Have you ever felt daunted by parenting in this pressure-laden time? Knowing how to support our kids’ mental health and academic journey as they navigate life in today’s competitive world is no simple feat, especially during their adolescent years .
Often the hardest part is striking a balance between care and concern without micromanaging or helicopter parenting. Sometimes that means allowing our children to make mistakes, which isn’t always easy!
Speaker, educational consultant, and bestselling author, Cindy Muchnick, believes that our “parent compass” can help us find that sweet spot. As a mom of four herself, Cindy is on a mission to educate parents on how to support our children as they go through life with purpose and resilience without putting too much pressure on them.
In this episode, you’ll learn:

- Why creating a like-minded community of other parents is key
- How to give your kids a voice

- The one thing you can do to show your children you believe in them
This episode will help you forge a positive relationship with your teens, appreciate the kids you have in front of you (not the ones you want to inauthentically create), and set them up for success beyond the nest!
