37: Parenting Myth #1: Parenting is About the Child -- Conscious Parenting Coaches Jen Klein, Janet Philbin, and Claudia Pape
When I first heard this myth -- parenting is about the child -- I thought, "Wait. Whaaat?!" If it's not about the child, what IS it about?! Well, my friends, that's what we talk about in this episode! This myth is so powerful that once you understand it, you will be transformed. Promise. This show is the second in our 8-part series on Conscious Parenting the parenting myths Dr. Shefali Tsabary so beautifully shared in her book, The Awakened Family. To bring this myth to life, we are joined by three amazing Conscious Parenting Coaches who generously share their wisdom and vulnerably share their stories: Jen Klein, Claudia Pape, and Janet Philbin. In the episode, we talk about:One of the most powerful questions every parent can (must!) ask themselves. It will totally transform your perspective on parenting.How understanding this myth ultimately led one of our guests — a self-professed perfectionist who thought "singing was the scariest thing in the world" — to take singing lessons (...AND she now regularly dances with her daughter on TikTok)And, finally, an amazing story of how another coach helped her daughter resolve a situation of anxiety and struggle....without saying a word to her; only changing how she showed up.If you're interested in learning more about these amazing coaches, please check out the series webpage at soulpathparenting.com.
