Up to this point in history, children have been seen as less than and parented in a way that uses power over a child. Most of us were parented in this way but there is a shift in thinking about the way we raise our kids. Parents don’t feel good about using shame, blame, criticism, punishments, and even rewards, to get their kids to listen. Parents are wanting a different way because they know from their own childhoods this type of parenting hurts and leaves us with scars we take with us through our adulthood.

Each one of my episodes is designed to help you navigate the difficult journey of parenting but in a way that is more peaceful and intentional. I’ll show you how to get your kids to listen and cooperate without yelling, punishments and rewards. I’ll show you how to understand your own feelings and those of your kids.

My intention is to bring you to a place where you feel connected with your kids and yourself (we often get lost when we become parents!). Tune in weekly for all the inside tips, tools and tricks I teach my private clients to help you build the family you always wanted, and to become the parent you always envisioned you would be. I promise to provide you with fun and entertaining content that will leave you seeing your kids and your reactions in a whole new light!

Please make sure to share the episodes that give you goosebumps, and leave you feeling inspired! I am always grateful for every person who subscribes, leaves a review and rates my podcast 5 stars.

    Independent, Purposeful Play

    Independent, Purposeful Play

    I hear from so many parents that they want to know how to encourage their kids to play INDEPENDENTLY.  This episode is all about encouraging independent, purposeful and imaginative play.

    Play is vital for kids because it provides an opportunity for them to develop the social, emotional and cognitive skills they need to succeed, not only in school, but in life.

    The Pitfalls of Praise

    The Pitfalls of Praise

    “When you compliment your children, praise them for inner qualities such as kindness, honesty and perseverance so they will strive to contribute to the world in meaningful ways.”
    ~Toni Schutta

    Many parents hold the mistaken belief that it’s important to shower our children with constant praise. Praising our children is instinctual, almost a reflex.  It’s hard to hold back when your child does something new or good!  We want to celebrate them!

    Tips on Returning to School During a Pandemic

    Tips on Returning to School During a Pandemic

    What we know about this coming school year, is how much we don’t know what will happen or what the school year is going to end up looking like. 

    Kids returning to school usually has us feeling mixed emotions.  We are excited to have them back to school, back to routine but we also can feel melancholy at the site of our kids entering a new grade, getting older and more independent.  Now we need to add in the uncertainty of going back to school during a pandemic.

    Are We Numbing Ourselves Through Parenthood?

    Are We Numbing Ourselves Through Parenthood?

    Have you been exposed to the booze or wine culture in parenting? Have you been invited or hosted playdates that include alcohol? Even if they are scheduled in the morning?

    Does wine and being a mom go hand in hand? if so, what does that say to your kids that "mommy needs wine to deal with you"? I talk to parents every day who are struggling in many different ways, and I know that many look forward to a glass of wine once the kids are in bed…I have done that many times too!

Great Advice

This has really helped me to think about myself and identify my emotions more to support them identifying and naming their own emotions. My son struggles to express himself and it manifests in bad behaviour. I now recognize the importance of showing empathy acknowledging their feelings more has helped me to connect better and has resulted in less meltdowns and most of awful better respect.

Thank you looking forward to listening to others

Highly recommended

These podcasts are Highly recommended!!! Definitely I give 5 million stars ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ All of them come with a powerful message and it’s so so so interesting to hear. Robbin has helped me to understand the children brain science and now that I understand the reason of their behaviour I’m much more tolerant and I have a total different perspective with a calm, peaceful and loving approach towards my sons. I can say that hearing about Robbin, reading her book and listening to her podcasts is a life changing, the best thing I have done since having my 2 sons (4 years old and 2 years old). Parenting is so so so hard and extremely challenging, especially when you are in a foreign country with no support of family. Unfortunately there is no diploma or test to pass in order to become an excellent parent although parenting is the most important job in our life. I was totally lost and hopeless going down the route of depression but Fortunately I have met Robbin: one of the most amazing, kindest and caring person and also a mum ❤️who has the great gift of teaching a parenting approach full of love, respect, empathy and sympathy and who very kindly shares it with the whole world 🌍 I can truly say that Robbin’s parenting approach is a life-changing. Highly recommended!!! Thank you so much Robbin for all you do. Many blessings to you and your family Lovely lady 💖

So helpful

I am a mum of a 5 and 7 year old who push me to my limits more than I knew possible! Before children I was a school teacher and behaviour management for 30 kids was never a problem! But give me two of my own...! Each episode of this podcast has resonated with me so much and has helped me to look within myself more. I am learning to emphasise with my son (the emotional one!) so much more, especially as we start a new school term and his behaviour is more challenging than its ever been. I’m so thankful to have found this podcast ❤️
