    Healing a Child's Anger (a Powerful Success Story)

    Healing a Child's Anger (a Powerful Success Story)

    Janet shares a parent’s dramatic story recounting how she overcame her fear and doubt to allow her 6-year-old to express explosive emotions. In a wonderfully detailed e-mail to Janet, this mom describes a feeling of distance from her son and the respectful – albeit difficult, loud and sometimes scary – steps she took to welcome his “messy and uncomfortable” feelings and let them play out. In retrospect, she says she now understands what it means to trust her child’s feelings and recognizes that “this is what really deep emotional healing looks like.”

    How to Help Your Child Engage More Successfully with Peers

    How to Help Your Child Engage More Successfully with Peers

    A parent consults with Janet about her son's struggles to interact socially with other kids. She feels he has no real friends and offers several examples where her son’s behavior becomes aggressive and unwelcome by playmates. He then becomes “sad and frustrated.” She writes: “As a mom, my heart breaks because I see him struggle to make a best friend. It seems like the kids at preschool click with at least one other person really well, and I just don’t feel like he does.” This mom says she feels stuck and confused and is hoping Janet can offer a way to help her son.

    Embracing Our Power to Be Confident Leaders (a Pep-Talk for Parents)

    Embracing Our Power to Be Confident Leaders (a Pep-Talk for Parents)

    In this year-end episode, 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 Best Way to Encourage Toddler Manners

    The Best Way to Encourage Toddler Manners

    A parent is concerned that her 2.5-year-old won’t say hello or goodbye to adults, including people he’s familiar with like neighbors and teachers. This mom says that she's tried to encourage her son's manners through modeling. She also once coaxed him to say goodbye to his teacher, but he refused. Since that time, he's become even more resistant and sometimes yells at people not to talk to him. At this point, she says, “It would even be fine if he ignored people" rather than yelling. She’s hoping Janet has some insight into what’s going on with her son and how she can help him get in the habit of politely greeting adults.

You are my saviour

I was going through a very rough time this month with my toddlers and listening to you has changed so much in the way I spend time with them. I finally am again looking forward to seeing my 3 kids and understand so much more what was holding me back. It was me! Thank you thank you!!

Wish I’d known this from the beginning

The more I listen, the more firmly I am convinced that Janet’s approach is one of the great ideas of our era. Her game-changing advice is so sage, kind, and useful. Whenever I feel uncertain, unhappy or unconfident as a parent, I seek out Janet’s blog or podcast and find the solution to whatever issues I’ve been facing. Her kid-respectful philosophy is so valuable not just to parents and children but to society as a whole. If only we could all have been brought up by parents and caregivers with these values and this approach, we’d live in a happier, calmer, better world.
