Does your toddler grunt or make some other similar noise when she’s upset or frustrated about something that’s going on around her?

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 147: The How-To for Establishing Effective Rules for Toddlers

behavior podcast strategies Jan 25, 2022


What I know from studying the research (and personally living it out) is that kids - and all people - love and thrive on routine and structure and consistency.

But how can we create that structure, provide that consistency, and also tackle some of these typical unwanted toddler behaviors in our own homes in a practical way?

Rules, my friends. 

Contrary to what many people believe, rules actually provide freedom. That structure and that consistent expectation provides freedom, not the opposite. 

So today on the show I want to give you the how-to for creating effective rules for your toddlers that you can use at home, and I’ll walk you through two different rules I’ve successfully incorporated in my own home with my toddlers. 

Yep, these rules actually got rid of some unwanted behaviors that were driving me nuts.

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 146: Is It Normal for My Child to Refuse Help?

behavior parenting podcast Jan 18, 2022


Have you ever been in a situation in which your toddler asks for or requests your help in some way, you begin to offer that help, and then they freak out, whine, and get upset because you are helping them… and you’re doing the exact thing they wanted help with. 

You’re left feeling, “uh, what the heck just happened?!” 

These types of moments are not too surprising with our still-developing toddlers, and if we can understand this toddler behavior with a developmental lens, parenting becomes a heck of a lot easier, so much less irritating, and much more enjoyable for us. 

But maybe you’re still left questioning yourself: what on earth do I do in this situation? How should I handle the “I want help but I actually don’t want help” scenario? 

My main advice here: direct and clear communication is key. 

Let’s talk about that now. Let’s head to the...

Do you ever feel like your kids are acting like total nutcases, especially when you’re out in public? 

Maybe you’re feeling that your kids are the only kids.
