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 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 3: Challenging Kiddos - Do you have a strong willed one?

In this episode, we are going to discuss strong willed kids. These kids present as defiant and defensive.  Everyone seems to walk on eggshells around these kids. Most likely, these kids have a highly sensitive nervous system. Smells are smellier, tastes are more intense, tags are scratchy-er, noises are noisier.   When you have a highly sensitive nervous system, the world feels overstimulating most of the time and even more so during early childhood.
