Episode 47: 3 Tips to Raise Responsible Kids

In this episode, I discuss the concept of being “too good of a mom” and how it creates a pattern of unhelpful kids. When we allow our kids to experience natural consequences as well as establishing expectations of what it looks like to be a “valuable” family team member, they grow up with confidence and resilience. This recipe is the best teacher of life skills for our kiddos and the bonus is that we don’t feel unappreciated, resentful or like motherhood feels like martyr-hood.

Topics Covered:

The 3 tips are:

  1. Own your role

  2. Lean out

  3. Stop fixing

Episode 46: What It Means to Be a Resume Mom

In this episode, I talk about digging into what it really looks like to be a good mom. I know this is such a loaded topic for many of us. The secret worry of most parents is that we really don’t want to screw up our most important job…raising our kids to be healthy, happy and successful (however, we choose to define that). I tell a story about “younger me” and how I thought I was checking off all the boxes on my good mom resume and how I was missing the most important one - investigating what was really underneath my child’s whiny behavior.

Topics Covered:

  • HSP - Highly Sensitive Person

  • Resume mom defined

  • Night Terrors

  • Mastermind Parenting Pillar: All behavior is communication

  • Anxiety

  • Defiant behavior

Episode 45: Raising Self Motivated Successful Kids - Growth Vs. Fixed Mindset

In this episode, I discuss the book, Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Dr. Carol Dweck.

I think you guys are going to be surprised about the nuanced ways we reinforce a fixed mindset mentality rather than encouraging our kids to truly succeed and grow. 

Topics covered:

  • Dr. Carol Dweck and the difference between fixed and growth mindset

  • Dr. Dweck invites us to dump the overpraising and everyone gets a trophy mentality - the false self-esteem movement

  • This is not about telling kids they can do anything; overpraising creates false hopes without a plan and that will lead to a fixed mindset and a dead-end

  • It’s about helping kids gain the skills and find the resources to make progress toward their goals.

  • We are all a combo of fixed and growth mindset and understanding what triggers our fixed mindset.

  • Dr. Dweck teaches us that our measurement for success and what we have thought motivated our kids to grow into achievers has been wrong

  • We’ve been very focused on external motivators and threats, which might work temporarily but ultimately sabotage long-term success

Episode 43: Christmas and Why I Love It...Even Though It’s Not My Holiday

In this episode, I talk about the Christmas spirit and how it affects me as a Jewish person. Here’s my point. We can choose to enjoy things from the sidelines sometimes. We can be happy for other people. We can ride that happiness wave as people in the supporting cast. There are times where we want to be front and center in the action and there are times where I choose to be a Jewish person riding the Christmas Spirit wave from the cheering section.

Topics covered:

  • Christmas

  • A Jewish kid growing up in South Texas perspective

  • The Christmas spirit of generosity, kindness and giving back

  • Seeing other people’s perspectives

  • FOMO and why it’s not always a bad thing

  • Creating your own rituals and allowing your kids to grow up and do the same rather than brainwashing them to do things exactly your way
