On Tuesday March 19th, you’re invited to ask Vicki Hoefle YOUR questions about surviving and thriving through

the Messiest Week of Your Life: Do Nothing Say Nothing.

About DO NOTHING SAY NOTHING (#DNSN)

In Vicki Hoefle’s book, Duct Tape Parenting: A Less is More Approach to Raising Responsible, Respectful and Resilient Kids, parents are encouraged to participate in an activity in which they DO NOTHING & SAY NOTHING (literally) for 5 days. During this time period, parents are asked to observe what their children can, can’t or will not do on their own. Not surprisingly, most parents discover the house turns to a pigsty, kids lose and forget a variety of items, stress increases and the general feelings of chaos set in quickly.

On the other hand, many parents (once they let go and commit) pleasantly find themselves on a vacation from power struggles, arguments, micromanaging, nagging and so forth. Despite the mess- this is usually a very nice feeling for parents once they have permission to just ZIP IT . Similarly, parents uncover something else: natural consequences, children’s undiscovered abilities, and conflict resolutions suddenly appear in the absence of a micrmanaging mom or dad. This surprising shift provides the welcomed beacon of hope that this may, after all be worth it! And it is. But first you have to survive it, right? That’s why you want to REGISTER FOR THE WEB EVENT!

The “Less is More” Approach Takes Work!

Many parents have discovered that this experiment is far more difficult than envisioned. In theory, it sounds easy to Do Nothing, Say Nothing–but is it? Heck NO. That’s why we’re here for YOU. This is your journey and Vicki will provide answers to your QUESTIONS.

Hang in there if you’re stuck. Listen and ask your questions. At the end of this, you’ll have a better understanding of what to do next, why it’s ok that the house looks like a bomb went off (see below) and how this is GOOD for you and your family.
