Today on the show I want to share with you one of the main areas where I struggle in my own parenting journey, and I want to share it with you because, if I had to guess, you likely struggle in this area too.
You see, you are likely changing the consistency in those strategies that you’re using and it is likely having an effect on your child’s behavior, but you don’t even realize that it’s happening.
Alright, now let me share with you how I’m a slacker and where my struggle lies within my own parenting. Let’s go to the show.
You’re likely here today because you’re ready to ditch the overwhelm and the frustration that can come with parenting toddlers, dealing with tantrums, hearing the whining, and managing all of the junky behaviors.
So today on the show I want to talk about proactive versus reactive parenting, and why your goal is to aim for that proactive parenting.
Let’s talk about those differences between reactive parenting and proactive parenting. Let’s head to the show.
To be straight with you, it’s not helpful to you and it’s not helpful to your child, but we still do this, we still attach this personal blame to ourselves, and it needs to stop.
So today, let’s talk about how we should actually view behavior and quit making life harder than it needs to be.
Now let me share with you how I view behavior. Let’s head to the show.
Bedtime battles, ditching the paci, getting your kid poop potty trained, whatever it is.
So today on the show I want to talk about the difference between suffering and struggling and what you can do when you are suffering in your own parenting.
Now let’s address this unspoken suffering. Let’s head to the show.

I don’t want potty training to be daunting, scary, or intimidating for you, so today on the show I’m going to break down potty training while co-parenting, shed some light on the different ways it can look - because it will likely look differently for everybody - and help you feel more confident and at ease with potty training your toddler, even if your kiddo jumps from house to house, from one parent to the other.
Let’s dive right in and talk about co-parenting and potty training. Let’s go to the show.
Is it perfection? Is it using the strategy 100% of the time and never missing a beat? Is it the ability to shift strategies depending on the situation, the behavior, your child’s needs at the moment.
Maybe you have no idea. Your mind is blank. You don’t have a clue.
If you find yourself in that boat, mama, don’t blame yourself. Parenting is hard. It’s tiring. It’s taxing. It takes a village. And to be honest, sometimes we make it more difficult than it actually is. Parenting can be easy. Using parenting strategies can be easy.
So of course today I’m going to share with you the secret to parenting strategies. Why? Because when you learn the secret to parenting strategies, suddenly parenting will seem easier. That lightbulb inside of you will go off. It’ll go off now...
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?

You and I both know that how we feel in one area of our life spills over into other areas…. So it’s not so crazy to think that when you create ease in...
Like you, my toddler will be starting 3 year-old preschool come Fall, and if we are being real with ourselves, that’s right around the corner.
Lots of preschools, schools, or daycares require children to be potty trained by a certain age, and that definitely puts some extra pressure and stress on us mamas.
Now let’s get to potty training your toddler in a snap. It’s go-time. Let’s head to the show.
You know that parenting is hard, especially when you are the parent to a strong-willed toddler or a 3-year-old who doesn’t like to listen or to an 18 month old who is constantly whining or to a 2-year-old who is refusing to be potty trained. It can be mentally, physically, and emotionally exhausting. I don’t discount that.
But sometimes in our parenting we may need to try new things: new parenting strategies to help that strong-willed toddler or a different method to potty training that 2-year-old or a specific way to communicate with your child so that he or she will actually listen.
