Common Ground Speaker
Vicki Hoefle: Duct Tape Parenting: Step Back So Kids Can Step Up
Vicki Hoefle, author of Duct Tape Parenting, challenges parents to take a step back so their kids can step up – even if it takes a powerful adhesive to keep our mouths shut and hands firmly in laps as we watch our children make their own mistakes. She offers a perspective on what it means to be an effective, engaged parent and why giving children space to solve their own problems enables self-regulation and self-confidence.
