#090 Confident Parenting with Heidi Benjaminsen
The world has taught you to runaway from your fears. I’m telling you to move towards your fears.
**IMPORTANT** Listen to The Podcast!
I don’t structure my interviews, so I don’t really prepare great show notes.
These show notes do not give the episode justice.

What holds Parents Back?
DOing things “Right.”
There’s no right or wrong way from parenting.
SO many different ways.
“I’m going to try this . . . “
Trust that you are doing things exactly how they should be.
Being afraid of doing it wrong will paralyze you. This leads to disappointment and regret.
The “Wrong Way” Can Totally Be the “Right Way!”
No matter what, you can turn tough parenting moments into powerful parenting moments.
You don’t have to be perfect.
Just do your best!
Wanting Your Teen To Like You
I don’t know if my teen likes me or not. I’m just going to make sure that I like them.
This will help you make better choices.
Remind yourself that you’ve never done this before.
You can’t control whether or not your teen likes you.
Parenting Ways of Being
Wanting to BE “Right” will disconnect you with your teen.
BEing the learner will help to connect you.
My Kid is a Great Kid, AND . . .
Helps you realize that nothing has gone wrong.
My teen can fail math, AND they can still be successful.
My teen can have a messy room, AND it’s okay.
This will help you limit catastrophizing.
