How to Change Parenting Paradigms with an 11 Year Old?

Hey friends. We’re back with another Q&A show. This time we’re tackling the specifics about changing paradigms with a pre-teen—making dramatic changes after your children have experienced years of your old parenting style.

Some specific topics we cover:

  • Should I just make the changes or should we have a discussion about it?
  • How can we transition away from praise and rewards without him thinking we don’t “approve” of him?
  • How to set limits on bed time, screen time, dinner time, school time etc. because he struggles with self-regulation issues?
  • He won’t clean his room if we leave it up to him. How can we make sure his room is clean and there aren’t health concerns?
  • How do you feel about paying a child an allowance? (with a short rant on economics and unschooling).
