The Oxygen Mask Episode 2 - They're Listening

Title Graphic Oxygen Mask 1400.jpg

In our second Oxygen Mask episode, “They’re Listening,” we have an honest conversation about the power of words in shaping how our children see themselves. Setting aside guilt, we step into the power we hold as parents to make a difference in small, consistent ways. We can be thoughtful and intentional about what we share and where. We can find outlets to process the hard stuff. We can practice “pivoting” from energy-sapping conversations about deficits, causes, cures, and strategies to emphasize gratitude, growth, and strengths. Listen and comment: What are some “pivot phrases” you can use to shift from fear or deficits to strengths? Have you ever had an aha moment where you realized your child is listening?
