Episode #48–What do you Do When Extended Family is Wreaking Havoc on your Nucleus Family?

Hello and welcome!

I’m so grateful that you are here and I am excited to talk about a topic that I get a lot of questions about.  I want you to know that it is a common problem that many families struggle with.  Some, struggle to balance getting along with their extended family and showing their extended family respect and value, while at the same time, making sure that extended family do not take a role in their parenting that is not for them to take.

You are the parent.  You and your spouse are the ones that should be and must be making decisions for how you are going to raise your children, discipline your children, nurture your children, teach your children and influence your children.  It is you that must make these decisions.

Oh sure.  Like me, you will seek advice, council and wisdom from people you respect and trust to help you along the way, but it will be when you seek that advice.  It still needs to be your decision who you allow to influence you on your parenting journey.

Today, I will remind parents of their role as the parent, and setting boundaries with extended family.  Listen NOW!!
