"Do as I Say, Not as I Do"

The phrase “Do as I say, not as I do” is ineffective. And even if we don’t actually say those words…we might be unintentionally parenting from this type of mindset. In this episode, you’ll be challenged to consider 5 areas of your life where you could use some fine-tuning—making your actions match your words.

I give an example of how our family started working together to make our health a priority by signing up for virtual races. Check out The Conqueror challenges to see how you can make health a top priority for everyone in your family…not just your kids. Use discount code: NMO_FOC70 for 70% off a 1st time race! Offer good until Dec 1, 2022.  Get rid of the guilt of parenting, the “do as I say, not as I do” position, and unite your family in a common goal instead.
