Loved the performance and the message in this insightful listen. Brene Brown delivers her research wholeheartedly.

No consequences for bad behaviours, just conversations

I feel this parenting strategy is trying to foster a relationship with the child so that you can go through life being their best friend. As admirable as that is, and yes we want our kids to come to us with problems in their life, we do also have to teach that bad behavior and poor choices actually have consequences in order to set them up for the real world.

No, I am not going to just have a conversation with my kid if they are hurting my other child, absolutely they are going to get stern words and no they are not meant to ‘enjoy’ being disciplined. Yes it is about teaching and I like the idea of being a calm parent, but I also do not want to reinforce bad behavior with positive attention, which I feel is exactly what would happen if I followed the authors advice.

I didn’t find much of value in this book, it seemed to live in la la land, not in the real world.

Really enjoyed Osher’s frank, witty and honest story. Refreshing to hear such a transparent account of living with and learning to manage mental illness.
