SFL Episode 48: On Parenting

This week, one for the hardworkin' parents out there, as Glenn Murphy and wellness guru Howard Jacobson address the challenges, similiarities, and reciprocal benefits of Systema and parenting. Along the way, we delve into:

  • what Systema can teach us about being good parents
  • command and conquer vs engage and redirect parenting
  • the role of movement in managing overwhelming emotions
  • avoiding the traps of stubbornness and pride
  • why too much praise is harmful to kids, and to Systema trainees
