Parenting is one of the most difficult jobs in the world. Yet, it is also one of the most important and worthwhile jobs.

In this recorded Facebook Live conversation between Suzanne Ross and Adam Ericksen, they discuss the joys and difficulties of parenting and grandparenting. They also discuss parenting strategies that are guided by mimetic theory and Maria Montessori.

How can we navigate temper tantrums? What does it mean for a parent to be “in control”? And how can we move beyond rivalry and power struggles with our children?

These are a few of the questions Suzanne and Adam discussed in the video. You can watch the video above or on Facebook by clicking here. Skip ahead to 5 minutes and 30 seconds for the beginning of this conversation!
