Ep. 38: We Turned Out Okay with Karen Lock Kolp

A lot of what I teach is helping parents understand their children as people. The best way to be happy in your parenting is to recognize that your child is a person and to respect them and expect that respect in return.

In Episode 38, I have a fun chat with Karen Lock Kolp, M.Ed. of the We Turned Out Okay website and podcast. Karen is an early childhood development expert and parent coach.

On her website and podcast, Karen helps worried and hovering parents by bring reassuring, helpful advice and conversations.

In this episode, we talked about many things, including:

• The similarities between parenting toddlers and teens (and how much we both like teenagers).

• How some kids need “a longer runway.”

• Calming down your family’s evening routine
