209: My Kids Don’t Respect Me!


My Husband is in Love With Someone Else

First of all, I don’t even have kids to disrespect me, so this could be a really short podcast because what do I know?! Sure, I know what it’s like to be disrespected by exceedingly short people; it is so frustrating because I can just pick them up and drop them on the bed while they giggle relentlessly like bedtime is some big game instead of the end of my childcare shift, which can’t come fast enough. 

I am the person in charge of them, the boss, and everyone knows you have to respect your boss—everyone but kids, that is. Food has to be consumed, bodies washed, pajamas put on, teeth brushed, stories read and lights turned off. 

And kids don’t seem to respect my authority about these things. Nagging, begging, pleading, and even bribing don’t work very well. I can’t make them obedient, which is very stressful. 

So on today’s episode of The Empowered Wife Podcast, we’re unpacking what to do when your kids don’t respect you.

  • I’ll share how numerous women have shifted the culture at their house so their kids were excited to do something that made mom happy. 
  • Plus, there was no joy or laughter in my guest Julia’s marriage, but there were plenty of arguments. Then she did a bunch of experiments and they worked! Today she feels a weight has been lifted and her marriage feels intimate and fun. She’s going to tell us what she did so you can do it too.
