Episode 48: When Boundaries Need to Be Set with Natalie R.
EPISODE 48 THE PARENTING MENTOR: When Boundaries Need to Be Set with Natalie R.
Natalie is a single mother of two--6 and 2.5 years old--and an entrepreneur. Her children struggle to differentiate between work time and playtime, and Natalie is having a hard time establishing boundaries for them.
Today, we talk about how Natalie can help the situation. We talk about the power of alone time, noting that it doesn’t need to be anything fancy or long. I note the importance of letting your kids know that you want to spend time with them, and I explain how Natalie can use a kitchen timer to help set boundaries for her kids.
“Don’t put pressure on yourself to make each thing super amazing. You can sit and read a book together, or just sit and listen to their favorite song over and over again.”
