How To Not Lose It As a Parent with Kirsten Cobabe

Easily one of the more frustrating and yet very normal things about raising a teen is the fact that they're going to be doing things seemingly out of nowhere that push your buttons, to get a reaction out of you, or ultimately (and commonly) be a complete jerk to you for completely unknown reasons! This week we're bringing you an interview with one of our favourite guest experts, counsellor, family advocate and coach Kirsten Cobabe (the Teen Whisperer!) breaks it down for us in the best possible way! If you don't follow Kirsten already, find her kirstencobabe.


How do we as parents learn not to personalize those reactions and keep our cool when our kids are being so disrespectful?

  • 61. Letting Go Of Our Boys

    28:07
    This week, we discussed our summer hopes and plans. As our kids are getting older, they aren't as carefree. They need to be entertained, and that responsibility falls on us. Unfortunately, it's a situation we created because we are so darn fun to hang out with. But, when one of our kids came to us and said they wanted to go to camp, it triggered some anxiety. It's not that it's better for them to be home; it's really hard to let them go!Want our podcasts sent straight to your phone?

  • 57. The Problem with Parenting

    36:51
    Here's the problem with parenting: you never know how badly you've messed up until it's too late. We have great kids, but we can only say "for now." We aren't seeing any red flags, "for now". We've talked to so many people who had teenagers on one trajectory in the early years, only to see it change dramatically. So the verdict is still out when you have seven kids between us. Nat is hoping for one rebel; Cat wants nothing to do with that.Want our podcasts sent straight to your phone?

  • 53. Online Is A Gross Place

    28:56
    There's a huge controversy online involving a mom and one of her children. The entire account is focused on her daughter. Many people are saying, 'Save the daughter.' But when you see who is commenting, it's disturbing. Where is the line between parents making money off of their children? And then there's Reddit. Everything is there. Everyone is anonymous. There is so much abuse and negativity. There is no censor. You can find anything. It's just gone public, which is ironic for the users who started there because they all claim to hate social media!Want our podcasts sent straight to your phone?
