The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 33: Our Home Environment and Parenting with Ashley Strong



Hi there and welcome to The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast! Today I am excited to chat about all things related to our parenting, our children, and the environment with Ashley Strong. Ashley is the founder of Home Intentionally, a professional organizer, coach, and most importantly, mom of two toddlers. She helps busy moms create space in their homes, minds, and schedules so they can do more of what they love. 

I really love talking about the environment and how it affects our parenting, but I think we don’t realize the type of impact that it has. I’ve talked behavior about how the environment can affect our children’s behavior: check out Episode 13 to hear more about why a child may misbehave in one environment and not misbehave in another.

Our homes, where things are placed, if it’s cluttered, unorganized, or chaotic can potentially affect our lives, including our parenting behavior. Environments can have a great impact on us… good or bad. If we are stressed because our homes are disorganized and chaotic, we may end up finding ourselves in “survival mode.” This stress then in turn can affect our parenting and, thus, our children’s behavior. 

Christmas is around the corner and the holiday season can be a really stressful and chaotic time for lots of us. With tons of new toys and no homes for those new toys, it’s easy for us to get overwhelmed and for our kids to get overwhelmed. Because of this, a lot of parents are focused more on giving experiences (like going to the zoo or to a museum) instead of giving things. 

Because an environment can have such a great affect on us, it makes sense to keep it in check! If you’re looking for more resources on home-life, organization, and decluttering, check out Ashley at homeintentionally.com, in her Home Intentionally Facebook Group, on Instagram, and her Home Intentionally podcast.
