Eat, Sleep, Poop: How to Encourage Your Child to Cooperate When You Can’t "Control" Them

In this podcast, we explore how your parenting personality is helping you shine and holding you back.

If you’ve got a strong-willed kid in your house, chances are you’ve battled with them over one of the big three:

  • Getting them to eat
  • Getting them to sleep
  • Getting them to toilet

And, if you’ve ever begged or threatened your child to get them to do one of these things, you’ve probably noticed these tactics pretty much never work.

In this episode, we talk about three practical strategies to use in instances like this, when you can’t "control" your child (but really need them to make a good choice!), and which will come most naturally to you based on your parenting personality.

If you want to learn even MORE strategies, join us on Tuesday, September 20, at 8 PM ET, for a live session on "Practical Strategies to Share and Give Up Control Throughout the Day." Just email for the Zoom link!
