Jarrod Hanning is a father, husband and mindset coach for high level entrepreneurs. For the past 10 years, he has been working and his job is working with high level entrepreneurs and successful business owners to help them actually work less and teach them how to optimize their time and also leverage the proper mindset to go out and live a fulfilling life.
In this episode we talk about building and cultivating an environment where our kids can come and talk to us without instilling fear to the point where they shutdown on us, but also being able to teach them lessons of boundaries and consequences around those actions. I challenge Jarrod a lot in how he approaches certain teachings. I also share a couple of stories of things that I’ve gone through lately with my teenages and how I’ve gone about that. Parenting is not perfect, but I think you get get a lot of clarity from this episode.
The goal of today’s show is to have you take away learnings to better cultivate an environment where kids feel safe sharing things with you.
