EPISODE 65 THE PARENTING MENTOR: When Your Kid Doesn’t Want to Go Back to Camp with Lauren B Part 2
Lauren B is back again this week to chat about how to convince her 11 year old to go back to camp. She’s calling in from an airbnb where she’s been taking care of her son during a flu outbreak at his 4-week summer camp. Now that his sickness has passed he’s refusingo go back.
On today’s episode we talk about some strategies around turning a negative feeling and experience into a positive one without conflict. We talk about why honing in on goals is important for kids to feel empowered.
We discuss the importance of creating a dynamic where your kid feels like you’re on the same team. We talk about recognizing the differences between you and your kids and engaging with them in a way that works best for them.
“They are different than we are. They are completely different human beings and we need to engage them in a way that works for them. And that makes them feel good. And then when we do, and when we really understand who they are and what they need, you don’t have to struggle and worry.” - Sue Groner
