How to Be Empathetic When Our Kids Are Being Defiant with Guest Liz

Defiant and strong-willed children are something I?m sure we?ve all experienced. Whether it?s as toddlers or teenagers, it?s a tale as old as time in the book of parenting. Sometimes when this defiance is targeted towards you or their siblings, it can lead to further conflict so you want to find a way to properly nip that in the bud.  

As a mother of two young girls, my guest, Liz, is no stranger to these frustrations so she and I will discuss her dynamics with her daughters, how to manage conflict and negative emotions in their family, and the importance of taking care of herself because even mommies need a little self-care too.

The path of connective parenting is a lot of hard work, but the loving relationship we?ll create with our kids will make all of it worth it, so make sure to tune into this episode!

 

Episode Highlights:

Leaning into play when our kids are frustrated or defiant Setting consequences without punishment How to deal with the sibling rivalry between Liz? daughters Responding to our kids? resentment with empathy and self-care How to handle tantrums and turn them into an opportunity to form a connection

 

Are you ready to change your family dynamic through connective parenting? Work with me one on one and together we?ll hone in on the sources of discontent and chaos, and find solutions that are specific to your family?s needs. It doesn?t matter if you are married or single, if you parent alone or you want to do this with your parenting partner.

Harsh Parenting Creates Children Who Make More Mistakes

When your child makes a mistake, you want to help them process and understand their mistake without the use of shame, punishments, or making them feel like you?re disappointed in them. 

Harsh parenting does absolutely no favors for us or our kids, and as a parent who used to subscribe to that kind of parenting, I want to take the time to talk about this, and share how shifting my mindset towards a more conscious and connective one has done more good for my family than any punishment has.

There are no shortcuts to connective parenting but I hope this episode can help you get started! 

 

Episode Highlights:

Why it?s problematic for kids to worry over their parent?s reaction more than the actual mistake Punishments impede our kids? ability to think properly How conscious parenting can change you and your family?s life for the better

Why Is Play So Hard Sometimes with Guest Emily Murray from Hand in Hand Parenting

Many of us have had experiences with bottling up emotions, and kids are no exceptions to this. Kids aren?t as capable of properly communicating their emotions so when there?s a backlog of feelings like frustration and sadness, this can make them act out so they can vent. This can be equally frustrating for parents too but it is possible to connect with your kids in a way they can easily understand.

For this episode, I?m joined by Emily, a member from the Hand in Hand Parenting group and she will share with us one of their five listening tools for parents-- playlistening! Play is an important aspect of kids? lives and it can be used as a better response to unsavory behavior over shame and encourages you to meet aggression with affection.

Hand in Hand Parenting has been instrumental in my journey to become a better parent for my daughters, and I hope this will help any of you having similar struggles so don?t forget to listen in!

 

Episode Highlights:

Playlisten as a form of connection through play There is a time to be silly and there is a time to seriously connect Why playlistening wasn?t appealing to Emily at first Children are good and they want to be good Why play can be hard for parents The benefits of playlistening

Behavior Analysis and Parenting: Questions from Guest Shelly

Our kids have the right to say ?no? and have choices. But it?s a delicate balancing act between that and making sure not to give in to everything they say either. Since kids also have underdeveloped brains, it can be difficult for them to properly communicate their negative emotions which can put them into conflict with their parents and other kids. This challenge is a natural frustration for parents and is something my guest is familiar with.

Shelly Belk, behavior change coach and mother, joins me for this episode to ask me questions on parenting, and how she can better reconcile her background in behavior analysis while raising her daughter with empathy. We?ll always discuss the importance of allowing our children to experience and fail; to be the counselor and confidant rather than the fixer of their problems.

Don?t miss out on this week?s episode so we can help our kids navigate their feelings and create healthier connections with them!

 

Episode Highlights:

How can we navigate with kids who are good at negotiating Empathizing with our kids and allowing them to feel and process their negative emotions Teaching our kids to respect other kids? boundaries without making them submissive Lean into inconsistency and expect the feelings

The Case Against The Cry It Out Method with Guest Rachel from Hey Sleepy Baby

For many parents, the first six to twelve months of their baby?s life are probably one of the most stressful thanks to sleep deprivation.

For this week?s episode, I?ve invited Rachel, a pediatric sleep specialist, to share with us her experience and realizations with sleep training her baby, and how it isn?t as easy as tucking them into bed and calling it a night.

So listen in on this episode as Rachel shares her experience, and I offer ways to help ease this adjustment period!

The Cry It Out Method and the psyche behind it Rachel?s experience with sleep training her baby The effects of The Cry it Out Method on a baby?s cognitive development  Applying Connective Parenting Methods and empathy to sleep training

Presence vs. Fixing with Guest Rivkie

Change is a choice. Sometimes it may be a difficult one and requires a lot of effort.

How to Stop Yelling

When we believe our children are being difficult, we tend to use yelling to make them listen to us. But yelling can only go so far before it starts to form cracks in the relationship with our kids and leave them with emotional scars that might never go away. At some point, we need to ask ourselves: Is my child?s obedience worth losing their love and respect?

In this solo episode, I share my experience of being a parent who used to yell and how I continue to overcome that urge with hopes that I can encourage other parents to do the same.

Remember, the road of parenthood is not paved with fear, but with love. 

 

Episode Highlights:

How yelling played a role in my life How yelling can jeopardize our relationship with our children  Using connection and empathy as a replacement for yelling  My advice on how to calm down and process your emotions The long-term effects yelling has on our children

 

Looking for ways to parent without yelling or threatening? Do you want to start using connection to better handle and guide your kids? I know I?ve definitely been there. Through my years of learning and experience, I?ve started to reach out and help other parents overcome their parenting challenges with a much calmer and empathetic approach. You can check out my mini-course called How to Stop Yelling right here!

Chitra?s Journey into Connective Parenting

Traditionally, children are meant to obey their parents without question and any sign of defiance is met with punishment. We believe that our child?s behavior is a reflection of us as parents and that opens us up to judgment from others. No one wants to be labeled as a ?bad parent? but just because something is accepted as the norm doesn?t always mean it?s automatically right either.

Chitra Pen?a, a member of the Peace and Parenting community, sits down with me to share her story and experiences in moving towards a more conscious parenting method and its results-- including her relationship with her children and her confidence in herself as a parent. Additionally, we?ll also dive into the effects of conventional parenting on the emotional well-being of both the parents and children. 

Don?t forget to tune into this episode so we can help you forge a healthier relationship with your family!

 

Episode Highlights:

Chitra?s journey towards conscious parenting How she processed her thoughts and feelings when her child experienced hurt  Deviating from conventional parenting and how she dealt with the judgment Parenthood is not meant to be a hierarchy  The emotional cost of conventional parenting on your child and yourself

The Power of Listening Partners with Cassie and Lindsay

Parents try to prop themselves up as these invincible figures who aren?t affected by sadness or fear, but that couldn?t be further from the truth.

When that happens, it?s good to have someone who's willing to empathize and listen.

For this episode, I?ve invited two members of the Peace and Parenting community, Cassie and Lindsay. They have been listening partners for over a year and they will share with us how opening up to another person and learning to listen has aided them in becoming better parents and partners.

Peaceful Eating with Gitte for Real Food Hero

So many parents and families struggle with pickiness in children?s eating habits. Our guest today, Gitte, has figured out what exactly might be the problem. With years in child psychology, she believes that the problem doesn?t lie in the food-- but rather their experience during mealtime.

Gitte has developed a 4-week course called Real Food Hero, where she teaches us how to take back our mealtimes and allow our kids to grow a healthy relationship with food.

Be sure to tune in on this episode so we can help our kids develop good eating habits!

 

Episode Highlights:

Why pickiness is not about the food, but the environment during mealtimes Gitte?s experience during mealtime with her kids Letting go of controlling what they eat at the table Why bribing or threatening our kids isn?t the answer Late night bites before bed are not necessarily a bad thing Changing how we see sweets and treats, using them in moderation

Do Our Children Have the Right to Say ?No? with Guest Sterna

When our child says ?no? it can send us into emotional turmoil both because of how we were raised and how society views a child who stands up for themselves. But no doesn?t need to be a dirty word, and our children need to have the space to explore standing up for themselves. If they aren?t allowed to do it at home how can they ever set boundaries as they grow up. What of yes too, if we are insisting on ?yes? is that yes we receive authentic or is it coerced somehow and only used as a way to please us?

 

Sterna is my guest today, she helps us unravel this sticky parenting moment, and gives us her incredible insights into why no is more than just a child being defiant on purpose and ways we can work through the moments when our children use no.

 

Episode Highlights:

Why ?No? isn?t always bad Collaboration works better than blind obedience Letting go of complete control Respecting our kids, so they respect us

 

How can we ?shame proof? our parenting?

There are ways we can eradicate shame from our everyday interactions with our children.

Using Connection to Help with Aggression with Guest Ashley

Aggression is a common occurrence in children and we see it often when there?s a new sibling. It is a fear response and one that can be tricky to unravel. 

If we take a global look at our child and work on ways to build in connective practices while also allowing the tantrum to fully occur we can get movement with aggression. 

Long time listener Ashley fully understands the modes of Peace and Parenting it?s just a pep talk she needs to reassure her she?s on the right path. 

 

Episode Highlights:

Aggression is fear, fear of needs not being met The connective nature of tantrums are therapeutic Empathy for feelings of jealousy can help offload feelings

How to Use Connection to Help Move Through Thumb Sucking

Kids have different ways to cope with stressful situations. Some resort to more vocal ways-- while others tend to go inward as a way to cope with what?s hard in life. It?s hard for us to know exactly how to approach them with love and kindness while still helping them move through tough behavior.

Joining me this episode is a follower and active participant on the Facebook group, Jillian. 

Jillian, like so many of us, struggles with a behavior that she can?t quite figure out how to navigate. We take a look at the whole child, the underlying and the more obvious and try to find ways to meet her daughter where she is using connection. 

I know others struggle with thumb sucking and pacifiers and hope this episode is helpful.

              

Episode Highlights:

Familial background The root cause of thumb sucking  What we can do to curb it without the use of shame

The Case Against Mindfulness Jars and Cool-Down Corners

At some point in your child?s life, they will experience things which may cause overwhelm, and we won't be able to prevent them from feeling these tough emotions. However, we can be the safe place for them to be when things are tough. 

Having deep empathy for our children and allowing them to fully emote helps those feelings pass, be processed so our child can move forward and be the cooperative kind kid they are meant to be.

Mindfulness Jars, Cool Down Corners and Breathing Techniques may "get" kids to calm down, but at what expense? Where have the feelings gone and what will then glean from our expectation of calm? Listen in as Michelle explains just this.

 

Episode Highlights:

What are the pitfalls of mindfulness jars and cool-down corners and breathing techniques? What can you do when things are difficult for your child? Being empathic shows unconditional love. What is co-regulation and how can we model it? Telling our child they need to calm down might be giving them the wrong message. Having empathy and holding space for your kids to release their feelings is the key to expelling upsets they may be stuck

Self-Healing and Conscious Motherhood with Jennifer Gardner

There are tons of ways to cope with the inevitable challenges brought about by motherhood, and it doesn't always have to be something that involves alcohol.

When you have a very demanding job and very demanding kids plus a husband you need to take care of, it can get very overwhelming. You're tired and sometimes, you just turn to drink alcohol to help ease your burden a little bit.

Wine is a good way to treat yourself for a job well done but turning to alcohol to deal with your kids and responsibilities at home ain't funny.

You want to raise your kids the best way possible but you're unsure of how to do it with everything that you got on your plate. What should you do? 

In this episode, I'm joined by Jennifer Gardner, a lovely member of our community and a mother of two. Jennifer's going to share how the method of parenting that she discovered changed the way in which she approaches motherhood, parenting, and ultimately helped her become a better version of herself!

This conversation with Jennifer will remind you of why you wanted to be a parent and the joy of being one as she talks about her healing journey, and that there is another way to parent, one that helps you connect with your child!

 

Episode Highlights:

How conscious parenting has helped Jennifer in her motherhood journey Self-care and Jennifer's healing process Transparency and teaching your kids that it's okay to not be perfect Vulnerability and modeling How to really be there for your child without hindering their growth 2 impactful things that Jennifer's learned through conscious parenting Getting curious

Redefining Parenting: Cooperation, Not Control with Hannah and Kelty of Upbringing

Resistance is just something that comes with parenting, be it telling our kids to turn off their phones or brush their teeth.

But-- that doesn?t always have to be the case. We as parents can make the conscious choice to prioritise our personal relationships, using them to teach our kids what has to be done for themselves, effectively building up their own independence and self-control.

In today's episode, I have Kelty and Hannah from Upbringing, here to discuss a new approach to connecting with our kids, so we can raise young adults that have a stronger sense of self and a more stable approach to life.

They believe that by choosing to connect with our kids instead of controlling them, it can result in a relationship that positively reinforces self-discipline and accomplishing tasks for themselves-- instead of them simply following our words.

 

Episode Highlights:

Who They Are The parenting dynamics of old Why the old dynamics need to change What you can do instead of power-parenting Focus on building relationships with your kids How to approach your kids to get a better response Kids and their safe spaces

 

About our Guests:

 

Hannah and Kelty currently run Upbringing-- an inclusive community that promotes the elevation of growth and connection. Through their beliefs in parenting, they work to redefine how we raise our kids while avoiding the conventional beliefs of old.

Holding a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Stanford, the two have grown to become certified Parent Educators through the Positive Discipline Association, Family Life Coaches, and completed programs that focus on mindfulness-based stress reduction.
