What problem can you turn into a No-Problem today?
Part 1 - What is Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD), I share how learning about the diagnosis in 1993 shifted my career path from serving children with special abilities to supporting kids with mental health diagnosis and their parents.
This episode just barely touches on the diagnosis and is definitely a brief introduction of what can happen when infants and toddlers experience early life trauma or separation from their primary caregivers.
In Part 2 of What is Reactive Attachment Disorder, I share with you some of the symptoms and behaviors that kiddos who have suffered breaks in attachment display and you'll hear about parenting strategies and responses to avoid as well as some key things that help you connect with and understand your child.
No-Problem Parents understand that problems are meant to be dealt with and overcome and that the best way to teach your child "a lesson" is to allow them to own their problems or misbehavior and to solve the problem themselves. Our job as parents is to guide them as they make mistakes throughout their childhood and we can do so with empathy even when we are super frustrated, disappointed, or hassled by the misbehavior.
Your irritability with your kids might be at an all-time high right now – this past year has been super challenging and our patience in general has been tested to the max.
Listen in as I share how being too nice and not allowing natural or logical consequences to happen, and not following through with the little things because you just want to keep the peace can cause you to blow up in the long run.
How can you turn your child’s technology problems into a no-problem without having to be the bad guy all the time? I’ve got some ideas for ya!
I’m going to share how you can be EXCITED for your kids to use technology. I give you tips and tools for setting up your child's devices and I’m gonna help you prepare for how to respond to your kids when they mess up and technology becomes a problem. No-Problem parents view technology as a privilege AND an eventual necessity/skill they will need as they grow up.
A quick overview of what anxiety can look like in kids. I crammed A LOT of information in this short episode and only touched the surface of this very common, yet individualized natural response to stress!
When your child misbehaves, causes a problem for, or hurts someone, is your go-to response; "Tell me your sorry!" or "You better say sorry!"?
Yep! Often times it is our go-to response! I'm excited to share another option for your kids to learn the effects of their behavior on others and how allowing them to make up for their mistakes or wrongdoing, builds character and self-esteem!
Introducing the Make it Right Technique.
EP - 30 Resistance Creates Resistance - How Staying Out of the Battle & Problem Teaches Your Child to Trust You
Do you ever feel like you just can't win with your kids?
Are you constantly battling with them? Arguing? Explaining? Demanding?
Today you'll learn a bit about why resistance causes our kids to lie and misbehave even more than usual, and I share a few ideas on how you can stay out of the battle and problems which allow your kids to trust you and come to you when they make mistakes.
This episode is about the sweet story that lead me to become an entrepreneur including why I named the company Hello World and how a Goldfinch became its logo.
You'll hear how even though I prayed for God to lead the way when I was questioning my purpose and begged Him to show me what I was supposed to do when He did, I doubted Him. It took time my 8-year-old son, to point out how God made it so crystal clear.
