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.

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 155: The Potty Dance Dilemma: How to Get Your Child to Request the Potty


Does your toddler do the potty dance? 

Even if your child is wearing underwear and is mostly or completely potty trained, she may still be doing the potty dance. 

When she has to go potty, she may fidget and dance around. Or she may walk around in a funny way because she’s trying to hold it. Or she even could be holding herself because she has to go potty but won’t go to the bathroom, or won’t tell you. 

This is one of the MOST frequent issues that mamas come to me with. Their child is fully potty trained, she doesn’t have accidents, she’s wearing underwear all day, and yet she won’t ever tell you that she needs to go. 

Why is it that your child does this potty dance, is fully potty trained, and won’t tell you that she needs to go? And what can you do about it? That’s what we’ll be talking about today.

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 152: When the Child-Led Potty Training Method Isn’t Working


Parenting should come with a manual, shouldn’t it? 

While that seems like a great idea and an opportunity that someone should have jumped on a long time ago, the reality of it is that every child is an individual. That means they have their individual personalities, their individual preferences, their individual idiosyncrasies, and their individual needs. 

It’s true for potty training as well. You may be holding a so-called potty training “manual” or book, you’ve followed it to a T, and yet your toddler is still not potty trained. What gives? 

If you’re in the boat of using more of a child-led or child-initiated potty training method and it’s just not doing the trick, your toddler is still not getting the hang of it after a good consistent effort, keep listening to this episode. 

Today I will be sharing what to do next if that child-led potty training method isn’t...

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. 

I’ve talked about this strategy before but today on the show I want to show you how you can use this strategy to work for you and with your own preferences in mind. These strategies are like your best friend. They’re on your side and they have your back.

Alright, now onto the power of choice. Let’s head to the show.

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.
