Show Notes

With a super-impressive bio (think: attorney, renowned public speaker, author of 13 books, family advocate, not to mention mother, wife, and grandma) Merrilee Boyak is full of wisdom, especially when it comes to raising independent and capable kids. In this episode, we glean from her years of experience as she shares why it's so important to train your kids to be independent, why you should let your kids fail, and why we shouldn't bail our kids out when they get into a bind. Through humorous stories and in a fun, upbeat style that is all Merrilee, you'll learn how agency plays a part in rearing children. And you actually might be a little excited next time your little cherub forgets an assignment so you can teach him through natural consequences.
