    Do Good Get Rewarded, Do Bad Get Punished....This Does Not Work!

    Everybody's waking up to the idea that maybe punishments aren't really working.

    In this episode we're going to discuss: 

    - Why large swaths of people are terrified of removing "the enforcers" and replacing it with support. 

    - What we as parents need to think about when it comes to how we're modeling support for our children. 

    - What this looks like in our day to day lives.

    How Do I Reintroduce My Child Back Into Society After COVID?

    How Do I Reintroduce My Child Back Into Society After COVID?

    Society is slowly getting back to normal. Public spaces are slowly opening up again and we are beginning to return back to some resemblance of a "normal routine".  

    Have you noticed that your child's behavior is getting worse during this transition time?  

    In this episode we're going to discuss:  

    - Why ending social isolation is just as stressful as starting it.  

    - The two reasons that are causing children to react poorly to seeing friends and family again, even if they're really excited about it.  

    - And two strategies I recommend using to ease this transition.

    When I Am Looking Into Parenting Support Is Certification Important?

    When I Am Looking Into Parenting Support Is Certification Important?

    It's extremely confusing when you start looking for parenting support. Coaches, therapists, doctors, interventionists...we've all got different names, do different things, and have different qualifications. But the most frequent qualification question I get is- why aren't you certified?!  

    In this episode I'm going to cover: 

    - What does "certification" mean in the coaching industry. 

    - What to look for when you're evaluating a potential support's qualifications. 

    - And how to choose the right parenting support for your family.
