Children of all ages often feel that they don't have all the freedom they want and this can be manifest in tantrums and power struggles and teenage rebellion. How do we decide what choices our children should have? How do we help them recognize the freedom they already have? How do we help them learn to make good choices?

In this episode, April and Saren discuss how and when to give our children the freedom and control they crave.  For full show notes, please visit powerofmoms.com/200
