Should we argue with our kids? How do we set boundaries with them? What kind of parent does it take to raise a strong and loving child?

The President of Love & Logic Institute, Dr. Charles Fay joins us to talk about his new book, with colleague Dr. Daniel Amen, Raising Mentally Strong Kids.

This might be one of the most light-hearted conversations we’ve ever had around what is arguably the most shaming role on the planet—parenting.

Dr. Fay provides super practical insights on raising strong and loving kids.

Here are some key quotes from this episode:

On the goal of parenting: “We bond with people who are strong and loving. We don’t bond with people who are strong but they’re cold. And we don’t bond with people who are loving but they’re permissive and wishy washy. We want to, in the best way we can, emulate God. We want to be strong, and we want to be loving.”

On cultural busyness: “Families don’t go off the rails because they do too many bad things; it’s because they do too many good things.”

On sibling rivalry: “When it comes to sibling rivalry, who owns the relationship problem? When we jump in all of the time and become the hero, it makes it worse.”

Dr. Fay helps us understand:
  • What mental hygiene looks like for our kids.
  • Why kids are going to fight the boundaries they know they need the most.
  • The two ways to not get pulled into arguing with your kids and why they are so important.
  • How to set boundaries with kids.
  • What to do with phones and technology.
  • How to manage sibling rivalry in innovative ways that help them own the relationship problem.
