Setting limits is an essential and important part of parenting. How can you set effective and firm limits without yelling, threats, bribes and harshness?

How can you hold that limit without giving in and learn to say “No” without feeling bad?

Your child may not be happy and that’s OK. You can hold space for their big feelings and support them emotionally. In this on air coaching episode I help Zara, a single mom of a 6 year old boy with those questions.
