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

To apply to be coached on the podcast

Topics covered:

  • 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
