Podcast: Dealing with “Sass Mouth”

October 18, 2012 | Happiness Matters Podcast | 0 comments

Do your kids talk back to you?

Rona and I take another listener question, this time from Nina, who writes: “Do you have any tips for handling ‘back talk’ from kids? We are at our wits’ end with our 8-year-old boy and not quite sure how to respond to his words and reactions.  I definitely take it personally and feel like it’s my fault he [talks back to me], but he tells me he learns these things at school.  Sometimes he can be a complete angel and then other times the complete opposite.”

Please check out my podcast with Rona Renner either here on the Greater Good website, or here on iTunes.  Happy listening!
