Lauren Rodych-Eberle is one of the hosts of the Kids Who Explore podcast, which encourages families to connect with nature and explore the outdoors together. She is the owner of Miss Lauren's Music Studio, where she teaches voice, piano, ukulele, and preschool music classes, and she is the author of several cookbooks. Lauren has a deep passion for food, hiking, adventure, and travel, and she is just an all-around cool person. We connected on Instagram over tips to handle ticks, and I am so excited to talk to her on the podcast today. We begin with Lauren's hiking essentials, including a lint roller, TickWise organic tick spray, and a First Aid Kit. We address the pressure parents put on themselves to tackle huge summits, stay on track, and not let their kids stop and explore trails. Lauren offers her advice to keep hikes short, sweet, and fun so that your kids will want to go again, and we look at how hiking builds grit from a young age. Lauren shares her idea to make summer and winter bucket lists, and we trade hilarious parenting stories about dealing with teenagers versus toddlers. We chat about how the most relaxed days with our kids are often the most memorable, why little ones should skip sippy cups altogether, and the inspiration behind Kids Who Explore with founder Adrianna Skori. Lauren's fascinating insights remind us that getting outside doesn't have to be an extravagant undertaking - just getting out the door or putting your feet in the grass will have a tremendous impact on your life, and open up a world of adventure that you can enjoy safely with your kids. Thank you for your listening, and I appreciate your patronage more than I can say. For more information on my potty training and parenting resources, please visit the links below. The Finer Details of This Episode: Lauren is one of the hosts of the Kids Who Explore podcast They want to help kids get outdoors She also owns a music studio, teaches music, writes cookbooks, and has a passion for adventure Lauren and I connected on Instagram over a post on ticks Tips to use a lint roller after being outdoors, wear white Her backpack essentials for hiking trips include all-natural TickWise organic spray, lint roller, First Aid Kit, water, snacks, bear spray, clothing layers, blanket, hat, and sunscreen Goal of Kids To Explore is just to get people out the front door, into nature, and not feel like they have to conquer a huge summit to go hiking Nature walks still qualify as hikes - whatever it takes to get your family outside A lot of parents feel they need to stay on track and do not want to stop and let their kids explore while hiking Keep the pace short, sweet, and fun so that your kids will want to go hiking again Exploring outdoors helps build grit Make time in nature a priority by investing in gear and including time for it in your schedule Lauren's summer and winter bucket lists, and encouraging your kids to help you come up with ideas The importance of getting outside in the winter to help stave off depression and Cabin Fever Start looking for winter gear in the off-season to help mitigate the cost Most relaxed days with our kids are often the most memorable, like my days eating ice cream with Pascal for breakfast, lunch, and dinner Infantilizing problem with young kids, and instead encouraging them to skip over sippy cups altogether They can start using open cups, like the Mini Cup, at 6 months Parents can get obsessed with overhydrating their kids, which can complicate potty training and hinder building patience as a skill The inspiration behind Kids Who Explore with founder Adrianna Skori, and growing to 45,000 followers since launching in January 2021 Quotes “We want nature to help raise our kids.” “The big thing is that we don't want people to feel like it has to be this huge mountain, this huge summit, in order for people to feel like they've accomplished something. We just want people to literally get outside the front door.” “As long as it's not a paved, flat ground, I'm going to call it a hike.” “We have to keep this short and sweet. Because my goal is that the kids have fun. And by the end, they want to do it again. But if it's like you're pushing them along and rushing them, then they're not going to say they want to do that again.” “I make [a bucket list] every summer and every winter just to kind of give us ideas of fun things to go through. And so like this summer I'm making one that is super toddler-friendly for my daughter to do with me. And also very COVID-friendly, I guess, too, because not as many things are open.” “I think getting outside is super vital in the winter.” “Ideally, you're looking at secondhand winter gear when spring hits. Because it's going to be at its lowest price.” “So the sippy cup, I say get rid of it, especially with night training, because the kid is often sucking for comfort. So they're not thirsty. They're just taking it in.” “Even like you were saying with hiking, it's good to teach them right a little bit at a time.” “We were hiking together. And we started to be like, we need something - like we want our kids to be on all these adventures with us. We need something that makes sure that safety is at the forefront, and we can still do all these things and involve them.” “It's been such an amazing community that [friend and founder Adrianna Skori] has built up. And we've seen the impact, even just you sharing the tips and tricks, and people realizing it's easier than it looks just to get outside. It doesn't have to be this huge extravagant thing.” Links: Jamie's Homepage - www.jamieglowacki.com Oh Crap!

What happens when your toddler, your preschooler, has potty issues at school? This can be a pretty common problem to have but it can be a little tricky to figure out what is going on or how to solve the problem. I've had to deal with this situation myself with my three-year-old because he just wouldn't go pee pee at school; he'd hold it until he got home around lunchtime. So today on the show I want to share with you specific ways you can support your child if he does have potty problems at school to minimize those accidents or problems and how the school can also support your child through this situation. Let's go to the show. IN THIS EPISODE: Laura Lynn shares the potty problem her own preschooler has had at school; She explains how you can support your child if he doesn't go pee pee at school; and She shares specific ways the school and teacher can help support preschoolers so they are less likely to encounter potty training issues.

After my recent Instagram post on the arc of a tantrum received such an overwhelming response, I decided to devote an entire podcast to dissecting all things tantrums, meltdowns, and big feelings. Tantrums are the most intense and send your child into an altered state where you'll actually wonder if you've encountered the devil, whereas meltdowns will make you feel more sad for your poor little one who's just tired and overwhelmed. Big feelings are a momentary freakout that end just as quickly as they came on. All three can meld and morph into each other, and today I'll look at what's normal, what's not, why tantrums happen, and what we can do about them. Tantrums typically begin developmentally around the 16-month to 3-year mark, and coincide with explosive brain growth that happens during that time. At this age, kids do not yet have the language skills needed to express their thoughts, and tantrums could be caused by something as simple as needing to poop. In today's episode, I clarify that a few tantrums a week is developmentally appropriate, and explain what to watch out for to determine whether your child's tantrums are cause for concern (whether they act aggressively, where they are tantruming and with whom, how long they last). I discuss my Go To Your Room strategy to help your child self-regulate while having big feelings, how to fix meltdowns by addressing the root of the problem, and the window of opportunity to distract your child at the beginning of a tantrum. I review the entire arc of a tantrum, what you can do to handle them at each stage, and the importance of letting a tantrum cycle run its course. Thank you for your patronage, and please visit the links below for more information on my potty training and parenting resources! The Finer Details of This Episode: The difference between tantrums, meltdowns, and big feelings Tantrums have to do with intensity and presence - tantrums are usually longer than big feelings or meltdowns, and it will seem like your child is in an altered state Meltdowns have to do more with something out of your child's control that's affecting them (hungry, tired, sick, overstimulated) With a meltdown, you'll feel more sad for how overwhelmed your child feels, whereas with a tantrum, you'll wonder if you've encountered the devil Big feelings are different from big reactions - it's a knee jerk reaction where your kid's wires got crossed and they had a momentary freakout Big feelings tend to happen fast and end just as quickly Tantrums, meltdowns, and big feelings can meld and morph into each other What's normal and what can we do about tantrums? Oftentimes, tantrums can be caused because of digestive issues or allergies, so please do not jump to conclusions that it is a behavioral issue Most behavioral therapists agree that tantrums are a demand for attention, a demand for something tangible, or an escape from a demand (putting on shoes, leaving the house) If the tantrum is not explainable, that could be edging into problem behavior Tantrums start developmentally around the 16-month to 3-year mark and it coincides with explosive brain development MRIs from newborn to five years old confirm the rapid brain development during this period A lot of times tantrums come on simply because the child's brain circuitry gets jammed Language skills are also underdeveloped at that time and they do not have the words to express their thoughts or needs Tantrums after 3.5 years are concerning - they should not be happening regularly beyond ages 4 or 5 Frequency of tantrums will help you determine whether it's normal behavior, as a few per week are developmentally appropriate Be cautious of brushing off behavior that's out of the norm, as you child could really be suffering Keeping you and your child safe during a tantrum, and the difference between flailing and being purposefully aggressive Another marker to look for is whether your child is only tantruming with you versus at daycare, in public, at the playground - across the board If they're having tantrums only with you, that means they feel safe with you and you're actually a very good parent Average tantrum should only last between 6 to 12 minutes Role of food allergies and tracking whether certain foods trigger problem behaviors Huffington Post article How To Measure Whether Your Child's Tantrums Are Normal Using the Go To Your Room strategy for big feelings and reactions so child can self-regulate on their own If your child is having a meltdown, you fix it - if they're hungry, feed them; if they're tired, adjust their sleep schedule Be cautious of overstimulation and plan your outings accordingly Keep in mind that everyone is allowed to have a shitty day, even kids In the arc of a tantrum, about a quarter of the way through, there is a window of opportunity where you can distract the child At the peak of tantrum is an opportunity to hold space - hear them, be present with inaction A big mistake parents make is trying to end the tantrum too early or interrupt it Think of a tantrum as a cycle that needs to complete itself At the end, you want to hold your child tight and restore connection - do not process the tantrum If you are concerned about your kid's tantrum behavior, consult a parenting expert like myself or your pediatrician Quotes “Tantrums have to do with intensity and presence. So a tantrum, once it gets going, your child is gone. They've left the planet. They're no longer in the room with you… They're in an altered state. The intensity is going to be really strong. There's nothing you can do to stop it.” “Meltdowns have to do more with something out of your child's control that's affecting them. So largely hungry, tired, sick, or overstimulated. A lot of times, too, I feel like a meltdown is when our expectations are off and we expect too much from the child, and they just can't even.” “During a tantrum, you might actually feel like you're meeting the devil.” “Big feelings are different from big reactions. And big reactions, yes, your child is having a big feeling. But it's a knee jerk reaction and their wires got crossed, their skin is inside out, and they just had this momentary freakout. And that can be about anything.” “All of these can meld and morph into each other. A big feeling, a big reaction can lead to a tantrum. Likewise, meltdowns can turn into a tantrum as well.” “Oftentimes, tantrums can happen literally because the child has to poop!” “When we look at what's normal or not - is it explainable? And if it is, let's do something about it. Because unexplained tantrums kind of edge into not normal.” “I was privy to MRIs of brains in kids every day from newborn to five years old, and if you saw the brain development, you would freak out. It's so rapid, it's so crazy. It just explains so much of why our kids are such whack jobs at this age, because it is this rapid brain development.” “Definitely at 4 and 5, your child may occasionally have a tantrum, of course. They're still little. They're still learning… But you should not see 4 and 5 [year-olds] having tantrums regularly. “A few a week are developmentally appropriate.” “Ten tantrums a day is too much.” “The biggest problem with brushing off out-of-the-norm behavior is that we're not getting to the root of the problem, and your child really could be suffering.” “If your child has no wherewithal of sort of ‘maintaining' good behavior with strangers or at school, then something could be wrong.” “If you have half-hour tantrums, that is of concern. Also, if your child has a really hard time coming out of a tantrum.” “Big feelings and reactions - that is where I feel very strongly about my Go To Your Room strategy… It's okay to have a big reaction. It's not okay to have a kid screaming in your face.” “You want the child to self-regulate, and that often has to happen on its own.” “How we handle meltdowns is you fix it!” “Overstimulated - be really cautious with your kid who's under 4. I really feel strongly that we should be keeping them away from overstimulation.” “A meltdown can happen because our expectations are too high.” “The arc of the tantrum starts, it's just like a curve. And so about a quarter of the way up, you do have this window of opportunity in which you may distract the tantrum. Distract the tantrum does not mean bribe your child.” “Once you've determined that they're gone, that's what I call it. They're gone. Just, don't try to logic. Don't try to distract them. Don't even look them in the eye.” “Think of it as a whole cycle, and they just have to get it out, and it has to complete itself.” “That's the arc of the tantrum. And I think that the biggest damage people do is trying to interrupt it or trying to stop it.” Links: Jamie's Homepage - http://www.jamieglowacki.com/ Oh Crap!

No one likes to suffer. We also don't like to talk about it because we think that we are the only ones who suffer or we think we are the only ones who suffer in THIS specific way… Bedtime battles, ditching the paci, getting your kid poop potty trained, whatever it is. So today on the show I want to talk about the difference between suffering and struggling and what you can do when you are suffering in your own parenting. Now let's address this unspoken suffering. Let's head to the show. IN THIS EPISODE: Laura Lynn explains the difference between struggling and suffering in your parenting; She shares specific ways she has suffered in her own parenting; and She illustrates what you can do when you are suffering in your own parenting to get out of the suffering state.

Topics that don't get as much attention as they should are when our kids have issues with potty training, experiencing bedwetting, and childhood constipation. I can understand because they're not the most glamorous topics, but some children experience these issues. And when it happens to your child, it can be worrying and frustrating. That's why we wanted to bring an expert on to our podcast to have this discussion. In this episode, our guest is Dr. Steve Hodges, an associate professor of pediatric urology at Wake Forest University School of Medicine. He is the country's leading authority on bedwetting, potty training, and childhood constipation. Dr. Hodges has authored numerous journal articles, and several books for children and parents, including Bedwetting and Accidents Aren't Your Fault and The M.O.P. Book: A Guide to the Only Proven Way to STOP Bedwetting and Accidents. He is a father of three and on a mission to inform families that bedwetting is totally misunderstood and highly treatable. And it might just be because your kid is experiencing childhood constipation! We're grateful to have Dr. Hodges on our podcast to answer our questions about potty training, bedwetting, and childhood constipation. He's giving us the real scoop on poop and sharing his expert advice and recommendations to parents out there. Let's welcome, Dr. Hodges!

#164: Did you know babies can potty from birth? I had no idea until my guest Andrea Olson from @godiaperfree came on the podcast to educate us about Elimination Communication (EC). EC is a gentle, non-coercive way to respond to a baby's natural hygiene needs...and Andrea is the diaper free GURU here to teach us how and why! Just like babies have the desire and ability to feed themselves solid food when the time is right, babies are instinctual when it comes to pottying. Andrea argues that pottying your baby can make baby-raising cleaner, easier, MUCH more connected to you plus it's better for the environment. If you think a self-feeding baby sounds exciting, I think you'll love hearing about your self-pottying baby's potential too! If you're ready to raise an independent eater and prevent picky eating then let's get started learning about baby-led weaning together! Subscribe, rate and review the podcast here.

Today's episode is a guest post from Go Diaper Free Certified Coach Tracy Gillett, who blogs at Raised Good and teaches parents EC (and many other things) in the Vancouver area of British Columbia, Canada. Here's an excerpt: “I read about Elimination Communication (EC). It blew my mind. I remember my husband's raised eyebrows when I told him about it. Was this a step too far? Could a helpless little baby seriously pee in a potty? But it made sense. And it felt natural. After all we're the only species in the animal kingdom using diapers. It didn't take much to convince us. We were intrigued and had to try it. But something I read didn't make sense. The suggestion was that the most important element of EC isn't actually potty training but, communication. What were they talking about?, I wondered. In our fast paced, have-everything-now world, isn't the purpose of EC to reach potty independence quickly? To reach the finish line, avoid misses, and get out of diapers as soon as humanly possible? That's what I assumed. But I was wrong.” Enjoy the rest of Tracy's story in today's episode!

Have you ever thought about using a reward system for your toddler or preschooler? Maybe bedtime battles are killing you right now. Or maybe you'd appreciate a happier morning routine. Maybe you've got a toddler who keeps getting out of his bed at naptime, or mealtimes have become a big pain in the butt. Whatever specific moment or situation is eating into your skin right now, maybe you've considered using a reward system. Or maybe you haven't. I've implemented multiple reward systems with my toddler and they have all been incredibly effective. But the best reward system is the one that won me my time and my freedom back, not to mention my peace of mind. If you've ever considered a reward system or you have an unwanted and undesirable situation brewing with your toddler right now, this episode is for you. Today I'll be sharing the ins and outs of the reward system that I used with my own toddler at naptime and how it created some much needed peace and sanity for this busy mama. Now let's get to it. Let's head to the show. IN THIS EPISODE: Laura Lynn shares how she's used different reward systems to target different unwanted situations with her toddler; She explains the reward system she used for naptime battles and how it gave back her time; and She illustrates that reward systems don't have to be complicated or hard to use… they can be really easy to use and super effective.

The phrase “Potty Training” can seem intimidating in and of itself but when you think about “Co-Parenting and Potty Training,” well, maybe you're even more unsure how you'll do it and how your toddler will respond. I don't want potty training to be daunting, scary, or intimidating for you, so today on the show I'm going to break down potty training while co-parenting, shed some light on the different ways it can look - because it will likely look differently for everybody - and help you feel more confident and at ease with potty training your toddler, even if your kiddo jumps from house to house, from one parent to the other. Let's dive right in and talk about co-parenting and potty training. Let's go to the show. IN THIS EPISODE: Laura Lynn explains three general ways potty training can look while co-parenting; She shares the important ways both parents can be on the same page about potty training to help with consistency; and She provides guidelines for how a parent can help facilitate potty training if the parent isn't able to fully participate in potty training.

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 as you're listening to the episode but it'll, more importantly, go off when you're with your kid, responding in the moment, using those parenting strategies. And when this happens, welcome yourself… because you've just stepped over the threshold into easier parenting. Now on to that secret, huh? Let's head to the show. IN THIS EPISODE: Laura Lynn boils parenting strategies down to one very easy to understand and manageable concept that will leave you feeling confident; She shares how your mind can play some nasty tricks on you when you're in the middle of managing your child's behavior; and She references many common parenting strategies and shows what they all have in common.

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. You're done with feeling frustrated at mealtime or bathtime or potty time or any time when your kiddo acts up and you only see those “BAD” behaviors. There's got to be an easier way, there's got to be joy to parenting otherwise parents would stop becoming parents, and you're ready to turn things around. If this sounds even just a tiny bit like you, of how you're feeling, this episode's for you. Let me tell you how to turn things around when you only see “BAD” behavior. Let's turn things around, shall we? Let's go to the show. IN THIS EPISODE: Laura Lynn explains the two things you can do when you only see “BAD” behavior; She illustrates how doing these two things is the foundation for any other parenting strategies you may use; and She shares a time in her own parenting when she felt stuck by “BAD” behavior.

You're ready for ease in your parenting, you're ready to enjoy parenting your child, and you really desire to feel confident in HOW you are parenting your child. Maybe the yelling is no longer working for you… one because long-term, it's not an effective strategy, two because you don't like what it's doing to your relationship with your child, and three you know that there has to be something BETTER and MORE to being a parent of a toddler.

I don't want you to stay in the muck and the mud. I don't want you to just push through and wait for the light at the end of the tunnel. I want you to find that light now. To create that light now. And you can do that by using parenting strategies that do, indeed, work. But yes, that means you'll have to make some changes. That means you'll likely have to switch up how you're responding in certain moments. But it's worth it, right? It's worth it to find that light. It's worth it to create ease in your parenting. It's worth it to enjoy being your child's parent. And it's worth it to feel confident in your parenting. Later in the show I'll share how you can begin creating that ease in your parenting to give you So, is using new parenting strategies really THAT hard? It's time to find out. Let's go to the show.

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 parenting that can not only improve your child's behavior in whatever moment that you're in - whether it be whining or tantrums or rough play or food on the floor - but that can also help you actually enjoy being a parent because, well, to be honest, you're good at it… because you're parenting your toddler beyond discipline and into this new way of looking at parenting. So if you're ready to see improvements in your toddler's behavior and you're ready to actually enjoy the process, buckle up. This is gonna be a fun show! So how do you discipline your child? Great question! Let's go to the show. IN THIS EPISODE: Laura Lynn discusses how we should first respond to our toddler's unwanted behavior instead of immediately going to “discipline”; She shares an example from her own parenting in how she taught important skills to her toddler instead of “punishing”; and She provides numerous examples of how we can teach our toddlers in the moment instead of ineffectively disciplining them.

Welcome to July's Q&A episode! Today I dive right in with some excellent questions about whether to allow “sexy” dolls like L.O.L Surprise Dolls in imaginary play, being aware of which franchises and marketing campaigns your children are exposed to, and how to encourage your child to play independently. I break down the relatively recent phenomenon of children expecting their parents to play with them and keep them entertained all day, and what you can do about it, even if you have an only child. Boredom is the basis for creativity, and it's okay to establish boundaries for time together versus adult time for you. I share the two simple, but powerful words you can use to stop a rude or sassy attitude in its tracks, and what to do if your child is “acting out” in physical ways but not necessarily melting down. Finally, as we slowly return to our busy lives after the pandemic, remember that work, relationships, and parenting demands can drain our energy resources quickly. I offer my perspective on why it's so important to rest, slow down, and pay attention to what activities feel restorative to you and your soul (reading, limiting social media, going for a walk in the woods) in this sometimes draining season of life. Thank you for your listening, and I appreciate your patronage more than I can say. For more information on my potty training and parenting resources, please visit the links below. The Finer Details of This Episode: Reminder to do strength training as it helps your body to heal itself Question about L.O.L Dolls, and whether to allow “sexy dolls” in imaginary play Make a conscious choice about which franchises and marketing campaigns your children are exposed to Watch your child's play for any signs of inappropriate behavior, and keep in mind that most of the time, these types of toys or images are not sexualized for the child When you absolutely do not allow a certain toy or word, it may just make it all the more desirable Monitor shows and movies that your kids are watching as well to be sure content and attitudes are in line with your values Sitcom zingers and one-liner jokes may seem innocuous, but they can be hurtful or create huge attitudes in real life What to do when it seems like your child can never get enough attention or one-on-one connection Don't let yourself drown or become resentful You need to hold a strong boundary because if you keep moving it, your kid will push even harder for that payoff in the end Kids are normally meant to play with other kids, and it isn't our job to make sure they are entertained and occupied all day It's okay to let you child be bored Make it very clear that there will be time when you play together, and time when they can do things by themselves Having “Reading Time” together is also a great way to not only encourage reading, but also for them to learn how to be with you without expecting to be entertained the entire time Boredom is the basis for creativity When your child is being rude or sassy, you do not need to point it out - simply ask them to try again When they are acting out, you don't want to give in or engage in negotiation - instead, acknowledge how they're feeling, give them the emotional vocabulary to explain why they're upset, but maintain that they still do the thing you asked them to do and thank them for it This helps teach emotional wisdom They may be acting out because they don't have the language to express how they feel, or they are afraid you may get mad at them if they do voice their feelings Work, relationships, and parenting can drain your energy resources quickly It's very important to rest, slow down, and pay attention to what activities feel restorative to you and your soul in this sometimes draining season of life Quotes “We have to all be really cautious about what we let into our house, knowing that there's marketing attached and franchising attached.” “I would watch the play… Is the play going into this weird sexy zone?” “If your child's in their room playing with their stuff, and it's cool, I wouldn't worry about it.” “It's really worth investigating what your kid is watching and making sure that the attitudes in the show are really great.” “If you think about a typical sitcom, they do a zinger. They do a one-liner, and then it cuts to a commercial or it cuts to the next scene. And you hear the canned laughter or maybe even a live studio audience. But you don't get to see how the zingers land.” “It's definitely worth watching stuff with your kids. Because what can seem really innocuous can create huge attitudes.” “It takes almost as much mental energy for me to coerce him to go play. So what that tells me is, if it takes you a lot of energy to get him to scram, it means you keep moving the boundary.” “If you move the boundary, then the kid's going to push even harder.” “This is the first time in history that adults have ever played with their kids or entertained their kids.” “What I would do, especially for the summer, I would definitely set a time and say, It's noon. This is the time that you spend by yourself. And I spend by myself,. You can go do anything you'd like in your room or outside. And I will set the timer and at one o'clock we can meet up again. And we can play a game together.” “Simply say, [Try] again. Generally speaking, when your kid is being rude or sassy, they are well aware that they are being rude and sassy. So you do not need to tell them they're being rude and sassy.” “You don't need to bring home like, You're being rude. They know they're being rude! They're trying to be rude. In fact, they're doing it to see if they can get away with it. So when you say, Try again, they know exactly what you mean.” “You can totally say, I see you stomping. I know you're upset with me. It's okay to be upset with me. And I'm really happy that you're doing the thing anyway.” “One of the things you really want to do is recognize when your child is acting out their emotions, because they may not have the words or they may not have the capability to tell you the words, or they are afraid you might get mad.” “We don't want them to be scared of us, we want them to use their words at all times.” “Start paying attention to where you feel fulfilled, where you feel rested. Even though you might be full of action, it still might be restorative to your nervous system, to your soul.” “It's not even about rest like that - you have to slow down everything - even though I highly recommend that. It's about figuring out your energy sources and where to put your best work.” “It's not just rest in the typical, Stop moving your body. But think of what's restorative to you.” “If we are constantly going, going, going, and if we are constantly providing stimulation for our kids and activities for our kids, they'll never know how to be bored.” Links: Jamie's Homepage - http://www.jamieglowacki.com/ Oh Crap!
