Up to this point in history, children have been seen as less than and parented in a way that uses power over a child. Most of us were parented in this way but there is a shift in thinking about the way we raise our kids. Parents don’t feel good about using shame, blame, criticism, punishments, and even rewards, to get their kids to listen. Parents are wanting a different way because they know from their own childhoods this type of parenting hurts and leaves us with scars we take with us thro ...

Most of us, whether we admit it or not, would love it if our kids came out as a “mini me.” Wouldn’t it be so much easier if they did? Do you have a child that is the EXACT OPPOSITE of you and it drives you crazy? Does it make it hard for you to connect with them? Is it hard for you to like them? What words do you use to describe your child? When we…
 
I have changed a lot as a person, and as a parent, in the 15 years, I’ve been married. While I’d absolutely say the change has been for the best, it hasn’t always been easy, especially when it came to explaining things to my husband. Having been raised in an authoritarian household, he had ideas about discipline, obedience, and his role as a dad. I…

As parents, it’s one thing to work to change our parenting style, but what about our parents? How do we get them to understand?

She opened up about how parenting evolved for her, and how she feels abou…
 
Guess what? You don’t have to complete your to-do list! YUP!! Just because there is a long list, doesn’t mean you have to spread yourself so thin and feel like you have to get them done in the same timeframe. This causes stress and overwhelm. Instead, use my guest Ann Gomez’s 3 simple strategies: Scale back, Streamline, and Seek help. These are gam…
 
Little kids with big emotions usually just feels like having kids who have MASSIVE tantrums, lots of tears, and probably a lot of resistance too. In the heat of the moment, it’s hard to remember that their actions are a result of their emotions. And, let’s face it, when the tantrums are lasting longer more often than most, it’s just draining to eve…
 
You can be a peaceful parent and still be in charge. In fact, our kids NEED us to be IN CHARGE. They are always looking to us to show them the way and if we are unsure and inconsistent it causes stress and anxiety in our kids which leads to behavior we don’t like. Dr. Vanessa and I talk about how important it is to show up with swagger so our kids …
 
Want to yell less at kids? Consider these two things first The other day I pulled up Pinterest to see what would appear when I searched “how to yell less at kids.” I wasn’t surprised that over 1,000 articles came up, all with catchy titles promising to end the yelling spell once and for all. Each article had something different to try. Some were a …

There’s more than enough parenting advice out there for; how to be more patient, yell less at kids, and transform into the mom who actually loves motherhood. While some of those tips might work for a while, most likely, all that parenting advice won’t last long term because it’s missing one important piece. That piece is exactly what Nancy DeMaria …
 
Are you silly? How comfortable are you acting goofy? Sadly, we don’t have much room in our lives for fun and games. We are tired, stressed, rushed and exhausted. We may be stiff and tired and easily bored when we try to get on the floor and play – especially when it means we have to switch gears from our stressful days or when you know there are a …
 
This episode is close to my heart as I interview a friend and former student Shira Parnes. She isn’t a parenting expert, behavior expert, or anything of the likes. She’s a mom who works a full-time job, has young kids, and just like most of you- at one point felt like she wasn’t cut out to be the mom her kids needed. In this interview she shares ho…

That’s where Illana Raia’s book, website, and mentorship program called Être Girls…

Both Alyssa and I have seen things like the “no yell challe…
 
Are you holding on to anger for your child? Your children? Are you angry at yourself? In this episode, I’m talking about forgiveness.

Then we beat ourselves …

After watching a Facebook ad claiming there’s “one thing all sensory parents should have.” The ad stated that it could help avoid and minimize meltdowns. I honestly wanted to scream!

Recently I’ve been getting a lot of questions in my DM’s about sensory kids. Parents want to know why their kid seems to do things they “know” they shouldn’t do.

If there’s one question I get asked over and over again, it’s this “how do I know if my kid is just being bad or if it’s sensory?” There are hundreds of articles on the internet about the difference between a meltdown and a tantrum, the difference between sensory and behavior, and quite frankly, I think all of those articles miss an important point…

“No” It’s such a short word but when it comes flying out of our kid’s mouth, it can trigger a surge of rage, frustration, and so many other feelings.
