I not too long ago learn a pre-release copy of Alli Worthington’s upcoming e-book Remaining You Whereas Elevating Them and that’s the place I acquired the phrase from. Alli talks about how youngsters are sometimes way more succesful than we predict they’re. What would it not appear to be for us to present them extra alternatives to be accountable for their very own tasks — similar to getting up and on the point of depart for college, making their very own lunches, managing their very own homework, and so forth.
I so agreed with what she jokingly referred to as “slacker parenting” as a result of it’s about elevating our children to be adults, to take possession of their life and choices, and to study private duty from a younger age.
On this episode, we speak extra about what this has appeared like in our dwelling, the way it frees us as much as get pleasure from our children extra, why it’s a present we give our children, and the way it helps put together them extra for all times and their future.
