FREE TO STRUGGLE // support grit, perseverance + confidence-building through parenting + discipline

Today we’re back with a new season of the Upbringing podcast! Join us this week on the as we explore our kids’ FREEDOM TO STRUGGLE. They do it a lot. It can feel like shit. But it doesn’t have to! Join us as we learn from the best and the brightest organizational psychologists, authors, researchers and brainiacs about things like grit, perseverance, confidence, and curiosity -- and why the WAY we approach our kids as they flip out, cry, worry, whine, misbehave (ie. STRUGGLE) matters a whole heck of a lot. We’ll share our personal tales of hilarious parenting hardship from the week, flip some common beliefs on struggle and explore all the ways we’re endeavoring to parent beyond instinct and conventional wisdom -- with awareness, authenticity and alignment. We laugh, we cry, we lean in. Join us!

Mental Mantras we explore:

They need help

This isn’t forever

This isn’t about me

This doesn’t mean anything about them as a person

Growth mindset over fixed mindset

The only way to learn is to struggle

Shut up and listen
