Steph interviews Michelle Kenney Carlson about the Hand in Hand Parenting methodology. This is an alternative perspective to parenting that doesn’t involve bribes, threats, rewards and punishment. Learn why connection is one of Michelle’s top strategies for navigating hard feelings, how our childhood experiences influence the way we parent, and tools you can implement today to create a more relaxed household.

Enjoy the listen! You can find us on iTunes, Stitcher or Spotify. We’d love to hear your thoughts on Instagram or Facebook.

Topics Discussed:

  • What is positive/connective parenting?
  • The science behind this approach
  • Considerations for punishments and rewards
  • Ways to encourage cooperation and navigate tantrums
  • Connective Parenting Tools that you can implement right away

Show Notes:

Michelle lives in Los Angeles with her two girls 9 and 12. Before becoming a Hand in Hand certified instructor in 2015, she worked for 12 years in public schools as a teacher and counselor. She also served as an adjunct professor in the Department of Education instructing in the teacher credentialing program. None of which prepared her to be a mom. After years of consequences, bribes and star charts she found Hand in Hand parenting, created by Patty Wipfler. It reshaped the relationship she shares with her daughters, and she credits it with changing her life.
