How to Avoid Raising Fearful Kids

Nov. 21, 2022

As parents, we all walk a fine line between setting healthy, helpful boundaries with our kids and being over-protective, helicopter parents.

Naturally, each of us wants to keep our kids from repeating the mistakes we made. If we're not careful, this can lead to a parenting style driven by fear. And fear, as you may know, is a terrible counselor. It also provides a horrible example to follow. Fearful parents raise fearful kids. How do we as parents break fear's grip on our own lives so we can raise children who aren't terrified to take appropriate levels of risk?

Today, Addison, Juli, John, and Lisa will lend you their personal experience with the hope that you can leave some fearful parenting habits in the past. May this episode equip you as a parent to train your kids well rather than trapping them in your own fears. neither hosts nor alters podcast files. All content © its respective owners.
