Description

Do you wonder if your kids are going to learn to make good choices or find success in their lives? Do you worry that they will develop great character, with confidence and compassion? We feel those same concerns. Parenting is a blast, but also one of the hardest things you’ll ever do! Kent and Amy Bowler are real parents with real struggles and real solutions. In this podcast we share some of our family adventures (and mis-adventures) to highlight powerful paradigms and simple solutions that we have put to the test to create a home that is a sanctuary from a troubled world. A place where children feel safe, trusted and loved. A place where they learn to take on real responsibility and to stand in their greatness as they make a difference for good in the world. Take your family to the next level—This is where Joy lives!

Paralyzed By Fear
00:16:56

There are a million things to be afraid of, but as parents, fear gets amplified a million times over since we are responsible for another human being (or two or three)!

What if my child doesn't make any new friends?

What if my child fails her class?

What if my child doesn't get in to college?

What if my child fails to launch?

And yet the solution is simple.  With a small shift in focus we can move past the fear and keep our families on track.

This is where joy lives!

Correction Without Condemnation
00:17:58

Our natural inclination in fulfilling our parenting duty to correct and instruct our children often includes the inclusion of criticism.

Whether it be intended or not, verbal or not, our children feel our disapproval and disappointment at a core level.

Haim Ginott claims that:

Parental criticism is unhelpful... children who are regularly criticized learn to condemn themselves and others.

So what do we do to remove condemnation from our correction?

The Curse of the Covid Overdose (Too Much Screen Time)
00:13:54

Managing our kids is oh so much easier when we bring devices into the picture.

That has been especially true during this covid-era.

The fact of the matter though is that our children will actually be happier when we as a family have boundaries to guide our usage.

Getting Rid Of Whining & Moaning
00:16:56

Perhaps the most annoying part of parenting is putting up with the persistent complaining that seems to come with children.

Is it possible to put that perpetual aggravation behind us?

For good?

It may seem like a pipe dream, but the reality is there is a lot we can do to reduce the rate of moaning and groaning, the mumbling and murmuring, the discord and discontent, and replace it with positive, loving communication in our homes!

Humpty Dumpty - Part 2
00:11:42

At times our families can look and feel a lot like the old nursery rhyme about Humpty Dumpty.  Someone has fallen, made a real mess out of things, and it seems like there is no hope for happiness ever again.

Even though the little ditty that we can all repeat from memory ends dismally, as Parenting Heroes, we can put our families back together again!  Even better than they were before!

I quit
00:20:35

Do you ever get to the point where  you literally feel like you can no longer even find the strength to breathe?

Parenting is the hardest thing we will ever do in this lifetime—and just when we start to feel like we're on top of it—out of nowhere a storm so severe hits that we are immediately knocked over, quickly disoriented, and lost for what to do next.

Here is what we have learned that helps us to find our feet and keep moving forward.

Driving 3 days straight only to get MRSA
00:14:07

One of our old family traditions consisted primarily of driving days on end across the US to "spend time with family" to then turn around and drive for days on end again, except on the return trip now there's nothing to look forward to so it feels even longer....

Is that kind of sacrifice and headache and cost and time actually worth it?

My Butt As A Dog's Best Friend
00:12:49

As parents we love to pretend like we're all that.

That we've totally got everything under control.

Well, the more that we can face  the music and admit our imperfections, the better equipped our kids will become to face life!

To make the point, we tell a rather embarrassing story.  Don't miss this one!

Seeing The Future
00:14:14

Children can be short-sighted, only seeing the here and now, and as such get easily overwhelmed.

The fact of the matter though is  that sometimes we as parents have a hard time seeing anything for our children beyond their current struggles.

I Wish I Was Superman!
00:12:21

How many times a week do we hear: "I wish I could..." or, "I wish I could have..." or, "couldn't we do that Mom"?

It seems like we get a constant barrage of requests for the unreasonable.  

Why can't our kids just grow up already!

What if we could learn to meet them where they are, validate them, show them that we really do care and that we actually hear them as well, ALL while still holding firmly to boundaries and reality.

And have some fun to boot!

What CAN We Do?
00:17:12

The pressures of the world would see every last hope and dream for joy and happiness in our families absolutely crushed.

If we don't choose to stand up as parents, then the lifeblood will be quickly squeezed out of our families.

The good news is regardless of how hard life gets, or how many external restrictions or failed expectations stack up against us, we always have a choice.

Listen to learn simple steps to take to breath life back into your home!

What Every Struggling Teenager Needs

To make it worse, most teens beat themselves up pretty hard for their mistakes and blunders. 

So what can we give them that will carry the day, even when we're not with them???

Totally Off Track In Tokyo
00:17:32

As adults, most of the time we feel like we've got everything under control.

But that isn't the case for our kids.

In fact we need to learn to become aware of when they are losing hope so that we can give them the help needed to soldier on.

To make it all clear, we give a story that acts as an allegory for what our children are oftentimes going through on a regular basis.

Secret Girlfriends & Boundaries
00:15:48

Sometimes, in the interest of a perceived greater good for our children, we start spouting edicts left and right.  And oftentimes, when in that mode, we actually end up pushing our children deeper into the behavior we were trying to save them from with our dictatorial decrees.

In this episode we talk about a better way to establishing boundaries in our homes.

Oh Yeah... I Do That Too...
00:12:51

We oftentimes find ourselves getting on our kids, for the exact same things we do ourselves, or have certainly done in the past.  Recognizing that can help us to find more patience and to put ourselves in their shoes and be their friend and advocate rather than their accuser.

Humpty Dumpty
00:12:25

We work so hard to build our ideal life, to create a picture perfect home.  The way it should be.  The way we've always wanted it to be.

And then, it all comes crashing down.  Out of nowhere we're thrown a curveball we don't know how to deal with.  And all of a sudden life sucks again.

Using a fun story of what we've seen in our home the last several months, we teach the tool to keep our family from falling off the bandwagon when we encounter rocky roads.

Forging Connections in the Face of Frustration

Stuck on a Mountain with a 10 year old
00:16:27

Me and my boy found ourselves near the top of a serious mountain, stuck, and only digging ourselves into a deeper hole as we did all the wrong things.

Sometimes, our natural instincts do the same thing to us as parents, digging us into deeper and deeper pits when we thought we were "solving" problems.

What key bit information and understanding are we missing to pull us out of such a trap?

Is This What We Signed Up For???
00:12:55

Parenting can be pretty poopy sometimes.

Other times it can be rather rewarding.

Oftentimes the only difference is what we choose to do with our choices.  Meaning that the same exact action, even when repeated a thousand billion times, can be a total catastrophe mentally, or a cumulatively consequential act of beautiful consecration.  And you guessed it!  We get to choose!

There must be a long tradition spread across humankind of sincere self-deprecation.

Mistakes & Motivation
00:15:47

As our children grow older, we sometimes forget that the way we need to help them changes as they develop and grow, to the degree that we oftentimes end up discouraging and disabling them.

Learn what you can do differently when your children make mistakes, so that they become the beautiful, amazing people you know they are capable of becoming.

You Are A Parenting Hero
00:16:04

Each of us will go through times that challenge us to the very core. Times that are dark, distressing, difficult, disastrous, depressing, distasteful, and deeply unsettling. Many of us are in such times now.

Even though every one of us is just a regular, everyday, normal kind of person, the trick is to see yourself as enough. To see yourself as a parenting hero.

How to Motivate Our Kids
00:18:38

This is one of the questions we hear the most from frustrated parents: “How do I motivate my child?” In fact, our 12-year-old daughter just asked us a few days ago what we had done as parents to raise up kids who all get things done. The answer is multi-faceted, and starts with some of the paradigm shifts that we talked about in earlier episodes (see 1 and 2 for example), and in helping each child to discover their genius. It means even encouraging your 6-year-old when he wants to literally climb the walls!

How to Get More Time in the Day
00:16:11

Who doesn’t need more time? Especially with our families.  With all the demands on our time, how do we find the time we want to spend time with our family? The secret is our focus - as we choose to appropriately focus on the most important people in our lives, we begin to instill in them self-confidence and trust that things will work out. As that trust grows in our home, the stress of not having enough time dwindles down, and we find joy in each other’s successes and in our struggles as we become more cohesive as a family and empowered to accomplish the most important things.

The #1 Parenting Secret
00:19:54

The day we were told to our face by a professional that we were blowing it as parents was a really hard day. We thought that we were doing a good job, we were certainly trying our best. Eventually we came to understand what he was trying to tell us, that the disappointment we felt in our son for his poor choices was hindering his progress.  

Listen in to hear how we reframed the way we saw our son to let go of the judgment we were holding against him so that he could recognize his own greatness and overcome.
