Since Spring and Summer are key times for potty training for most parents, for the next foreseeable future I’ll be adding in extra potty training episodes on the podcast to give you some additional support. I’ll be talking about the how-to of potty training, using rewards, outlining when potty training is over, and describing what life really looks like when potty training is over, which will be very helpful if your child is the first one you’re potty training. Don’t forget that I do have a lot of previous episodes on potty training, so search my episodes to see if any of those episodes can give you some guidance when it comes to potty training.
Even if your potty training journey resulted in successfully potty training your toddler, there may still be some things you’d do differently,...

So today on the show I want to talk about the difference between suffering and struggling and what you can do when you are suffering in your own parenting.
Now let’s address this unspoken suffering. Let’s head to the show.
Schedule a one-on-one coaching session so you can overcome and move past the suffering in your parenting...
Whether we like to admit it or not and whether we talk with others about our own emotions or not, we DO experience some type of emotion when our child acts out in front of our friends… or strangers… or family members… or anyone really.
So today I want to talk about how we can better handle our emotions and our thoughts when our children misbehave because it will happen.
Your children will misbehave in front of your friends. They may misbehave in front of their teacher or daycare staff. They may misbehave in front of your pastor. They may misbehave in front of...
And I’m sharing all of these details with you because 1) I want to show you that not everyone’s potty training journey is spotless (even mine) and 2) I want to show you how I’m a real human being, how I allowed myself to be a real human being who has needs to be met, and how you can allow yourself to be human and give yourself some slack.
So enough of all of this potty training pressure. Yes, I’m giving you...
