Ep. 94 - How to be the Safest Place for Our Kids with Vivek Patel


As parents one of the greatest ways to achieve the connection and understanding we strive for with our children is by becoming a safe place for them. 

Conscious parenting coach, Vivek Patel speaks to this today on the Fresh Start Family Show. 

Through stories of his own childhood experiences, his journey as a father & reflections on his experiences working with many families to bring healing … Vivek inspires us deeply to focus on connections first & foremost in our homes. 

Listen in as Wendy, Terry & Vivek speak to an important question all parents need to be asking themselves …  “If we want kids to not lie to us, we have to make it safe for them to tell the truth,”

What if you could be an effective, firm & kind parent WITHOUT relying on fear, force, bribery & rewards?
