    Sleep Hygiene: What Does it Look Like?

    In this weeks episode of The Playful Psychologist, I explore sleep hygiene.

    Managing the Public Meltdown

    Managing the Public Meltdown

    In the final episode for Season 6, I am joined by Genevieve Muir from Connected Parenting to discuss the dreaded public meltdown. We've all been there...a busy shopping centre, people everywhere, and your little one becomes overwhelmed/overstimulated and just loses their cool. This episode is going to break down ways to manage these situations and also explores the impact they have on us as parents. This episode will explore the following questions:

    1. What does a public meltdown look like and what are they often triggered by?
    2. What feelings are often underlying that meltdown for a child?
    3. Is the experience of a public meltdown is just as tough for the parent?
    4. What can parents do to help a child work through a meltdown in public where you may not have access to your usual strategies?

    Navigating School Holiday Meltdowns

    In this week's episode of The Playful Psychologist, I am joined once again by Jacquie Ward from The Brave Space to talk about school holidays. More often than not, parents feel like the 'wheels fall off' in the school holidays and that behaviour can in fact be worse, despite there being less pressure on our kids. In this episode, Jacquie and I discuss why this may happen and offer some advice on how to navigate this with your children.
