Morning Meltdowns - Asserting Our Boundaries with Connection and Confidence

A parent writes that her 4-year-old daughter begins each morning by screaming and wailing, and the routine has worn this mom down. ?It gets right under my skin,? she admits, ?and makes me want to run away.? While she does acknowledge her daughter?s emotions in these moments, tries to understand and be patient, she has to get ready for work and sometimes ends up yelling or crying herself. This mom wants to know: ?Just how long should I spend offering comfort before I make good on my plan to take care of my needs?? Thanks to Mack Weldon for sponsoring this episode.

It Will Get Easier - The Intense Struggles of a Parent with Childhood Trauma

A courageous ?Unruffled? listener shares how Janet?s respectful parenting approach seemed an impossible goal during a dark period of self-discovery, but it also presented a beacon of hope. As she struggled to come to grips with recovered memories of her childhood abuse, her relationship with her two young children was combative and destructive. She was left feeling like a complete failure, unable to parent in the loving, respectful way she had always imagined. Her journey to the other side of this despair is a story of strength and perseverance. Ultimately, her message to other parents is: ?The happiness is worth it. The joy is worth it. The connection with your kids is worth it. It?s all worth it.?

My Child Is So Mean to Me

A parent's email describes her 4-year-old daughter as smart, funny, incredibly strong-willed, but sometimes ?downright mean.? While she appreciates her child?s spirit and doesn?t want to stifle that, when she says mean things to her she doesn?t feel it?s enough to simply acknowledge her daughter?s emotions and let slide her hurtful words and behavior. ?I need her to find a better way to express that she is angry with me,? she writes. Janet offers a perspective on the situation that she believes will help this mom better understand her daughter?s unconscious motives and intent, and ultimately ameliorate the behavior.

Parental Burnout and a Reasonable Approach to Screens (with Dr. Meghan Owenz)

Janet?s guest is Dr. Meghan Owenz, a psychologist, professor, parent, and author. Meghan?s new book ?Spoiled Right: Delaying Screens and Giving Children What They Really Need? offers the latest research on the effects of screens on young children along with a plethora of practical alternatives. Both Janet and Meghan acknowledge that during the last many months of homeschooling, severely limited socializing, and close quarters, exhausted parents have understandably relied on screens to get some much needed (and deserved) break-time. The question many weary parents ask is: ?What do they do instead?? Meghan and Janet offer some answers. Thanks to Mack Weldon for sponsoring this episode.

When Your Child Keeps Ignoring Boundaries and Breaking Rules, Try This

Three different families write to Janet about their children's challenging behaviors. In one case, a 2.5-year-old has resumed an old behavior of hitting and scratching, ?but this time around it feels like he?s doing it with more purpose.? Another parent says that when their 5-year-old exhibits rude behavior and is called on it, he gets angry and accuses both parents of being mean to him. A third parent writes that her son loves rule breaking, often in dangerous situations, and that ?his eyes light up when we say ?no? to things.? All of these parents have exercised patience, but the behaviors continue, and so they've become frustrated and find themselves getting angry. Janet reveals a common thread and suggests a solution she believes will address these behaviors. Thanks again to Ritual Vitamins for supporting this podcast.

Race, Trauma, and Hope ? A Mother?s Healing Journey (with Cassandra Lane)

Cassandra Lane is an author, Editor-in-Chief of ?LA Parent Magazine,? and a mother (something she vowed she would never be). She joins Janet to discuss her new book ?We Are Bridges? in which her personal journey from a childhood of poverty and racism to motherhood is juxtaposed against the traumas and upheavals of her ancestors. Her artful storytelling, both memoir and historical imagining, reminds us that we are all inextricably linked to our ancestors, both genetically and experientially. "Not knowing one's story is like being buried alive," she says. It was by acknowledging and, ultimately, empathizing with the past that she became vulnerable enough to risk accepting love and eventually motherhood.

How Our Boundaries Free Children to Play, Create, and Explore

Janet discusses children's crucial need for boundaries and how our authentic responses can free kids up to create and explore. She shares a success story from a parent who says that her son began constantly demanding she draw pictures for him after she "made a rookie mistake? by drawing for him one time. From that moment on, her son became obsessed: ?Inside, he?d bring me crayons and paper, and outside, he?d bring me sidewalk chalk and demand drawings.? She quickly realized that she didn?t want to be drawing for him all the time and understood that this was a boundaries issue. Janet describes the common feelings that get in the way of our creating and maintaining boundaries with our children, how to overcome them and why everyone benefits.

Why Toddlers Won't Share and What We Can Do

A parent writes that for the past few weeks her son?s 3-year-old playmate will not share his toys. He cries, ?That?s mine? he can?t play with it,? tries to take the toys back, and often has meltdowns. While she says her boy doesn?t seem particularly fazed by the behavior, the other boy?s mother is distressed and confused about expectations she should set about sharing toys at home. The writer says: ?For my part, I?d begun to feel a bit protective for my son, while at the same time understanding that possessiveness is common and expected in children their age.? Since these two boys have been playing together exclusively during the pandemic, the parents want their interactions to be positive. Both parents are anxious to know what?s appropriate in terms of limits, expectations. and interventions and would like Janet?s advice. Thanks again to Ritual Vitamins for sponsoring this episode.

A parent is concerned that her 2.5-year-old won?t say hello or goodbye to adults, including people he?s familiar with like neighbors and teachers.

Don't Miss the Secrets Your Children Share

In response to a parent's question about her toddler's aggressive impulses toward her newborn sister, Janet suggests strategies for encouraging our children -- beginning in infancy-- to communicate their innermost thoughts, feelings and needs. This parent and her husband have followed Janet?s advice on siblings and believe they are ?doing a decent job supporting them both ? keeping our baby safe while acknowledging our toddler?s feelings.? And when their toddler acts aggressively, both parents are diligent about being present, calm, and physically intervening ?without judgment or fanfare.? A few times a week, however, when the toddler is alone with her mom, she will calmly say things like, ?When H gets bigger, I?m going to knock her down,? or other imagined acts of aggression. This mom wonders why her daughter is telling these stories ? whether she?s asking for help, or if it?s something else.
