If you’re a parent, then you already know parenting isn’t always easy, and parenting in the time of COVID-19 is something altogether different.
Our kids want to go to school. They want to play with their friends and have birthday parties and sleepovers, and go places. And they can’t do any of that right now.
Not only that, but for those 8 to 10 hours they were at school every day, they’re now at home. And you’re home with them trying to manage everything.
It can be a lot to handle, and it’s why I invited Dr. Deborah Tillman, host of America’s Supernanny and author of Parenting on Purpose, to give us parents some actionable steps we can take to be better, especially in the wake of this pandemic.
Join us as Dr. Deborah breaks down the reasons why parents need to encourage, connect and respond to their kids. As she says, “It’s important to give children the space they need to communicate what’s wrong and not be judged on or criticized for what they say.”
This episode is brought to you by Purpose 2 Platform, a 20-week business accelerator and mentorship program that will get you clear on HOW to package your PURPOSE, communicate your PROMISE to your ideal audience, choose the best PLATFORM for your personality and lifestyle and create a PREMIUM offer.
Through this program, you’ll receive accountability and support in a dynamic community designed so you can finally make progress and be ready before you even need to pull that trigger on what’s no longer serving you.
