In this episode 26 we cover the concept of commitment. While most people attribute commitment to a romantic relationship or marriage, we are discussing the commitment to effective and mindful parenting. It’s about committing to doing what it takes to have a good relationship with your children, commit to learn new concepts and be open.
Unless you are being forced to listen to this podcast, you are already making some commitment that the topic of effective parenting and creating a wonderful relationship with your children is important. But why doesn’t everyone commit to that? Why are some going through the motions and okay with not making any substantial effort in this area. Here are a few reasons it seems people don’t commit:
- Fear of failure
- Fear of being rejected
- Fear of making the wrong decision
- Trust issues
- Not enough time?
- Not knowing what to do
What keeps people from committing to wanting a better relationship with their children? Why do people not seek out better ways to handle situations? How to connect better with their children? Alan and Jason discuss the topic of commitment and answer some of these questions.
