Episode 55 – How do I get my spouse to stop training our kids to be victims?

Today on The Not-So-Serious Life, Jason and Steve answer Cleatus’s question:

“How do I get my spouse to stop training our kids to be victims?”

What did you think of Steve’s curveball answer of “leaving it alone?”

Do you agree that the kids are pretty smart and aren’t really being quite as “trained” as we sometimes may think they are?

You know what WE think and now it’s time for YOU to weigh in…

How can you relax a little more in your parenting?

Can you see the lessons and joy that your experience of your own parents can bring into your life – whether helping you to be or not to be a certain way based on their example?

  1. Fire Up Chips!!! My daugher was a Chippewa!!! Such good advice NOT to make your partner wrong. Thank you!

  2. Thanks so much for answering my question! You know – I think you nailed it….Sometimes I try to control the uncontrollable and it gets me in a knot….In fact: I get in a knot about all sorts of things……………Your good advice will be taken: Relax and focus on all the good my wife does….and have a laugh….while making sure I am leading by example….

    You guys do great work – so stoked to have my question answered…

    I teach a few different parenting classes and I have to say that this answer is fantastic. It actually teaches the parents how to model their beliefs and how learned behaviour will be left up to the child regardless. The more we can model a certain type of behaviour through example becomes more powerful. No right or wrong parenting ways, just doing your best to lead by a positive example. Good luck Cleatus! Great answers Steve and Jason.

  4. I just want to add that I re – watched the answer and got even more out of it….Smart guys! Thanks again…I’m relaxed!
