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? Or maybe not even to understand, but not to interject into what we try so hard to do?? For this episode, I brought on someone special to me, my mom! She opened up about how parenting evolved for her, and how she feels abou…
 
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…
 
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 …
 
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…
 
We all have an idea of the kind of parent we want to be. Maybe it’s a mom who doesn’t yell or a mom who loves every minute of parenting. In this episode, Alyssa Blask Campbell and I explain why those ideas can be more harmful than good when it comes to helping us be a more positive parent. Both Alyssa and I have seen things like the “no yell challe…
 
What works one day with your kid might not work the next. They tend to do things that seem so unpredictable sometimes. I get it, and it’s very common for sensory kids. In this episode I help take the “random” out of these reactions by helping you see; *Why kids might enjoy a sensory activity one day and the next day refuse it. *Why a child might be…
 
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! While sensory gadgets, tools, toys, and diets have their place and can be so much fun, relying on them to help regulate our kids is a misleading idea for so many reaso…
 
"What do I tell my kid about his sensory preferences and why he has to go to therapy?" This question has come into my DM's in different forms, so many times, so today I wanted to share with you a simple way to explain sensory to the whole family, and help you see why it’s important. In this episode you'll learn: How to get others on board with sens…
 
How do I know if it’s behavior? How do I know if it’s sensory? What do I do when it’s sensory? How can I calm my kid during a meltdown? Those are some of the most common questions parents ask when they have a sensory kid, because, what works for typical kids will NOT work for our sensory kids. But that doesn’t mean we have to give up. There are def…
 
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. Why their kid is so intense, and why it feels so much harder to parent them than other kids. The answers to these questions all make sense when we take a peek through a sensory lens and sh…
 
Author, speaker, and mom, Debbie Reber knows what it’s like to have a kid who has the biggest meltdowns, receive regular calls from the school about her kids “behavior” and all the things most of us know so well, too. In this episode, Debbie shares the shift she created that started decreasing the frustration, the anxiety, and the tears she and her…
 
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…
 
In this episode today you’ll learn all about executive functioning, which sounds like a fancy term, but it if you have a child who struggles with homework, grades, resistance, overwhelm, motivation, procrastination, underachievement, organization, focus, study skills and time management, executive function could be at the core of what they are miss…

Dr. Heather Maguire, a behavior analyst, brings in the science and the reality to help us all know how to handle defiance a little better. To help us all figure out ways to respond without yelling or taking away privileges for a year, Heather shared two super simple ways…
 
The journey of parenting is not easy and looks different for everyone. Knowing how to find joy and courage in the journey is something that Casey O’Roarty, author and podcaster, talks about openly in the most realistic and relatable way I’ve heard. In this episode, you’ll learn tools about navigating motherhood with joyful courage, AND it is absolu…
 
“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. Which is why so many moms reach out and ask “what should I do when my kid says no?” How does that coincide with positive parenting? Should I hold my ground and make sure they learn never to tell us no…
 
We all know it’s important to help kids talk about their feelings and that it’s one way to prevent a lot of behaviors. But, there’s one glaring problem with talking about feelings- kids don’t usually have the words or the emotional intelligence to really express their feelings until they are well into their teens. Of course we still try, and we tea…
 
It’s not uncommon for moms to talk about how to deal with their stress. Too often, the solutions that come up are all centered around things like; Manicures, pedicures, retail therapy, or girls nights. While those can all be great and fun things, we can actually end up MASKING our stress, rather than working through it when we do those things. As m…
 
So many of us start motherhood thinking we will be the perfect parent. We have an unrealistic view of what motherhood is supposed to be, so when we find ourselves getting angry, yelling, or threatening our kids, it feels horrible. We feel like a failure. We feel alone, and we feel like we are the only ones who struggle with those things. Desiree Fo…
 
Recently I heard a friend say that kids just “need tough love” and the thought sparked something inside of me. I would’ve agreed with that statement a few years ago, but today after reading the research and seeing how parenting can be so different, I wanted to show her there was a different way- a better way for kids to learn than by “giving them t…
 
“I was never a yeller until I became a mom.” I’ve said that so many times in my head, and for so long I wondered WHY. If you’ve ever felt that way or wondered why after becoming a mom, emotions are SO different than before, this episode is one you’ll definitely want to dive into. Alice Pickering from momdocpsychology shares both her personal experi…
 
When it comes to kids and screens, everyone has their own opinion. That's why I invited Paige Flamm to come on to talk about her own personal journey going from a mom who used screen time as a way for her to entertain her kids so she could escape and relax, to going completely cold turkey and having no screens, to where she is now which is a very i…
 
Teaching kids to be confident in their own skin and love their bodies is not a passive process. In this episode, Heather from Happier than Skinny helps us see how we can make it a reality. With all the pressure from social media, friends, and even media itself, it can be confusing for kids to develop confidence in who they are, and the bodies they …
 
I was 26 years old and full of textbook information about parenting when I became a mom. Thankfully, my first child was a textbook child in so many ways...but not all. Those other things, I just brushed under the rug and tried to not talk about in front of other moms who I feared would judge me. In this age of self-development, and cliche phrases l…
 
“If you just work hard, everything will turn go great”. That’s what most of us think when we start the journey of parenting, and then reality hits. The things we are working hard at, are making us miserable, and not helping. In this episode, Wendy Snyder gets very real about her darkest moments of parenting and how she used those to move on to a mo…
 
Kids today are different. They are exposed to more social pressure, more media, more messages from outside the home, and more stuff to juggle. Most of that is inevitable, which is why it calls for a shift for us as parents to be more intentional with how we approach parenting. I once heard a friend say “Ill just do the best I can and hope for the b…
 
When it comes to having kids with ADHD or symptoms that look like ADHD. In this episode Dr Valerie Jacobs is talking all about the medical aspect of it all. BUT of course, we aren’t just talking about all the fluffy things, we go deep here, looking at what can cause it, what common triggers are, how to treat it naturally, and when to medicate if ne…
 
It’s one thing to hear parenting experts talk about parenting and how different it can be, but today I’m bringing a parent who isn’t a parenting coach to you to talk about her journey of being the yelling, impatient mom who was desperate for answers, to being the one who feels like she understands, is more confident, and more patient than ever. My …
 
“Be patient, don’t yell, and be positive and everything will be ok” The messages around about parenting are there, but after TRYING to be patient, to NOT yell, and to be positive, I know I felt like a failure more often than not. Looking back I see I was approaching it all wrong. I was trying to ACT patient, rather than feel patient, and the differ…

Getting kids to chores can be such a pain. First we ask nicely, then we get a little more firm, soon we find ourselves threatening things we could never follow through on, just to get a little help around the house. After years of repeating this same pattern, I decided to make some changes. In this episode you'll learn the exact process I used to t…
 
Its no secret we parent differently than most people. Inevitably, when that happens, we set ourselves up to be seen and to be judged. Ugh, the thought of being judged still gets me, but it’s real. Also, on the same side of that coin is those who don’t necessarily judge but who aren’t supportive. When it comes to teachers, caregivers, or others who …
 
As moms, we want to give our kids the world on a silver platter. We often have hopes, dreams, and wishes for them, even if we don’t realize they are there. In this episode, Wendi Mckenna opens up about a side of parenting that’s rarely talked about. She talks about how those hopes, dreams, and expectations are coming from our own selfish desires, a…
 
After seeing the same behaviors over and over again, it’s hard to know what to do about them. We know timeouts don’t work, punishments don’t work, and even lecturing (er talking) to them about it doesn’t really make the behavior change. Today on the podcast Lauren Pace is showing us how to teach our kids the skills they are lacking that causes thes…

In this episode, John Lanza from www.themoneymammals.com/ talks about how to create money habits in your family that will help kids learn to sav…
 
In the middle of a meltdown, when your ears are about to burst, and your patience is worn thin, it’s hard to know what to do. Sure, people can tell you to “be firm” but that just ends in a massive power struggle. Others can tell you to “validate their feelings” but that doesn’t even get heard sometimes. So what can be done in those crazy, exhaustin…
 
I never learned how to cultivate creativity in my own kids, and most parents find themselves in the same boat as me. But, it’s something I feel is so important to my kids’ development and future success, so this episode is one I’ve found to be super helpful. In this episode, Jean Van’t Hul talks about how to foster creativity in kids...not only thr…
 
“How do I get my partner on board if he says I’m just being a pushover?” “How can I get my partner to see that yelling or spanking isn’t helping?” Changing the ways we parent is a process and can be hard when we feel like we are doing it alone, or if we are being judged for it. In this candid episode, I’m opening up about the differences between my…

Here in this episode Ty Aller, a licensed Marriage and family therapist explains the best practices for supporting healthy social-emotional growth by…
 
Knowing how to react when our kids act out and wondering if it’s even possible to go a day without losing our patience is HARD! There are so many different ideas about what moms should do in those situations, but Lisa Andersen from thriving motherhood takes a countercultural approach that involves letting go. In this episode you’ll learn; How to re…
 
Cleaning my son's room I noticed a whiteboard we had bought him for car trips. I picked it up to put it away and saw written on it something that stopped me in my tracks. The words there brought back memories of my older sister who, after battling an unseen mental illness of depression or bipolar or something that went undiagnosed, ended her suffer…
 
Raising kids who listen, respect others, and don't talk back isn't an easy job. Especially for anyone who grew up in an authoritarian home where it was expected that kids "do what they are told" without question "or else..." So how does a mom integrate positive parenting strategies with the rules and expectations for helping out around the house wi…

There are likely millions of different parenting practices out there. Different authors, coaches, mentors, and experts all laying out strategies, and tactics for “getting kids to behave” Some of the more popular strategies include “ignoring junk behavior” and “praising positive behavior.” Coaches are calling these positive parenting practices, stat…
 
Mindfulness is somewhat of a buzz word in mom communities right now. I usually see it associated with regular yoga practices, meditations, or calming routines. . BUT for moms who don’t see themselves meditating, taking and hour break for a yoga flow, what can mindfulness look like? In this episode Cameron Kleimo from http://www.sensorymom.com/ shar…
 
On instagram I spent the first part of April debunking parenting myths. (find me at imperfect_mom_) The one that had the most feedback by far was that timeouts are not a form of positive parenting. If you would have told me this 5 years ago I would have questioned it, I would have denied it, and told you that it was better than freaking out, yellin…
 
I imagine most every parent wants to teach their kid how to be a responsible, respectful human. HOW that happens is the magic question. Often we are told we need to “teach our kids a lesson” when they talk back, misbehave, or don’t do what we ask. But do kids actually LEARN when we go through all the hassle of using timeouts, threats, or punishment…
