A Change is Gonna Come

“Resolutions are a wonderful thing if we can keep them, but many resolutions go by the wayside because we have not done anything different with our mindset.”
(Monica Johnson)


Over the last couple of days, we’ve posted a couple of answers to some vexing parenting questions. One was written, the other video. I sincerely hope they were helpful. There will be dozens more coming next week…and eventually hundreds…on the new Pause Platform.


I love answering these questions. But what I love even more is not answering parents’ questions. What I truly love most is helping parents learn to answer their own questions. That’s where the real benefit lies…learning to pursue our own solutions in ways that reflect our strongest desires and principles.


And that takes changing our mindset.


In many ways, that is the whole mission of ScreamFree—changing how we think about our relationships from the inside out.


For Parenting, this means:

  • moving from controlling our kids’ behavior to controlling our own emotions instead
  • dropping our responsibility for our kids, and ramping up our responsibilities to them
  • no longer raising kids who need protection, but learning to raise amazing adults through preparation


As you learn more about the new Pause Platform in the days ahead, please know this: Everything we’ve created is designed to help you find real answers, and actionable solutions, to all of your parenting problems. And sooner than you think, as you adopt more and more of the ScreamFree mindset, you’ll be coming up with your own (and offering them to others!)


Peace begins with pause,
