In my own parenting I am ALL about using strategies that are easy to use, that work at improving behavior in the moment I'm with my toddler, and that help my child with skill development and improve behavior long-term.
Who wouldn’t want less whining and more appropriate communication?!
Let’s go to the show.
If your child’s behavior isn’t the problem, then what do you think IS the problem?
Today I’m putting on my sassy pants for a little bit - which I rarely do - but I do it for a good reason.
Alright, the sassy pants are coming on. I hope you enjoy. Let’s go to the show.
Parenting can be easy! Schedule a call with me to learn about my 90 Day...
Maybe her brother took away the toy that she was playing with. Maybe you told her that she can’t have a snack right now. Maybe you’re making her go inside from outside playtime.
What’s really going on is that your child is responding to some irritating thing with sounds instead of words.
Is this normal? And what can you do about it? That’s what I’ll be talking about in today’s episode.
Let’s go to the show.
He wants to play with you. He wants your interaction. He wants you near him during his playtime. He wants you to do most of the playing.
If this sounds like playtime at your house, keep listening to this episode.
Today I’ll be sharing what you can do when your child relies on you for his playtime and specific tools you can use to begin teaching your child how to play without you. And, of course, I’ll be reviewing that ever-important development piece that we must never forget when it comes to understanding our child’s behavior.
Let’s head to the show.
If you have two or more toddlers running around your house, you already know what a battle it can be for your kids to share toys.
And you are well aware of increased noise, the stress, and the pressure that this not wanting to share behavior can bring up. So is it a big deal?
We’ll talk about it in today’s episode. Let’s go to the show.
What I know from studying the research (and personally living it out) is that kids - and all people - love and thrive on routine and structure and consistency.
Rules, my friends.
Contrary to what many people believe, rules actually provide freedom. That structure and that consistent expectation provides freedom, not the opposite.
So today on the show I want to give you the how-to for creating effective rules for your toddlers that you can use at home, and I’ll walk you through two different rules I’ve successfully incorporated in my own home with my toddlers.
Yep, these rules actually got rid of some unwanted behaviors that were driving me nuts.
Let’s create some effective rules. Let’s head to the show.
You’re left feeling, “uh, what the heck just happened?!”
These types of moments are not too surprising with our still-developing toddlers, and if we can understand this toddler behavior with a developmental lens, parenting becomes a heck of a lot easier, so much less irritating, and much more enjoyable for us.
But maybe you’re still left questioning yourself: what on earth do I do in this situation? How should I handle the “I want help but I actually don’t want help” scenario?
My main advice here: direct and clear communication is key.
Let’s talk about that now. Let’s head to the...
I’ll tell you everything you need to know, and don’t worry, it’s not rocket science. It’s pretty straight forward and makes sense.

Maybe you’re feeling that your kids are the only kids.
Your kids are the only kids who are loud and noisy. Your kids are the only kids who are touching everything in sight. Your kids are the only kids who are running all over the place.
It feels embarrassing and can be mentally exhausting.
Today on the show I want to talk about those kids of ours who are acting like nutcases while out in public and what we, as parents, can think about the whole situation.
Perspective is everything and today I’m here to give you some perspective.
Now onto the show.
Most of us love a good holiday celebration, and before we know it we are going to be thrown into over a month of celebrating.
From Thanksgiving to Christmas to New Years, from party after party after party, and from one activity to another, your schedule is going to be booked. The same goes for your kids as well. Maybe you love it or maybe you hate it.
Today on the show we’re going to be talking about these meltdowns that happen around the holidays: why they are more likely to occur at this time and what you can do to help your kid - and yourself - through this holiday season.
Let’s go to the show.
