Is lack of respect an issue at home? Defiant behavior from your kids? How do we tackle it? My guest has a surprising approach. Tackling this, and many other parenting issues, starts with language, she says. You’re listening to Jewish Latin Princess. I’m your Host, Yael Trusch, welcome to the show. I have Adina Soclof, Professional Development Instructor and Speech Pathologist, Parenting Educator at Parenting Simply.com and Author of the newly released book, Parenting Simply. Adina says “The most valuable thing a kid can have is a calm parent.” And we talk about strategies to stay calm when in the trenches. Will we get the desired behavior all the time? My guest says No, but over the length of our parenting years we will have cultivated a healthy relationship, plus the good behavior if we keep our sense of calm throughout this journey – one that can be frustrating – she admits to it herself. So, let’s dive in, with Parenting Simply’s Founder, Adina Soclof.
