Why do partners struggle with peaceful parenting? 

How can we help our male partners become open and receptive to this type of parenting? Why are there negative connotations associated with it to begin with?

Joining me for this conversation is DeAntwann “DJ” Johnson. DJ is a husband, father, author, mentor, coach, counselor, and sports statistician. He grew up in the Indiana foster care system and yet despite that, has gone on to lead a successful, and fulfilling life. 

We cover:

  • [3:05] Why DJ wanted to raise his son in a peaceful way
  • [12:50] How to help dads with peaceful parenting
  • [23:10] The fear behind buying into peaceful parenting 
  • [31:35] Why we can’t expect kids to listen to us right away
  • [38:10] Advice for parents whose partners are not on board
  • [44:50] What DJ would say to his younger father self

Before spending nine years in the foster care system, DJ suffered child abuse, domestic abuse, and emotional trauma. At one point, he wanted to end his life, but he realized that he was on this earth for a purpose. DJ fulfills that purpose by using his experiences to not only help establish relationships with the students he serves, but he helps parents better connect with their teenagers. DJ specializes in helping parents bridge the communication gap between them and their child to ensure that their child has room to be the best version of themself.
