ability to *tolerate* myself were both repaired fairly quickly, which is why I’m sharing this story with you today. I’m digging into the 3 reasons why the repair happened quickly and successfully, and that part does go back to the elements of Positive Discipline that have laid a strong foundation within my parenting and my family.

If you would like to learn more about how you can begin to implement Positive Discipline into your own parenting, we would love to see you in The Heartful Parent Academy! We dig deep into so many useful tools including the 4Rs of Recovery that I mention in today’s episode.
