The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 122: But How Do I Discipline My Child?

behavior podcast strategy Jul 27, 2021


So, how do you discipline your child? How do you discipline your toddler? 

Whenever you ask these questions to yourself or to your child’s pediatrician or to an expert I think what you’re really asking is…

How do I get my child to stop doing something that I don’t like? 

and/or 

How do I PUNISH my child to get him to stop doing whatever it is that I don’t like?

A lot of times in our world the word “discipline” is so closely connected to the word “punish,” and a lot of times in our own parenting thoughts we think that the best way to see improvements in behavior is by “disciplining” our children, by “punishing” them. 

But today I’m going to urge you to take a new look at discipline, a more positive look at discipline… a look at discipline that can extend beyond the current moment that you’re facing. A new look at...

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 105: How to Get My Child to Understand Her Behavior Is Not Okay without Using Words

behavior podcast strategy Mar 30, 2021


One of the most common questions and concerns that parents have asked me is whether or not their kiddo will understand that his or her unwanted behavior is not okay when the parent “ignores” the unwanted behavior or does not provide direct attention to that unwanted behavior. 

Do you believe that your child will understand that his or her behavior is not okay when you respond without using words? 

So today I’m diving into this question about whether or not your kiddo understands that his or her behavior is not okay and I’ll share how not providing direct attention to that unwanted behavior is, indeed, still parenting, even if your entire world has told you that it’s not. 

Let’s head to the show!  

IN THIS EPISODE:

  • Laura Lynn shares when you are likely to use the strategy of “ignoring” or not providing direct attention to unwanted behavior to help address that...

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 98: Am I Spoiling My Kid with All of This Praise?

podcast praise strategy Feb 09, 2021


Praise, praise praise. 

You hear it talked about in the positive parenting world, you hear it talked about at your child’s daycare, you hear it talked about from your child’s pediatrician, and you hear it talked about in the online space as a way to prevent unwanted behavior and reduce the likelihood of those unwanted behaviors. 

And you’re probably wondering, “okay, even if praise DOES work, won’t I be spoiling my kid with all of this praise? Won’t they rely on it and not be able to cope if they DON’T have it? Won’t they become prideful and self-righteous as they age and mature? I don’t want my kid to be the kid that always NEEDS to earn a ribbon, a prize, or a reward.” 

These are the thoughts and questions that we think to ourselves as we’re lying in bed at night, but we rarely speak them to another human being.  So today on the show I’m...

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 97: Redirection: What It Is & Why You Should Use It

behavior podcast strategy Feb 02, 2021


You’re a mama of a toddler and you’ve heard it many times before… redirect, redirect, redirect. So, what does redirect really mean and how do you know if you’re using it effectively? 

Because toddlers can be so all-over-the-place with their actions and emotions, the simple positive strategy of redirection is gold in the toddler years. 

So today on the show let’s chip into that gold to better understand this strategy of redirection: what it is, when to use it, how to use it, and why we use it, and, of course, I’ll share some personal examples from my own parenting of toddlers to help make things a bit more clear. 

If you’re unsure about redirection as an effective strategy, this episode is for you. Let’s head to the show. 

IN THIS EPISODE:

  • Laura Lynn explains what redirection is and why we use it with toddlers
  • She illustrates how to use redirection so it is as...

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 82: My Husband’s Perspective on My Potty Training Method


Boy, are you in for a treat today! I’ve had guests on the show before but it’s been quite a while since I’ve had another. Today on the show we are talking about the potty training method I used to potty train my almost two-and-a-half year-old son, but I didn’t potty train alone. My husband, Michael, was a big help and helped out with potty training on the weekends and when he wasn’t at work. So, of course, the guest on the show today is no one other than my husband, Michael. 

For those of you who know me and my husband, you’re probably laughing because you know that with both of us on the show, this is going to be a pretty interesting episode. And for those of you who don’t know Michael, you will very quickly learn that Michael is a jokester, the sarcastic one, and the funny guy, while I lean more on the serious side of things…. Which you have probably already figured out. But the...

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 68: Why Going ALL IN with Your Parenting Will Help You to Live Your BEST Parenting Life

parenting podcast strategy Jul 07, 2020


Hey, hey! I’m so glad that you are back for another episode on The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast! And if this is your very first episode, welcome! I am so happy to have you! If you’ve caught the last two episodes you know that we’ve been talking about setting parenting goals. In today’s episode I’m kind of piggybacking off of the idea of setting those parenting goals by talking about going ALL IN with your parenting. If you know me or you feel like you know me pretty well from the podcast or from social media or from receiving my weekly emails, you know that I don’t do anything half-way. I just don’t. I hate it. And this is in parenthood, in business life, and in my personal life. It’s like I can’t do anything half-way. If I know I can’t give something my full effort, then I just won’t do it. Plain and simple. Why? Because I honestly don’t want to bother wasting my...

The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast Episode 65: The REAL Way to Get Your Kid To Do What You Want

parenting podcast strategy Jun 16, 2020


Hi there and welcome back to The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast. I’m so happy to have you join me! Today’s episode is about the REAL way to get your kid to do what you want. I know, you’re probably screaming right now saying, “Yes, please, give me the real way.” Because ultimately, we do want our kids to do what we want. We want them to follow our instructions. Otherwise, we wouldn’t have delivered the instruction in the first place. We want them to behave appropriately. We prefer no screaming, no running through the house, and no whining. We want our kids to be able to follow a schedule and transition from activity to activity with no problems... instead of throwing a major fit because TV time is over and we’ve got to get ready for dinner. So today I’m going to help you realize what the real way is to get your kid to do what you want, and the answer may just surprise. Oh goody! 

And...

Hi there and welcome to The Parenting Clubhouse Podcast. How to avoid yelling… Maybe you’re thinking that it’s not possible, right?
