YOU CAN'T MAKE ME!
What’s your motivating style? Mine is more of the coerce and bribe variety which I know isn’t ideal but is honestly all I often can do in a heated moment of exchange.
I understand my child needs autonomy, and that it’s a healthy thing to nurture and encourage, but staying attuned in the moment while your child is freaking out is really hard. And exhausting. And sometimes at the end of the day a fine you can watch Frozen bribe is all I got. But, I suppose in my better moments, I could consider some of these strategies instead which create an “autonomy supportive” environment that supports both of us.
