Hi Friend,

One thing I know for sure is you are here and listening because you want to be the best parent you can be. You want to have your home be a place where your kids thrive and feel safe and loved.

But how often do we feel like we fall short? We get so many conflicting messages and advice - it can be totally overwhelming and confusing - and then much of what we hear doesn’t work because each of our kids is unique, our families are unique, and we have unique personalities and ways that we parent. 

Well, today, my special guest is Donna Tetreault.

Donna is a national TV parenting journalist. Currently she does work for NBC on NBC News Now ‘Modern Parenting’ segment. She has been seen on The Today Show, Dr. Phil, The Doctors, and more. 

I’m so excited for you to hear Donna talk about her best-selling book, The C.A.S.T.L.E. Method, where she simplifies for us what really matters in order to lay a strong foundation in your family.

Let’s dive in! 

What you will learn:

  • What is the CASTLE method, and how can we use it when parenting our tweens and teens?
  • Why is compassion the foundation of all the other principles?
  • How can we help our kids identify their emotions? 
  • What is the link between our self-compassion towards ourselves and how we show up with our kids?
  • How can moms develop more self-compassion?
  • What is Perceived rejection, and how does it affect the brain of our teens? 
  • Helpful and harmful expectations parents and society put on our kids.
