In this episode of the Peaceful Parenting Podcast, Corey joins me to discuss how to handle situations where extended family members criticize or disagree with your peaceful parenting approach. 

We talk about educating family members about the principles and science behind peaceful parenting, setting clear boundaries, and understanding the importance of self-confidence and self-compassion. We also emphasize the importance of critical thinking, open-mindedness, and flexibility in some parenting beliefs, such as children’s diet and screen time when visiting grandparents. 

We cover:
