There will always be a time in which we as parents feel challenged with our children, to motivate them to get off the couch with laziness, or they are talking back to you disrespectufully, or lying… you get the point.
We’ve been there, at least I have. And you may feel a little lost in all of it.
My guest, Kimball Lewis and I talk all about how to empower parents to overcome those tough times with our children.
Kimball Lewis is the CEO of EmpoweringParents.com. In addition to his leadership and management roles, he contributes as an editor, a homeschooling expert, and a parent coach. He resides in Orlando, Florida, with his wife and two teenage sons.
