The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 173: The Power of Creating Trust for Yourself & Your Child

mindset podcast strategies Jul 26, 2022


A concept about parenting that I’ve really been focusing on with the parents that I coach is the idea of you being the expert of your own child. And not only that, but you being the BEST expert of your own child. 

Do you feel like you’re an expert on your child? 

Maybe you’ve never thought about it. Maybe your gut reaction is that no, you don’t feel like the expert of your own child. Maybe you have a lot of questions, a lot of doubt, a lot of uncertainty surrounding how you’re parenting or the decisions you make regarding your child. 

Maybe it’s a little too easy for you to see the areas where you feel that you’re struggling in your parenting, and it’s a little too hard to see the areas where you’re thriving, where you are, indeed, the expert of your child. 

I love developing this thought with moms and specifically to help you to hone in on your own parenting...

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 157: What I Would Change about My Own Potty Training Journey


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.

But today I want to get a little personal and talk about what I would change about my own potty training journey. 

Even if your potty training journey resulted in successfully potty training your toddler, there may still be some things you’d do differently,...

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 151: Are You THRIVING in Your Parenting or Just Getting Through It?

mindset parenting podcast Feb 22, 2022


Do you feel like you’re just “getting through” this season of your motherhood? 

This season of life - dealing with the terrible twos, struggling with the trying 3s, toddlerhood -  can feel so exhausting, so draining, and so frustrating. 

If you feel like you have to hide out in the pantry to make a phone call or sneak away to your bathroom just to catch a break, this episode is for you. 

Today on the show I want to share how you can create a season of motherhood that’s a bit different - and much more positive - than this “just getting through” mentality. 

Let’s head to the show.

IN THIS EPISODE:

  • Laura Lynn shares how easy it is to have this “just getting through” mentality with every stage of your child’s development; 
  • She answers the question, “Are you thriving?” for her own motherhood journey and shares her personal definition for...

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 133: Quit Attaching Personal Meaning to Your Child’s Behavior!

mindset parenting podcast Oct 12, 2021


What makes parenting much more difficult is when we attach personal meaning to our child’s behavior and blame ourselves. 

To be straight with you, it’s not helpful to you and it’s not helpful to your child, but we still do this, we still attach this personal blame to ourselves, and it needs to stop. 

So today, let’s talk about how we should actually view behavior and quit making life harder than it needs to be.  

Now let me share with you how I view behavior. Let’s head to the show. 

IN THIS EPISODE:

  • Laura Lynn shares the ways in which we attach personal meaning to our child’s behavior, like by saying, “I’m the reason he’s acting out.”;
  • She explains how she views behavior objectively so that we don’t make behavior subjective; and
  • She shares her trick for viewing her own children’s behavior for what it is, just behavior.

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 131: What To Do When You’re Suffering in Your Parenting

mindset parenting podcast Sep 28, 2021


No one likes to suffer. We also don’t like to talk about it because we think that we are the only ones who suffer or we think we are the only ones who suffer in THIS specific way… 

Bedtime battles, ditching the paci, getting your kid poop potty trained, whatever it is. 

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.

IN THIS EPISODE:

  • Laura Lynn explains the difference between struggling and suffering in your parenting; 
  • She shares specific ways she has suffered in her own parenting; and 
  • She illustrates what you can do when you are suffering in your own parenting to get out of the suffering state.

Schedule a one-on-one coaching session so you can overcome and move past the suffering in your parenting...

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 104: Handling Your Own Emotions When Your Kid Misbehaves in Front of Your Friends

mindset parenting podcast Mar 23, 2021


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. 

And sure, no mom likes or enjoys when their toddler misbehaves, whether that’s in public or in the privacy of your own home, but when those misbehaviors occur when our friends or any others are present, there’s a greater intensity to the stress that we may feel in response to those misbehaviors. Speaking from experience here. 

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...

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 85: Why I Waited to Potty Train & Why You Should Too


Today we are talking about potty training, but it’s not your typical potty training chat. I’m sharing why I waited to start potty training my toddler… he was over two years old but not quite 2.5…. And I’m sharing what potty training looked like for us day in and day out: how much time we devoted to potty training per day, why on certain days we didn’t potty train very much, why we took an entire day off from potty training, and a bunch of other juicy details. 

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...
