The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 132: Potty Problems at School: When Your Toddler Won’t Go

What happens when your toddler, your preschooler, has potty issues at school? 

This can be a pretty common problem to have but it can be a little tricky to figure out what is going on or how to solve the problem. 

I’ve had to deal with this situation myself with my three-year-old because he just wouldn’t go pee pee at school; he’d hold it until he got home around lunchtime. 

So today on the show I want to share with you specific ways you can support your child if he does have potty problems at school to minimize those accidents or problems and how the school can also support your child through this situation.

 Let’s go to the show. 


  • Laura Lynn shares the potty problem her own preschooler has had at school;
  • She explains how you can support your child if he doesn’t go pee pee at school; and
  • She shares specific ways the school and teacher can help support...

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 45: Why Does My Child Behave Differently at School?

behavior podcast school Jan 21, 2020

Hello there and welcome to The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast! Have you ever wondered why your child behaves differently, and maybe more appropriately, at school or daycare than she does at home? It’s frustrating, isn’t it, to hear that your child is an angel at school - following directions, being a good example to other students, and sharing with peers - but then have your child act like a holy terror at home - not following directions, not getting along with siblings, and being really sassy. Today I want to share one reason for why your child may behave differently at school or daycare. Be sure to check out my Regain Control of Your Child’s Behavior course! Let’s jump in! 

For some of us, our children may behave really appropriately at school or daycare and behave not so appropriately at home. For those of you with preschoolers and young kiddos, at daycare your child may get along with peers, may share and...

 Hi there and welcome to The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast! Today is part 4 of 4 of the Gearing Up for School Series. We’ve talked about morning routines. We’ve talked about bedtime routines. We’ve talked about after school routines. And today we are talking all about homework routines. I know this will be a big episode for many of you as homework time can be a real battle in many households. Let’s jump to it! 

Like we talked about last week, homework is part of the after school routine. Talk about having a routine be a part of a routine. But that’s okay. It’s natural for your child to have a routine within their homework time. 

And, as we also talked about, the after school routine may look differently for each child. Some children like to come home from school, have a snack, and then do their homework. Other children like to jump to their homework first thing. And...

Listen and Subscribe on:

Hi there and welcome to The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast! Today we are continuing with Part 3 of the Gearing Up for School series. We’ve talked about morning routines and we’ve talked about bedtime routines. Today we are going to cover after school routines. Let’s dive in! 

First thing is first. After school routines will look differently depending on your child’s age, your child’s grade, your family routine, and ultimately, what each child needs out of his or her after school routine. 

An after school routine can include a ton of different activities:

  • Snack
  • Chores
  • Homework
  • Extracurricular activities, like sports practice
  • Playtime for the little ones
  • Downtime for the older ones (like watching TV)
  • Prepping for the next day (backpack, lunch, clothes, etc.)

When planning out our child’s after school routine, we need to think about what needs to get done and how long each...

Hi there and welcome! We are continuing with our Gearing Up for School series because I know so many of you are in countdown mode to the new school year. Today I will be talking all about bedtime routines and how to use them to set your child up for success. Let’s do it! 

#1 Set a bedtime

If we want our children to be successful in school and in life, they need to have that adequate sleep, so setting a bedtime is a must. Not only do we need to set a bedtime, but we also need to be consistent with that bedtime. This means that our children should follow the same bedtime on weeknights and on the weekend. If we haven’t started following this schedule yet, now’s the time. 

#2 Have a bedtime routine

A bedtime routine includes all of the activities that your child needs to accomplish at night to prepare for bed. For example, taking a bath, brushing teeth, putting on pajamas, reading a bedtime...
