Episode 56 - LIVE FROM NANNYPALOOZA - Fostering Autonomy and Decision Making

Children often spend their days being told exactly what to do and when to do it. If you truly put yourself in the shoes of a child and think through their day, it becomes clear that they are often not given the opportunity to make choices which leads to self-doubt within the child and power struggles between you and the child. In this episode, recorded LIVE at Nannypalooza, Cady Leinicke and I discuss ways to hold space for your nanny kids to make decisions throughout their day!
