EPISODE 69 THE PARENTING MENTOR: When your Child Doesn’t Listen to you with Nneka H
Nneka is a mom who’s finding it challenging to parent an 8 year old after raising two other children who are now 17 and 22 years old. This daughter has a will of her own and like most kids doesn’t just do what she’s told. She is especially tough with Nneka when it comes to homework as she is homeschooled. Whether or not your kid is homeschooled, if you're tired of being the homework warden, listen out for an eye opening perspective along with some strategies to make this easier for everyone.
“So I think that there’s a balance. First of all you can’t engineer your child. She’s not going to listen and respond exactly the way you want her to because she’s her own person.”- Sue Groner
