The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 164: Remember THIS about Toddler Behavior to Parent in Ease


What can you do to parent in ease? 

Even when your toddler is whining… Even when your toddler is having a tantrum… Even when you’re trying to do 30 billion things at once AND deal with the kids who aren’t sharing or taking turns…

You can find ease and joy and peace in your parenting… EVEN when you’ve got littles at home… Even if they do behaviors that drive you nuts… Even if you currently feel stretched thin. 

But how is that possible, you may ask.

behavior parenting podcast Mar 15, 2022


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

Maybe her brother took away the toy that she was playing with. Maybe you told her that she can’t have a snack right now. Maybe you’re making her go inside from outside playtime. 

What’s really going on is that your child is responding to some irritating thing with sounds instead of words.

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 149: The Power of CHOICE: Making It Work for You


You CAN have control in your parenting. You CAN feel confident in your parenting. And you CAN experience stability in your parenting. 

How? 

By using strategies that work. By parenting smarter and not harder. 

One of the practical ways that you can do this and achieve that success in your parenting and with your toddler’s behavior is through the strategy of choice. Simply providing choices to your toddler.

These strategies are like your best friend. They’re on your side and they have your back. If you feel like these parenting strategies are out to get you or make your life worse, keep listening to the episode.

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...
