For her upcoming book, Jamie was asked by her editors to define “connection” and why it’s vital to keeping your little one cooperative, satisfied and engaged. A strong parent-child connection isn’t helicoptering around them and monitoring every little move they make, but is in fact a 2-way street with activities, healthy boundaries and, yes, precious solo time.
In this episode, Jamie discusses how to keep your kid’s emotional gas tank on an even keel, why you don’t need to be there 100% to forge a strong connection with them, and developing a healthy flow of activity when you do bond.
The Finer Details of This Episode:
“If I had to boil down all my work with families, it would come down to one word, and that is ‘connection’.”
“Parenting is not perfection, it’s a practice.”
“You can 100% love your kid, be engaged with your kid, and get bored by your kid!”
