Right now, we are all in uncharted territory. As sheltering in place with our families continues, Conscious Discipline Certified Instructor Amy Speidel sat down with Your Teen Magazine to discuss how to coexist as smoothly as possible in this unique situation.

Amy Speidel and Your Teen‘s Susan Borison cover topics including:

  • Convincing teenagers to follow the rules
  • Tools we can use to navigate conflict
  • Co-parenting
  • Maintaining perspective

Speidel shares encouragement like, “Just remember that 20 percent of the time of your day you can be nailing it and the rest can be mucky as hell. But that 20 percent of the time is going to be what matters the most. Hold onto that…Don’t minimize those moments. Those are big moments that will hold you together.”

She is now a national presenter for Conscious Discipline and a certified parent coach.
