    When Children Seem Troubled by Our Emotions and Moods

    When Children Seem Troubled by Our Emotions and Moods

    A parent writes that she and her husband are concerned their toddler feels responsible for their emotions. This is a trait they both recognize from their own backgrounds. “He asks again and again, ‘Happy, mommy?’ as if he’s trying to help me be happy.” This mom says that if she admits that, no, she is not entirely happy at the moment, he gives her hugs and cuddles and persists in asking if she's happy. While these parents want to foster their child’s empathy and sensitivity, they don’t want him taking on the burden of other people’s emotions. They’re hoping Janet has some advice to help manage this delicate balancing act.

    It Had to Be You - The Struggles and Joys of Raising a Child with Disabilities (with Loryn Brantz)

    It Had to Be You - The Struggles and Joys of Raising a Child with Disabilities (with Loryn Brantz)

    Loryn Brantz is an author, illustrator, and comic creator raising a daughter with disabilities. Dalia was born with a rare genetic abnormality that made feeding an all-night process, and doctors were not confident she would ever crawl, much less walk. Throughout their journey, Loryn has supported Dalia with acceptance, optimism, and love. In return, she is continually inspired. “I see her disability and her uniqueness as part of what makes her so amazing and special. And everything she does is going to be more amazing because of what she’s had to go through to get there.” Janet believes Loryn has found the formula for happiness as a parent – accepting, cherishing, and truly enjoying our children for who they are.

    Finding Our Best Response to Children's Turbulent Emotions

    Finding Our Best Response to Children's Turbulent Emotions

    Janet responds to emails from parents who describe struggling with their children’s strong emotions. One writes that her 2-year-old rejects her comfort when he has a meltdown: “It breaks my heart, and I feel like I must be doing something wrong.” Another writes that her 7-year-old says he doesn’t feel love from his mother. Another email describes how a 3-year-old’s tantrums last all afternoon and into the evening, disrupting the rest of the family’s routine, and they “all feel trapped by a 3-year-old.” And a therapist observes that her child holds in emotions in front of family and peers. Janet identifies the common thread in all these situations and offers a hopeful answer to weather the storms.

    How to Stop Feeling Frustrated by Your Child's Behavior - A Family Success Story

    How to Stop Feeling Frustrated by Your Child's Behavior - A Family Success Story

    Janet shares a family's inspiring success story about dealing with their 3.5-year-old’s repeated, seemingly wanton problem behavior. The parent admits that both she and her husband were frustrated and “triggered” by the behavior, and they reacted with anger and scolding. The situation came to a head when their boy started lying about his actions, which was particularly hurtful to his dad. After reading some of Janet’s advice, they were able to consider their child’s POV with empathy and realize how their reactions may have “made the truth feel unsafe or uncomfortable.” They changed their approach completely and now feel confident their relationship with their child can survive any future storms.

    Morning Meltdowns - Asserting Our Boundaries with Connection and Confidence

    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?”

Huge effects on my family

My husband and I have been listening and reading Janet Lansbury ever since we were expecting our first child. I learned so much from her that it changed me. My husband another day said he strives to become as centered as I am. We often recommend this podcast to our friends. Thanks Janet for sharing your wisdom with the world.

This podcast made me a better parent

I listen to this podcast regularly and can honestly say it’s shaped the way I view my child and parenthood. I feel so connected to my son and know our relationship is based on trust and truth. The respectful parenting approach Janet outlines has been so helpful to my family. It’s been the best way to form a genuine bond with my child that will last our lifetime. I always feel empowered and supported after listening to this podcast. It’s one of my main resources I depend on when I’m feeling frustrated or overwhelmed with parenthood. I’ve recommended it to many fellow parents. Can’t say enough positive things about it!

She knows what she likes ,

A must listen!!

Absolutely love and have depended on this pod cast for 2 years now. Thank you for your continuing support for parents and children.
