39: Parenting Myth #3: There are Good Children and Bad Children -- Conscious Parenting Coaches Lauren Coglianese Keck and Karemi Alvarez
“What I have come to understand is that there are no good or bad children. There are compliant children, defiant children, and then there are authentic children." -- Lauren Coglianese Keck
Wow. I have to tell you, that quote alone has changed my outlook on parenting. And that's just the first minute of the show!
This show is the fourth 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 two magical Conscious Parenting coaches: Lauren Coglianese Keck of Sunshower Coaching and Karemi Alvarez of the Conscious Parenting Institute. In the episode, we talk about:
- What happens when we put labels like "good", "bad", "difficult", "challenging" on our children -- and where this comes from
- Lauren's powerful story of transformation, now "8 years sober" from spanking her child
- Karemi's beautiful explanation of the double standards we have for our children vs. ourselves
- And most importantly, how we can create the space for our children to be authentic
