Nurturing Strong Parent-Child Relationships with Tyler Drouet

SHOW NOTES: Episode 31

On today’s episode, I have Tyler Drouet, a parent coach and consultant with Simplified Parenting here to talk more about parenting. Tyler brings a practical and encouraging approach to parenting.

Tyler shares more about the emotional perspective of parents and how our experiences and narratives shape our parenting styles. We dove into the expectations and how it can impact parenting. We chatted about the challenges of parenting, including anger and expectations, and normalize asking for help.

Tyler shares some tips on making minor small adjustments and focusing on those small wins to create change. It’s important to focus on our own growth in parenting rather than solely on your child’s response. She shares that it takes time for children to adapt to new patterns so to be patient and always give yourself grace. By recognizing patterns and triggers, we can better understand what is beneath the surface when we have certain emotions come up such as anger. The goal is not perfection, but rather trying our best, owning our mistakes, and continuing to learn and grow as parents.

Tyler's insights into parenting are invaluable, and I am confident that our listeners will find them beneficial in their parenting journey.
