The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 138: Is It Normal for My Child to Have Meltdowns Around the Holidays?

behavior holidays podcast Nov 16, 2021


Most of us love a good holiday celebration, and before we know it we are going to be thrown into over a month of celebrating. 

From Thanksgiving to Christmas to New Years, from party after party after party, and from one activity to another, your schedule is going to be booked. The same goes for your kids as well. Maybe you love it or maybe you hate it. 

But the reality of this holiday craziness is that there are bound to be a few extra meltdowns or tantrums here or there - from your toddler of course, but maybe also from you - and it really shouldn’t come as a surprise, should it? 

Today on the show we’re going to be talking about these meltdowns that happen around the holidays: why they are more likely to occur at this time and what you can do to help your kid - and yourself - through this holiday season. 

Let’s go to the show.

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 137: When It’s A GOOD Idea to Yell at Your Kid

behavior podcast strategies Nov 09, 2021


Do you ever yell at your kids? 

I know you’re thinking, “well, of course, Laura Lynn. Yes, I yell at my kids, but I don’t want to admit that to you.” 

You probably don’t want to admit that to me or to anybody else because the best rule of thumb, those best practice strategies that all of the experts teach us is to not yell at our kids, to avoid yelling at our kids. 

While I 100% agree with this, that it’s not going to be best for you or for your kiddo if your go-to strategy is yelling, I do want to take it a step further and talk about when yelling is okay, even when yelling is a GOOD idea. 

Yep, today I’m going to give you permission to yell at your kid, but my thoughts may be a bit different than you think.

Let me tell you when you CAN yell. Let’s head to the show.

Our kids see and hear everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, that we do and say.

Let’s go to the show.

behavior podcast strategies Sep 21, 2021


There may be lots of little situations that your toddler or preschooler struggles in the day-to-day ongoings of life. 

Getting dressed. Stepping away from the TV. Eating dinner. Coming inside from outside playtime. Not splashing in the bathtub.

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 126: How To Turn Things Around When You Only See “BAD” Behavior?

behavior podcast strategies Aug 24, 2021


Maybe when you look at your toddler or preschooler all you see is the “BAD” behavior: fighting with siblings, not sharing toys, NEVER listening to you or following your directions (especially the first time), terrible mealtime behaviors, a mean or a bad attitude, being strong-willed when it comes to bedtime and the bedtime routine,  tantrums, tantrums, and more tantrums, and oh, we can’t forget the annoying whining. 

You see the “BAD”.... it’s easy to spot, you can’t miss it. And sure, “BAD” or unwanted behavior doesn’t mean your child is a bad kid and it doesn’t mean you’re a bad parent, but that doesn’t change much of your feelings. 

You’re sick and tired of being, well, sick and tired. 

You’re sick and tired of feeling how parenting a toddler, your own child, seems and feels so dang difficult… maybe impossible....

If you’re a mama with long hair like me, you also dread when your toddler pulls your hair. 

Maybe it was by accident or maybe it was intentional. Regardless of the intent, I have thought many times about cutting my hair because it has become a pet peeve of mine when my hair gets pulled. It drives me nuts. 

But what we want to know is whether it’s normal. And more importantly, how can we make it stop? 

So, how do we get our toddlers to stop pulling our hair? Let’s find out. Let’s head to the show.

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 122: But How Do I Discipline My Child?

behavior podcast strategy Jul 27, 2021


So, how do you discipline your child? How do you discipline your toddler? 

Whenever you ask these questions to yourself or to your child’s pediatrician or to an expert I think what you’re really asking is…

How do I get my child to stop doing something that I don’t like? 

and/or 

How do I PUNISH my child to get him to stop doing whatever it is that I don’t like?

A lot of times in our world the word “discipline” is so closely connected to the word “punish,” and a lot of times in our own parenting thoughts we think that the best way to see improvements in behavior is by “disciplining” our children, by “punishing” them. 

But today I’m going to urge you to take a new look at discipline, a more positive look at discipline… a look at discipline that can extend beyond the current moment that you’re facing. A new look at...
