When to Set Limits & When to Let Go
Parents face challenges every day with setting and upholding limits around cooperating together at home, schoolwork, screen time, chores, sleep schedules, and treating others with respect.
Discouragement and stress can lead to the desire to exert more control. That usually means barking orders at our kids and partners at home. But our attempts to control things can actually lead to more disconnection and discord — the opposite of what we ultimately want.
How do we know what limits to uphold and what limits to relax? Join us to learn how to let go of what is not serving our families and set firm and friendly limits around those things that do really matter.
For parents of preschoolers through teens.
