Even when your toddler is whining… Even when your toddler is having a tantrum… Even when you’re trying to do 30 billion things at once AND deal with the kids who aren’t sharing or taking turns…
You can find ease and joy and peace in your parenting… EVEN when you’ve got littles at home… Even if they do behaviors that drive you nuts… Even if you currently feel stretched thin.
But how is that possible, you may ask.
There is a truth to your child’s behavior that you have to keep in mind when you’re in the thick of it, when you’re dealing with the messy house, when you’re again dealing with that typical toddler tantrum.
I’m here to empower you in your own parenting, so let’s do that today. Let’s go to the show.
It’s potty training season and I’m a big, big fan of the potty training schedule method in which your child sits on the potty based off of a schedule, which is signaled by a timer.
One of the reasons why I love this method is because it tells both the child and the parent when it’s time to sit on the potty, and you can easily see where your child is making improvements in their potty training journey.
Alright, let’s get to it. Let’s head to the show.

What do you do when you’re dealing with the same behavior in the same situation day after day after day?
When you’ve got these recurring behavior episodes, even if they seem to be pretty mild situations, it can be so easy for your brain to land in the trap of negativity and feelings of loneliness.
So what do you do? What do you do when you have negative behavior on repeat? This is what we’ll be talking about in today’s episode.
Now it’s time to take back some control. Let’s go to the show.
If you plan to potty train your toddler this summer, this episode is for you.
Let’s talk potty training. Let’s head to the show.

I’m a big fan of rewards, I used rewards to potty train my now 4 year old son, and I will definitely be using rewards when I potty train my 2 year-old daughter. But here’s the thing about rewards… They can work really really well at helping your child learn a new skill - in this case potty training- but we have to use them in the right way.
It’s not rocket science, but you don’t know what you don’t know, right?!
Now onto the two keys when using rewards in potty training. Let’s head to the show.
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.
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,...
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.

Even if your child is wearing underwear and is mostly or completely potty trained, she may still be doing the potty dance.
When she has to go potty, she may fidget and dance around. Or she may walk around in a funny way because she’s trying to hold it. Or she even could be holding herself because she has to go potty but won’t go to the bathroom, or won’t tell you.
This is one of the MOST frequent issues that mamas come to me with. Their child is fully potty trained, she doesn’t have accidents, she’s wearing underwear all day, and yet she won’t ever tell you that she needs to go.
Why is it that your child does this potty dance, is fully potty trained, and won’t tell you that she needs to go? And what can you do about it? That’s what we’ll be talking about today.
