Episode 19: Ralphie Jacobs – Look for the Good. You have the Power to Change your Behavior as the Parent.

Ralphie Jacobs is a positive parenting expert and shares “life changing parenting truths” through her courses over at Simply on Purpose and through her wildly popular instagram. She is the mother of four and has a big passion for arming parents with powerful parenting skills that will change your home.

In this episode we talk about being a safe parent and what that means, families having different boundaries – there is no one right way, and the most important take away from this episode in my opinion is that we can’t “fix” our kids but we can take charge of our own behavior and that’s where it all starts.
