    Parental Burnout and a Reasonable Approach to Screens (with Dr. Meghan Owenz)

    Parental Burnout and a Reasonable Approach to Screens (with Dr. Meghan Owenz)

    Janet’s guest is Dr. Meghan Owenz, a psychologist, professor, parent, and author. Meghan’s new book “Spoiled Right: Delaying Screens and Giving Children What They Really Need” offers the latest research on the effects of screens on young children along with a plethora of practical alternatives. Both Janet and Meghan acknowledge that during the last many months of homeschooling, severely limited socializing, and close quarters, exhausted parents have understandably relied on screens to get some much needed (and deserved) break-time. The question many weary parents ask is: “What do they do instead?” Meghan and Janet offer some answers.

    Attention-Getting, Inappropriate Behavior

    Attention-Getting, Inappropriate Behavior

    A parent writes that her 3.5-year-old just started pre-school and has been bringing home some new behaviors like “lifting her dress to expose her bottom… or making poop and fart sounds.” She especially likes to perform these behaviors for her grandparents or when company comes over. “I like to be funny,” she says. This mom has tried several strategies to reign in her daughter, including ignoring the behavior, but so far without success. Janet offers perspective on both the little girl’s behavior and her parent’s reaction to it that she believes will help this situation and their relationship.

    Can We Be Angry or Sad and Still Unruffled?

    Can We Be Angry or Sad and Still Unruffled?

    A parent struggles to control emotions like anger, frustration, and disappointment when they’re triggered by her toddler. While she strives to be a confident leader by appearing calm and unruffled, she also wants to model her emotions authentically for her child. Janet clarifies what it really means to be "unruffled" and how parents can approach this goal without faking or stuffing their emotions.

    Mealtime Manners Begin with Babies

    Mealtime Manners Begin with Babies

    Janet offers advice for handling some of the most common complaints parents share about their children's mealtime behavior: throwing food on the floor, leaving and then returning to the table, refusing to eat certain foods, and lingering endlessly. Janet shares her view that all of these behaviors reflect 3 basic needs children have at mealtime, and by recognizing and filling those needs, the behaviors ultimately subside.

Thank you all the way from New Zealand!

I stumbled across Janet Lansbury a year ago, in a desperate quest to quell the feeling of drowning in the chaos of three small children under five. Her podcasts and books have revolutionised our lives. Our children are whole and balanced and my husband and I are learning to reverse the cycle of our strict and traditional upbringings. Thank you for the learning journey we are now on. We will be forever grateful. X
