Episode 33: The Sibling Fighting Tool

In this episode, I share a Facebook Live I did in my private Mastermind Parenting Basics group where I role play how to resolve a sibling fight for a mom of 2 girls, ages 4 and 7. I’ve never taught my sibling fighting tool publicly before and I think you’ll find this episode particularly helpful. It’s honestly, the best way to resolve sibling squabbles while also teaching your kids high level conflict resolution skills that they’ll use out in the real world. It’s really good stuff if I do say so myself!

Topics covered:

  • Sibling fights

  • Empathy

  • Calming down

  • The Calm Down Corner

  • Conflict Resolution

  • Assertiveness training

  • Seeing your strong willed child’s perspective and conveying it productively

Episode 29: How To Respond When Your Kid’s "Outta Control"

In this episode, I speak to a criticism/clarification made by a podcast listener re: how to respond to a kiddo in full blown “outta control” meltdown mode. I talk about being firm and assertive and how that looks in REAL life if you have a child prone to explosive behavior in an unregulated state and when to effectively use empathy.

Topics covered:

  • My response to a podcast listener’s criticism

  • Empathy and when it’s effective

  • Pack Leadership and Assertiveness

  • Strong willed kids and what actually helps them calm down when they’re in full blown meltdown mode

  • Creating a safe space for the child to calm down and why any attempt to try and talk them out of their feelings is futile when you’re in the heat of the moment

Episode 28: 3 Reasons Why Your Convos are Unproductive

In this episode, I talk about why conversations are often unproductive and how to change that. We often think we’re having a conversation but it’s really just a lecture in disguise. A conversation that is centered around a parent’s agenda to “teach” a lesson is really a lecture. I think you’ll find this episode enlightening to say the least...it may even slightly piss you off. Love ya!

Topics covered:

  • How do I get my child to do ____? This is a sure sign of control and always leads to an unproductive lecture

  • You’re in The Parent Gap and thinking that if only your child would learn the things you want to teach them then they’d behave better and life would be smooth sailing

  • “You do you.” Why are you so triggered? Why are you attempting to control your child? What are you missing? What’s your child’s perspective? Did you really dig in and begin the conversation by seeing their perspective and putting your agenda aside?

  • You didn’t actively listen. You jumped into problem solving and missed this crucial stepl

  • Recap: The 3 reasons your convos are unproductive:

  1. Control and a hidden agenda

  2. Lecturing instead of active listening

  3. You’re in The Parent Gap

Episode 27: Moms, Girls, Body Image Stuff - A REAL Convo with Dana Suchow

In this episode, I spoke with speaker and educator, Dana Suchow about female body image issues, eating disorders, diet culture and how to productively talk about this sensitive topic with our girls. We got down and dirty and had a rich convo. I think you’re going to find it super interesting and possibly take a pause to think about some of the “elephant in the room” topics we dug deep into. Needless to say, I thought we had a riveting conversation. Enjoy!

Topics covered:

  • Diet culture

  • Eating disorders

  • Food restriction and how it activates the scarcity signal in our “lizard”/primal brain

  • Gender binary (I didn’t know what this was until this interview)

  • Body awareness

  • Self awareness

  • Social media and what part it plays in our girl’s body image issues and suggestions for how to handle it

  • Moms and daughters and how moms accidentally exacerbate the situation when we see our girls struggling with something similar to what we’ve gone through

  • Modeling the behavior you want for your daughter when it comes to a healthy relationship with food

  • The role of the media in affecting our female body image basis

Dana Suchow - Speaker and Educator

Since overcoming Bulimia, Binge Eating Disorder and exercise compulsion that resulted in permanent injuries, Dana Suchow has become an expert in the field of body image and eating disorder prevention. Offering a nonclinical and holistic approach, Dana will teach you how to put your child on a path towards body love, empowerment and self-acceptance.

In 2014 Dana founded #MyBodyStory, an ongoing storytelling series created to uplift girl's and women's voices that so often go unheard.

Episode 26: Real Coaching With Randi on 3 Strong Willed Kid Scenarios

In this episode, I include the Q&A portion of a masterclass I recently taught that I think many of you will relate to (especially those of you with a strong willed one).

Topics covered:

  • A strong willed and sensitive kid that ignores consequences and refuses to change his behavior or see the other kid’s perspective.
  • An oppositional defiant teenage boy who ignores the house rules and is taking part in risky teenage behavior.
  • The “gifted” child who’s a stellar athlete and an A student - how to help “that” child strive for excellence and be their best.

Episode 24: Real Coaching with Randi

In this episode with podcast listener and SAHM, Heather, we dive into the secret worry most of us can relate to..."Am I screwing this up – are my kids going to struggle because I don’t know what the hell I’m doing?!?"

Heather is a perfect example of an awesome mama that doubts herself and her abilities as a mom. She is a former early childhood teacher as well as a mom that reads parenting books, listens to podcasts and has even taken a parenting class. However, she still often feels at a loss about what to do when her kids are misbehaving.

As you’ll hear, it’s all about mastering her mind to dissolve the limiting belief that “she is not a natural leader”. I think many of you’ll relate to Heather’s honesty and will gain a lot from this coaching session. Enjoy!

Topics covered:

  • Negative spouses and negative kids

  • Fix it mode and control

  • Exhaustion after a long day with littles and feeling responsible as a mom for things not going smoothly...and the need to defend our kids as “normal” to their own dad

  • Bedtime battles

  • When the kids only want Mommy and Daddy gets his feelings hurt

  • The bedtime window 7:30-8:30 and the 2nd wind when you miss it

  • Sensitive nervous system kids

  • Pack Leadership energy

  • Why pack leadership/assertive communication doesn’t come naturally for most women

  • Backtalk and disrespect

  • Why we usually handle these negative behaviors all wrong and make it mean something that it doesn’t

  • Leaning into the suckage when you’re disrupting a pattern

  • Sleep training

  • Role playing the productive convo establishing the new bedtime routine with Heather’s four year old
