_podcastTemplateHave you noticed a skewing of the management in your household from yourself to your kids?

Are you regretting giving too much autonomy to your kids too early on, and finding you are at the mercy of all their demands?

It can creep up on us in all avenues of our lives.

So here are a few ideas to keep them in check using the principles of boundaries and natural consequences.  Teaching our children to make good and wise decisions in life requires practising in our safe homes.  And it requires them understanding how it affects them in real life.

Be encouraged in this week’s podcast to decrease your stress by saying no with natural consequences.

_podcastTemplateDo you have difficulty saying, “No”?  Do you even think, “No”, is a valid answer?  It’s too easy to say, “Yes”, to so many things that we spread ourselves too thinly, don’t do anything well, and become stressed and anxious because we can’t keep up with everything we are trying to accomplish.

In this week’s podcast, learn how to say,”No”, so you can make room and provide opportunity in your schedule to say a resounding, “Yes!” to the things you are passionate about, and decrease your overall stress at the same time.
