The Good News About Bad Behavior| Katherine Reynolds Lewis, award-winning journalist
#175: Journalist/parent educator Katherine Reynolds Lewis and I bond over our love for our strict, hyper-achieving Tiger Moms, our fear of disappointing them, and our strong need to parent our children differently. At the same time, kids today are spiraling out of control. In
Lewis writes, “we are facing a crisis of self-regulation”. We talk about how to address the emotional needs of our children and ourselves, how to get our kids on board for household work, the neurological side-effects of critical mothering, the apprenticeship model of parenting, and our soulful mission as mothers. Y’all will LOVE this week’s #mombomb. x Ellie Knaus
