behavior parenting podcast Dec 21, 2021


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. 

Your kids are the only kids who are loud and noisy. Your kids are the only kids who are touching everything in sight. Your kids are the only kids who are running all over the place. 

It feels embarrassing and can be mentally exhausting. 

Today on the show I want to talk about those kids of ours who are acting like nutcases while out in public and what we, as parents, can think about the whole situation.

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 142: Providing Choices: What To Do When It All Goes Wrong


What to do when you deliver a choice to your child, you’re banking that it’ll take care of all of that whining and toddler tantrum in that moment, and then flop: it all goes wrong. Or at least it seems that it all goes wrong. 

As I always say, we can use all of the best parenting strategies out there but our kids are still kids, they’re human, we’re human, and the strategies aren’t going to work 100% of the time. 

Don’t get me wrong, I firmly believe that strategies like providing choices are incredible and powerful and can have such a positive effect within your parenting, but the strategy may not work each and every time. This is normal and this is to be expected. That’s why it’s important to have an arsenal of good parenting strategies.

So today on the show I want to walk you through how to handle a situation that seems to go completely wrong when using the strategy of...

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 141: What To Do When You’ve Dabbled with Potty Training & You’re Ready To Get It Done


Have you dabbled with potty training but you’re ready to put the pedal to the metal, go all in, and ditch those diapers for good? 

Maybe you’ve given your toddler the time and the space to get comfortable with the potty, to give it a try on their own, and to let them do it on their terms. But maybe, just maybe, your toddler isn’t daytime potty trained. 

Don’t worry. It’s not just your toddler and you’re not the only one in this boat. Many, many parents have gone this route of being lax about potty training but soon finding that they need to ramp up the strategies a little bit to actually get their kiddo potty trained. 

And guess what, some kids actually do need to be “trained.” They need to go through the potty training process. They may not be potty trained on their own or in their own timing, and that’s okay. 

So today on the show I’m going to answer the...

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 133: Quit Attaching Personal Meaning to Your Child’s Behavior!

mindset parenting podcast Oct 12, 2021


What makes parenting much more difficult is when we attach personal meaning to our child’s behavior and blame ourselves.

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 127: The SECRET to Parenting Strategies


Today I want you to stop and ask yourself what do YOU think the secret to using parenting strategies is? 

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...
