On Season 2 Episode 3 of the Marriage More podcast, Mandy and Jeff take some time to talk about dealing with the difficulties of raising a “spirited child”. For any parent that can relate, this is a MUST listen.
Are you as shocked as we are? We’re back for the third podcast in a row after saying we were not committing to any kind of weekly recordings. BAM! But we’ve got to recap episode 2 of our TV show on TLC, Behind Closed Doors: The American Family.
Episode number 2 is a lot about our youngest son and about his behaviors we’ve been learning to navigate over the past few years. Today, we’re in play therapy and working with a lot of people who are equipping us to better handle his behavior outburst.
We’ve had to learn that what we may have done with our other boys really just doesn’t work with Sloane. And sometimes it is HARD… and that that’s ok. We’ve felt all the feelings about trying to handle a child who is sensitive and spirited. From getting comments in public by other parents to having friends see the wheels come off in our home and feeling like we need to justify the outburst and how we handle his behaviors. We too struggle, like many of you, to know what’s best for each of our kids at times. #ParentingIsHard
Tune in to hear how we’re working on learning to be better parents and how we’ve had to realize that what others say about our parenting just doesn’t matter.
