This week’s episode is a solo episode with me. I share strategies you can use if your partner is not onboard with peaceful parenting.

What I’ve learned in my own peaceful parenting journey is that our partner’s resistance can oftentimes come from fear. Fear that you think they’re a bad parent, or fear that the kids won’t turn out well.

 Listen in as we talk about:

  • How to encourage peaceful parenting without shaming your partner
  • The three big ideas to help your partner consider peaceful parenting
  • How peaceful parenting tools can help you build connection with your partner
  • Two tips for intervening when your partner is having a hard time parenting

    I am experiencing a crisis in this regard. My wife yells at our oldest daughter a lot and is a terrible germaphobe.

    If our daughter touches the toilet flusher or seat, my wife shouts at me to wash her hands. But if she touches the water going down the drain, my wife loses it again and tells me to do it again. If her hands happen to just touch something else, she gets mad yet again and tells me to do it a third time. If I refuse to continue repeatedly washing her hands, my wife gets sarcastic and tells me I’ll be to blame if our daughter gets sick again.

    My wife knows I’m doing the Peaceful Parenting course, but she will not get involved. She’s even told me I wasted my money on it. She will not give me a chance to use PP techniques with our daughter because she prefers to step in and interfere by being the authoritarian and yelling and demanding. She often prefaces that with, “Being nice to her won’t work!!!”

    I tell her to chill out and calm down, but she scoffs and says things like, “Well then, YOU take care of the girls so I can get such-and-such done!!!” Sometimes I think she cares more about chores and bills than she does about our kids, especially the older daughter.

    I feel like my efforts to become a Peaceful Parent are being sabotaged, and I don’t know what to do.

    • I’m so sorry. That sounds so difficult. I hope that you find the strategies in the podcast helpful. Hang in there!

    I listened to Episode 62 for the second time, and I will take the difficult journey of trying what Daniel tried. I realized as I listened that I have not been working on my relationship with my wife enough. I realize I may or may not achieve the same results as Daniel, but I am giving myself permission to “give it a go” for four weeks. I’ll keep you posted when that month is up and let you know what happens. Thank you for Episode 62.
