Natural consequences are the inevitable result of a person’s actions and I explain how enabling gets in the way of this.
The natural consequences of negative behavior are typically negative. However, many people buffer, block or filter the consequences of other’s behavior by enabling them. Enabling is when we fix, solve, or make the consequences for someone’s behavior go away. This episode will give you an understanding what natural consequences are, how they work and how to allow them.
