In this week’s episode of The Dad Central Show, we provide a replay of our most popular webinar from 2021 titled How to Stay Calm, Set Limits and Get Kids to Behave.

When kids misbehave or act out, yelling can sometimes feel like a very natural reaction. Research shows that not only is yelling at kids ineffective, but it can even have detrimental long-term effects on them. Despite our best intentions, calm parenting can sometimes be a real challenge to sustain.

This webinar featured peaceful parenting expert Sarah Rosensweet and fatherhood expert Brian Russell. Ed moderates a conversation that talks about the impact of yelling, how to manage ourselves and guide children to be healthy, positive and respectful.

As the conversation evolves Brian and Sarah speak from their personal and professional perspectives, distilling important themes about shame, fear, guilt and how that impacts us and our children.

As you listen, you’ll:

    • Learn strategies to stay calm when kids misbehave
    • Learn how to set positive limits for children to follow
    • Learn to communicate clearly with children
    • Get kids to listen and see them become happier
