This week I am revisiting my conversation with Alyson Schafer from the Risky Behavior and Teens Mini Summit that went live in the summer of 2020.
Alyson is one of Canada’s most notable parenting experts. She’s a family counselor with a private practice in Toronto and has presented to audiences all around the world.
She has regular media sports, is the author of three best selling books; Breaking the Good Mom Myth, Honey I Wrecked the Kids, and Ain’t Misbehavin’. All three of these books have been translated to multiple languages.
Alyson recently launched a podcast called Parenting the Adlerian Way, which you can find on most major podcast platforms.
Takeaways from the show:
- Fear around risky behaviors
- Framework for the teen years
- Children’s behavior doesn’t reflect how you’re doing as a parent
- Holding a safe place for mistakes
- Non-attachment to outcome
- Allowing teens to have compassion for our experience
- Acknowledge your kids might need space from you
- How risky behavior looks in boys vs girls
- Letting go of the reins
- Winning cooperation vs forcing compliance
- Motivational interviewing
