    Can I Tell My Child How They Make Me Feel Without Shaming Them?

    Can I Tell My Child How They Make Me Feel Without Shaming Them?

    We want our children to learn emotional literacy but how can we talk about how we feel without placing the burden of responsibility for looking after our emotions? Is it wrong to tell children that their behaviour has an impact on others? How does shame play into this? Dr Martha shares her insight on these big topics and offers a simple, actionable framework of how to talk about your feelings and teach your children a valuable lesson in communication and relationships.

    I find playing with my child so boring. What can I do?

    Children want to play all day and it can feel relentless and dare I say it, even boring sometimes. What does play mean to your child? How can you be most effective when you join in play? And are there times when you can say no to your child and that be ok too? Dr Martha talks through all of this in more on this episode on play.

    How Do I Support My Child Moving Schools When They Don’t Want To?

    How Do I Support My Child Moving Schools When They Don’t Want To?

    When children move schools it can be one of the first transitions they have awareness of, and even if it’s the right decision, it can be hard. Before you can have a new beginning you need to have an ending. Dr Martha talks through what transitions can bring up for you and for your child, offering ideas to support you moving through this in a way that allows both you and your child to process the change and come out the other side feeling more connected.

ImoRoseHale ,

Thank you 😊

I found this episode so helpful. My little boy has been hitting and I now feel much more confident about how to deal with this. I will also be sharing this with my husband who has been struggling to cope with this behaviour too. Thank you Martha. Imogen x
