In this episode with podcast listeners, Julia and Brooke, I cover many topics that I think many of you will relate.
To apply to be coached on the podcast.
Strong willed 8 year old with a sensitive nervous system who is super affected by lack of sleep and sugar
Younger brother with easier temperament looks up to his older brother and mom worries that he is learning problematic behavior from big brother
Dr. Bruce Lipton and Epigenetics
Subconscious programming during the first 7 years of life and living in a Theta brainwave state
Why mind mastery is the way to reprogram our adult brain
Why strong willed kids propel us to learn how to reprogram our brains and become our biggest gifts
Easy kids don’t present enough of a challenge for us to take the time to learn something new…wouldn’t it be more fun to binge watch Orange is the New Black rather than listening to parenting podcasts?!?
It’s human to enjoy our easiest kids more and this has nothing to do with how much we love each of your children
Sibling rivalry and why it often does have to do with jealousy because the strong willed ones know that we enjoy easier sibling more
How our dynamic from growing up shows up as triggers when we see our kids display that same dynamic
Mediation tool, my conflict resolution tool, to handle sibling rivalry…”victim first”
The #1 mistake is going to the aggressor first. Ex: “Stop hurting your brother”.
What you focus on grows
Focus on the healing not the hurting by going to the “victim” first rather than the aggressor
Strong willed 3 year old
Less is more and quality over quantity…why Brooke nailed it by saying no to doing all the “best mom ever” stuff on the weekends
Highly sensitive people and Elaine Aron’s work
Anxiety and learning to see it as your superpower
