In this episode, I interview parenting expert Claire Lerner about setting boundaries with children so the parent remains in charge. The child has two choices, both of which are framed with neutrality and the child is left to choose the one they think is best. The parent is able to remove the power struggle by offering two good choices where they will get what they need and the child knows they will be following the established rules with either choice. She also shares some ideas about temperament and working with a sensitive child.
