    Worn Down by a Toddler's Screaming, Testing, and Demands

    Worn Down by a Toddler's Screaming, Testing, and Demands

    A frustrated parent writes that she and her partner are feeling like failures because their 2.5-year-old is pushy and demanding to the point that they end up losing their patience and yelling. Most challenging of all is that the toddler screams when she doesn’t get her way -- and sometimes for no reason at all. Occasionally, they've screamed right back. “I know,” this parent admits, “a very low point.” Janet offers insights as to the cause of the child's behavior and a perspective shift to help ease this mom’s concerns while also improving their parent-child relationship dynamics.  
    Janet's "No Bad Kids Master Course" is available at NoBadKidsCourse.com and JanetLansbury.com.

    Is Parenting Too Hard? Consider Editing Your Job Description

    Is Parenting Too Hard? Consider Editing Your Job Description

    No matter how we approach raising our children, there are times we'll feel physically, mentally, or emotionally exhausted. Maybe all of the above. We’re only human, of course, but it may also be that we're taking on more than we need to --- depleting our energy with roles and tasks that are better left to our child. In this episode, Janet offers ideas for lightening our workload by recognizing and trusting our children's intrinsic abilities. Janet's job description reframe can help save our energy, nurture self-confidence, and at the same time foster a flourishing parent-child relationship.

    More Kids, More Conflict - How Can We Keep the Peace?

    More Kids, More Conflict - How Can We Keep the Peace?

    The parent of three young boys is struggling to deal with their demands and the conflicts between them. If she accommodates one boy’s wishes, the other two react with an opposing desire, jealousy, and fighting. She’s wondering how to cope with her situation when everything feels like a compromise. “Most of the time I feel like they’re either fighting with each other or fighting over me,” she says. “It’s exhausting.”

    Controlling, Rigid, Argumentative Behavior (What It Means and What We Can Do)

    Controlling, Rigid, Argumentative Behavior (What It Means and What We Can Do)

    Janet replies to the concerns of 3 different families who all share that they're struggling with their children's controlling, inflexible, and, in one case, possessive behaviors. The children range in age from 2 to 6, and Janet observes they all appear to have personalities on the intense side. One parent is particularly worried about how her son treats his peers when he doesn't get his way. She writes: "I worry he will lose friends or be unable to form deep connections if he yells and screams at his friends like this." Janet suggests a point of view for understanding and addressing these behaviors which can apply to almost any issue parents might face. She also offers examples of responses for the specific behaviors in each of these situations.
    Janet's "No Bad Kids Master Course" is available for pre-order at NoBadKidsCourse and JanetLansbury.

    (Encore) A Pep-Talk for Parents: Embracing Our Power to Be Confident Leaders

    Janet shares what she describes as her most valuable advice for parents -- a mindset that brings clarity to our role in our children's lives, makes our job more enjoyable and successful, and may even offer us personal growth. Janet explains why and how this perspective works, offers practical examples, and touches on some of the common issues that can get in our way. As parents, we tend to question ourselves: are we doing this parenting thing right, or are we failing? Janet's message is to afford ourselves the same trust and grace we hope to give to our children, to fully believe that we can do this!

    The Upside of Toddler Tantrums

    The Upside of Toddler Tantrums

    A parent is uncomfortable with her toddler's tantrums because her child seems so unreachable at these times. The parent's instinct is to reach out, soothe and reassure her child, but she realizes there is no way to get through to her when she's in the midst of it. She's hoping Janet has advice for how she might connect with respect and compassion. 
    Janet's 'No Bad Kids Master Course' is available for pre-order on her website www.janetlansbury.com or at NoBadKidsCourse.com.

Amazing!

Truly realistic and easy to relate to advice on parenting. Love how compassionate to my kid it makes me. I see the difference in behaviour when I respond respectfully.

hello I am a kid ,
