In this episode of the Peaceful Parenting Podcast, we discuss why kids try to blame somebody else, and how they often blame others when they’re hurt or upset. We explore reasons why this happens, including the fight, flight, or freeze response and a subconscious attempt to avoid difficult feelings. 

We cover tips to help parents effectively respond when a child blames someone for something. I also talk about my free and upcoming ‘Peaceful Parenting Reset’ event that helps parents better manage and empathize with their children.

We cover:

  • [3:00] Why kids want to blame somebody else
  • [5:48] Anger as a secondary emotion
  • [7:23] What we can do about blame
  • [9:23] Not needing to make everything a teachable moment
  • [12:24] How to respond when our child is blaming us
  • [17:12] Understanding our strong feelings
