In today’s episode I tell a story about a woman who once sat at a table full of loved ones, watched some of these loved ones manipulate her child, and feel completely powerless to help.
Maybe you’ve found yourself in a similar situation:
– You understand that holiday gatherings include some degree of etiquette and civil niceties
– But sometimes these people – these dear relatives, friends, loved ones – can push our buttons and set off our children.They can really wake the Mama/Papa Bear in each of us.
Sometimes we can feel truly helpless in handling complex social situations, and this time of year, we see A LOT of loved ones, magnifying the problem.
Today’s episode is all about how to handle that type of situation!
Listen to learn the ninja tactic of getting control of a situation, especially involving your child, and especially in the public setting of a family/friend gathering, where everything can feel so contentious.
It’s the first in this year’s Holiday Parenting Survival Guide…
