What We Talked About

Things to Remember

“Even when you get it right, even when you have it right, you can still get it wrong.”

“Curiosity is not just asking questions.” 

“Master listening in a conflict situation means you’re filling in the gaps.”

“Anytime you’re in a conflict, the most important part is connecting with that person.”

“When you want to build confidence in your children, allow them into the solution to bring them back in and give them a space for it.”

“Sometimes situations are for our children to sort through.”

“You’re absolutely meant to be the parent for your child.”
