Allison Livingston is the founder of 5 Steps to Connect with Your Strong-Willed Child. She started learning Mindful Parenting tools in 2005 to navigate power struggles and challenging behaviors with her oldest strong-willed child.
Her extensive education + experience in Nonviolent Communication and work as a Certified Mediator gives her a unique mindset in relation to BIG emotions and power struggles.
In this episode, she shares her journey (in hindsight) of discovering she was raising a strong-willed child, the counterintuitive trick to connection, and 3 things she wished she'd known sooner.
Her advice (among many gems shared) includes befriending your emotions, counting your shoulds, and taking action now.
