How to Impact Brain Development to Help Kids Thrive with Rebecca Jackson
The very thought of what's going on in our child's brain probably baffles most of us. I mean, how many times might we contemplate why our, why our child acts the way that they do, or what made them meltdown in the grocery store, or flare up at their sister, freak out when they need to write a book report, bring food in their room, get up from the table and just leave their dish right there. I mean, wait a second. I might've just morphed into talking about my own kids there. Our children's brains and development are complex, but my next guest is going to simplify, simplify things for us so that we can help them get back on track.

How many of us have BEEN that parent with that child? No judgment- we are here to discuss it and get some strategies and scripts to all parents who have ever had some trouble with their young kids.

How to Talk to Kids about Living Boldly and Creating the Life they Want with Nicole Walters
We live at a time when many parents, out of love, do so much for their kids—so much so that kids are not learning the skills they need in order to thrive. This is one of the reasons why I created one of my free bonuses for the How to Talk to Kids about Anything book launch—118 Skills to Teach Kids by Age 18—a checklist of 118 skills that allows you to ensure your children are ready to thrive on their own by the time they leave your home. You can access that bonus list and several more at DrRobynSilverman.com, under the tab “book.” Now—what about when you are NOT raised in a home where your parents are doing a lot for their kids—maybe because they can’t, maybe because they won’t, maybe their life situation dictates that the children need to be independent to survive. Yes, what is you are raised in a home where you wonder if you’ll have food on the table and anger and shame are the norm? How can we learn to show up for ourselves, strategize ways to succeed, hustle, learn and become? And then, how, as a parent, can we instill these lessons so they can live boldly- no matter where they started in life? I think we can all learn something from my next guest who created the life she wanted by discovering the strength she needed was within her all along.
Love this podcast and Dr. Robyn
You are at a higher volume than the person you are interviewing. Making it difficult to listen and needing to constantly try change the volume. I can’t listen because you blow out my ears. Correct this simple thing in editing and I’ll correct my stats after I can listen without the struggle
This is a jewel
I came looking for direction after hitting my head on a wall while I parent my 3 kiddos and I’m so glad I found this podcast. I left feeling hugged and empowered to do better and practical solutions for things I was feeling overwhelmed with. So thankful and the host is just so kind and endearing… again I just felt hugged and like I went to therapy
