The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 180: Getting Your Toddler to Transition to Something They Don’t Like

podcast strategies tantrums Sep 13, 2022


No one likes to do something that they don’t want to do, and that goes for our toddlers as well. 

You don’t like to pay bills, schedule another doctor’s appointment, run to the grocery store, or prep dinner, but you do it anyway, without a fuss, without a tantrum…. Well, at least sometimes. 

Our toddlers, they’re a different story. 

There are a lot of things that they don’t like but they need to do it anyway: going potty, getting dressed, cleaning up toys, heading inside for the night. 

And when they don’t like something but need to do it anyway, this is when you’ll likely see that full-blown tantrum. They’re not as good as you at controlling their emotions. 

So how can we make this easier on them - and us - when they need to transition to something that they don’t like to do. That’s what we’ll be talking about today, and I’ll be...

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 179: What To Do When Your Toddler Doesn’t Fully Eliminate Her Bladder


Picture this… 

You’re done with daytime potty training, your child is fully pee and poop potty trained for daytime and nap, and now all of a sudden your child isn’t doing a good pee when she sits on the toilet. She sits, goes some, and then runs off. 

Maybe she’s rushing to the bathroom a little while later because she has to go. Maybe she suddenly has some pee pee dribbles in her underwear. 

And you're thinking, what gives? You had this whole potty training thing down months ago. 

If you ask me, “What gives?” is a great question. 

Why is your child suddenly doing this, and what can you do about it? That’s what I’ll be answering today. 

Let’s head to the show.

IN THIS EPISODE:

  • Laura Lynn reviews the potential reasons your child is not fully eliminating when she sits on the potty to go pee;

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 178: “NO!” Responding to the Common Toddler Back-Talk

no podcast strategies Aug 30, 2022


If you have a two-year-old, three-year-old, or four-year-old, you may have noticed the nasty “no” word coming out of your sweet toddler's mouth maybe a little too often. 

It’s not super surprising. Your toddler is growing in independence, being in control is something she’s aiming for, and she’s learning that her behavior - her response - can be used for her good. 

So today on the show I want to talk about how we should respond to the ever common “no” that our toddlers throw at us. 

Your child saying this may absolutely drive you mad, but it doesn’t have to. 

Let’s go to the show.

IN THIS EPISODE:

  • Laura Lynn shares the two common reasons for why a child may say “no” to you;
  • She explains why it’s important to understand the reason for why your toddler may be telling you “no”; and 
  • She shares how you should respond when your child says “no” to your instruction, your transition, or your positive comment.

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 177: What Being Brave Looks Like in My Parenting


Are you into the whole idea of picking a word for the year? 

If you are, at the beginning of January you probably chose a word to help you align yourself to who you want to be - or at least working towards being - for the new year. 

I’m not super into this trend or idea like other people are but for the past two years I did choose a word to focus on at least temporarily. 

The word that I chose for 2022 is BRAVE because, at the time when I chose the word, I needed to be grounded in the concept of bravery, and I felt the nudge to be brave in all areas of life, in my marriage, in my personal life, in my business, and in parenting. 

So today I want to share with you what being brave looks like for me in my parenting, and I’m sharing this with you in the hopes of inspiring you to be brave in your own life, and to remind you that you’re definitely not alone. 

You’re not the only parent who...

Summer is coming to an end and it’s about time to send your toddler back to preschool - or maybe to preschool for the first time.

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...
