How to Stress Less and Get Your Kids to Cooperate Without Threats and Punishments with Robbin McManne

A Purpose Driven Mom Podcast

Episode 187

How can we be more patient when parenting? Or intentional? How can we make parenting needs less about us adults, and more about the connection that we share with our children? What do we truly want — as a relationship — with our kids.
In this episode, we are sharing a ton of great ideas about how we can be proactive instead of reactive with our parenting. As well as what to do when we do lose our cool and forget about the proactive ideas you came up within the first place.
We are talking today to gentle parenting expert Robbin. Take the “you” out of parenting, so you can enjoy it more and just be ➡️ more patient, more kind, more loving, and caring not only to your kids but to yourself as well.

About Robbin:

My name is Robbin McManne and I, like so many,  struggled for years because I wasn’t the parent I wanted to be.  I struggled to find a connection with my two boys.  I had so much love for them, but I found I was often overwhelmed with their needs and losing my temper on a regular basis (sometimes even more than them!).  The more frustrated I got, the unhappier I felt.  I knew what I was doing wasn’t working and that there must be a better way.
