Today I want to share with you the area where I slack off in my parenting. Where I loosen up. Where I lack consistency.

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.

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.

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.

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....
