How to Connect with Your Kids with Roma Khetarpal

Parents today face extreme pressure to get everything exactly right, which can make parenting feel so stressful. In her book, The ”Perfect” Parent: 5 Tools for Using Your Inner Perfection to Connect with Your Kids, author Roma Khetarpal offers new clarity and a parenting approach that’s rooted in using our inner parenting perfection to nurture a strong, communicative connection with our kids.

Drawing from the fields of personal growth and emotional intelligence and distilling cutting-edge scientific research, Khetarpal helps parents strengthen their bond with their kids and enjoy the ride along the way.

In this episode of 60 Mindful Minutes, Roma and I discuss:

  • Exploring what we gain and how we grow from our role as parents;
  • How to create a good relationship with our kids;
  • How good communication is at the core of a great relationship with our kids;
  • Advice for setting boundaries and rules.

I loved this conversation and can’t wait to share it with you.
