Ladies and gentlemen of the parenting community, let me tell you something that you are already fully aware of; being a parent is tough.

Of course, we knew that going in, right? We asked ourselves the same questions, "Can we afford this? What if he/she doesn't like me?", etc. We never really pondered the everyday conversations we will have with our kids.

Take, for example, the normal conversations that can go array. What seems like a simple request and acceptance becomes a whole ordeal where both parties have their feet dug into the sand with no movement in sight. The stubbornness you probably had, or still have,  that you didn't think your children may acquire begins to rear its ugly head.

I discussed dealing with stubbornness on the first episode of the Parenting Chronicles, which is a new video blog series on Live 95.9, where we can share stories, discuss different scenarios and learn from them.

Check out the first installment of the series. If you have topics you want to discuss, stories of your own you want to share, leave them in the comments, or email Enjoy, and please subscribe to our YouTube channel.
