Join me as we discuss:
How to work with kids that are especially defiant and oppositional.
Where exactly the "you can't make me" comes from.
What can we and what can we not control and how the strongarm approach rarely is effective for long.
Many parents have very polarized ideas on how a parent is supposed to use their position as a parent (e.g. stronger, smarter, more knowledgable) to get their kids to do what they want.
Much to their surprise they wind up with kids that are very strong-willed and they throw their hands up and say "I don't know where this came from!"
In most cases, we are the Dr. Frankenstein that created this abomination. But who do we like to blame: the kid.
Today we cover how to work with the mildly resistant kiddo to the openly defiant and oppositional kid as well as one of my favorite clips on persuasive versus positional leadership.
