This podcast will focus on Duct Tape Parenting, a less-is-more approach to raising respectful, responsible and resilient kids. Duct Tape Parenting asks parents to refrain from doing many of the go-to parenting strategies that really don’t work. From nagging and reminding to saving, time-outing, consequencing, and yelling, Vicki Hoefle asks parents to stop talking, butt out and start focusing on the self skills, home skills, social skills and life skills our children need to thrive without our constant help and vigilance. When we let go and do less, our children’s brains turn on and allow them to do more. This shift can lead to a more positive, peaceful home life than everyone enjoys.
