What are we supposed to do when our kids admit to doing something wrong?
If we blow up, they will lie to avoid getting into trouble. They’ll be afraid to come to us whenever they have problems.
When they are small, it may be a fight on the playground or a grade on a test. As they get older, they’ll have to navigate sex, drugs, and peer pressure. The risks are bigger, and the consequences are more serious.
Today we talk about getting your kid to be honest with you, no matter what.
“You are the lighthouse in your home. Your job is not to go into the storm of emotions, but to light the way through it.”
In this short episode, you will learn how to:
- create a psychologically safe environment where you kids feel comfortable with telling you anything.
- eliminate guilt, shame, and fear from the equation.
- celebrate ownership, honesty, and integrity above all things.
- be mentally and emotionally vigilant so that we can respond instead of reacting to crises in our kids’ lives.
