    3 Hints for Parents Working at Home

    3 Hints for Parents Working at Home

    Two families reach out to Janet for help because they are struggling to get work done at home. Separating from their young children causes whining, crying and tantrums, which in turn interrupts and frustrates the parents. One parent writes: ”My son has significant tantrums about why daddy has to work… I really can’t take the tantrums anymore every time he sees or hears him.” With so many parents at home these days trying to navigate this dynamic, Janet offers 3 suggestions for how they can communicate respectfully with their young children and help to establish boundaries.

    Engaging in Your Child's Play Without Interrupting

    Engaging in Your Child's Play Without Interrupting

    A parent hopes to encourage her 21-month old’s self-directed play by sitting with her in her play area observing, “ready to respond if she engages with me.” Lately, she says, her daughter has been asking for help with tasks she can do by herself, and also actively directing both she and her husband to perform various roles. “She wants us to play, and she will watch.” This mom feels this dynamic may be stifling self-direction, so she’s wondering if Janet has any suggestions how she can encourage her daughter’s play without participating herself, while still letting her know she is present and engaged.

    The Power of Bias and How to Disrupt It in Our Children (with Dr. Jennifer Eberhardt)

    The Power of Bias and How to Disrupt It in Our Children (with Dr. Jennifer Eberhardt)

    Dr. Jennifer Eberhart, author of the best-selling book “Biased: Uncovering the Hidden Prejudice That Shapes What We See, Think, and Do,” joins Janet to discuss how racial bias develops in the brain and creates disparities in our neighborhoods, schools, workplaces, and the criminal justice system. As the mother of three sons, Jennifer has also witnessed the effects of bias in real time. She and Janet explore some of the steps parents can take to combat the development of bias in their children. "Preschoolers are picking this up and determining who's a good person, who's a bad person… They need our help in comprehending what's going on around them and helping them to make sense of it."

    Jennifer is a Stanford University professor and a faculty director of SPARQ , a university initiative to use social psychological research to address pressing social problems. She has been named a MacArthur Fellow, one of “Foreign Policy”’s 100 Leading Global Thinkers, and elected to both the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the National Academy of Sciences.

    How to Make No Mean No

    How to Make No Mean No

    A frustrated parent writes that her almost 7-year-old will not accept no for an answer. When she wants something, she will whine and ask repeatedly to get her way. Her daughter is so relentless that this mom eventually loses her patience. She ends up screaming, and her daughter ends up crying. “I must be addressing the situation wrong at the first ask,” she admits. “I just don’t understand how she doesn’t get no means no.” This mom is hoping Janet can help her end this constant battle with her daughter.

    It's Not Regression

    It's Not Regression

    A parent describes the stress her family has been experiencing over the past several months and believes her 4.5 year old son has been particularly affected. “He was in Montessori and becoming very independent. Little by little, we’ve seen a huge regression in his behavior.” She describes a number of issues where she sees her son regressing, including hitting, kicking and throwing things; disrespecting her body with unwanted touching; and an unwillingness to wipe himself after using the toilet. This last issue recently caused a physical altercation which this mom truly regrets. She wants to know how to encourage her son’s developing independence “without resorting to negative and hurtful parenting tactics.” Janet offers her advice.

    Raising Anti-Racist Children - A Holistic Approach (with Kristen Coggins)

    Raising Anti-Racist Children - A Holistic Approach (with Kristen Coggins)

    Kristen Coggins is a respiratory therapist, a positive discipline educator, a mom, and a Black woman, so she is very much in the eye of the current storm with a first-person perspective of the history unfolding around us. Krissy and Janet discuss the positive steps parents can take right now toward raising empathetic, anti-racist children, starting with the hard work of self-reflection with compassion. As Krissy writes: “Being able to appreciate the full humanity of another person is fostered in how well you see yourself and how well you see your children. Do you treat them like whole people with their own thoughts, feelings and desires? Everything is cyclical.”

Invaluable Parenting Support

I honestly love Janet Lansbury’s podcast and have been listening to it for years. Her advice deeply resonates with me and how I want to raise my child. This format of short, informative advice is so practical for a time-constrain parent and I usually find someone asking the exact same question I need help with.

Love this podcast

So insightful! I look forward to getting the notifications that a new ep is live xx

why no name? ,

Amazing and practical

I’m so thankful for this podcast! I love that she gives specific situations, with respectful responses that are calm and firm. She’s literally changed my parenting, I would have defaulted into undesirable ‘learned’ behaviours that were past down to me. A great chance to stop the cycle of authoritarian parenting with useful tools and reminders for our expectations when parenting little humans!
