Episode 56: What If My Kid is Different and Cannot Be Disciplined?

In this episode, I talk about ineffective parenting strategies being at the root for many parents with strong-willed kids. This is a very complicated and difficult topic because there is usually quite a bit of shame and blame on the scene. Being a parent is vulnerable. When you have the courage to get curious about WHY things feel so outta control in your household, well that’s when you’ll start to turn it around. Because trust me, I mean it when I say, I developed Mastermind Parenting specifically for these kids. The bonus is that Mastermind Parenting is effective with all kids - not just your most challenging one. Your situation will get better because you listened to this episode. This is step one.

Topics Covered:

  • Strong-willed kids and what’s really going on with the dictator dance

  • Shame/Blame/Vulnerability based on the work of Brene Brown

  • Power struggles and what’s really going on

  • Mastermind Parenting Pillar: All behavior is communication

  • Dr. Ross Greene - "Kids do well if they can."

  • Ineffective Parenting

  • Marie Forleo - “Everything is figure-out-able”

Episode 55: What If This “New Age” Parenting Doesn’t Work with My Kid?

In this episode, I break down the reason why the more mod parenting strategies are probably not working for you. It’s usually a fairly straightforward tweak that needs to be made and not a hard problem to diagnose. If you’ve been questioning why these techniques seem to only work in theory but not in real life, I think you’ll find this discussion eye-opening.

Topics Covered:

  • Strong-willed kids and what they need to thrive

  • The Dictator Dance

  • Not throwing the baby out with the bathwater

  • Not all of the old school methods are bad and we can learn

  • EMDR therapy

  • Pack Leadership and Assertiveness

  • Empathy

  • Structure and helping kids feel safe in the world

Episode 38: Thanksgiving and Having an Attitude of Gratitude

In this episode I discuss what gratitude really means to me as a mom and a person. I believe the ultimate gratitude practice is believing your strong willed child happened “for” rather than “to” you and I walk you through an exercise about how to do that.

Topics:

  • Hedonic Adaptation

  • Gratitude is a practice that can be cultivated and directly links to happiness

  • Gratitude affects many areas of your life in positive ways - personality, health, emotional, social and career

  • Strong willed kids happen “for” not “to” you

  • “Future You” exercise to get you into a gratitude practice

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 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.
