    Transcript of Picky Eating Gone Bad: Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder

    This is beyond your child not wanting to eat vegetables! They won’t eat anything hot or even warm to the touch. Maybe they won’t eat anything that crunches in their mouth. Maybe they cry every time you put brown items on their plate. Perhaps you can’t go out to restaurants because they won’t eat anything that isn’t cooked in your kitchen.

    Picky eating comes in many forms, but what happens when picky eating has taken a drastic turn for the worse? Now, you’re really worried. Every meal is a battle, and you can see it’s affecting their health. Maybe your child is 6, or maybe they are 16. It doesn’t matter. Forcing your child to eat a balanced meal is impossible. This isn’t anorexia. Your child isn’t bulimic. This is when picky eating goes bad.

    Transcript of How To Discipline With Connection

    You might be screaming and yelling at your kid. Maybe you’ve tried taking everything away, their phone, their freedom, maybe you have even tried taking off their bedroom door. Or perhaps you’ve tried the opposite approach. Have you tried gifting your child with everything you never got growing up so that your child will be happy and listen to you? Maybe you have tried both techniques, and nothing works. You’ve just ended up with an ungrateful child who won’t listen and talks back.

    Yikes. That’s frustrating. You’re probably wondering, ”What’s wrong with my child?” Or you could be asking, ”How can I fix this? What am I doing wrong?”

    Today, I will talk to you about positive discipline. How you can discipline your child in a way that is effective and still doesn’t ruin the parent-child relationship like hitting, taking everything away, or yelling at your child can do. I will be giving you the six step process you need to see a change in your discipline and stick around to the end because I will also be giving you some free resources to check out that will also help you in this process.

    Summary of the interview:

    Cindy Vallone is a busy wife, mom of two teenage boys, and an entrepreneur.  She and her family have been using essential oils for over six years and have made over their medicine cabinet. Today, they use essential oils as their first line of defense for “head to toe” wellness. Cindy advocates for essential oil use in families, whether for physical, emotional, or mental wellness. Cindy buys and sells her essential oils from the company DeTerra, where she is a representative. Cindy can also help you purchase the best products for your family.

    Video clock summary:

    An introduction to essential oils and the show

    What are essential oils? How are they made? Cindy explained that essential oils are derived from plants and nature.

    How did Cindy get into essential oils? Turns out that Cindy started out as a skeptic. She did not believe that essential oils would work to improve her headaches until a friend of hers encouraged her to try essential oils for her migraines.

    How long does it take to see the effects of essential oils? Cindy explains that some essential oils have immediate effects and results depending on what you use the essential oils for.

    What to look for in purchasing essential oils. Many grocery stores and other realtors do NOT sell pure essential oil blends. It is important to look out for harmful additives. DeTerra’s essential oils are all 100% pure, and that is why Cindy trusts this particular brand for herself and her family.

    How can I use essential oils? Cindy explains 3 ways to use essential oils: topically, aromatic, and ingestion.

    What essential oils can I use for sleep? Cindy gives options

    What essential oils can I use for stress? Cindy gives options

    Transcript for When One Parent Undermines The Other

    This has got to be one of the most frustrating things as a parent.

    You make rules for your kids to protect them. You give them boundaries to help guide them to make good choices. THEN suddenly, in the middle of making or reinforcing your rules, your co-parent steps in and completely undermines everything you just told your child. AHHHHH! Of course, this makes you want to scream! That person made your rules look like a suggestion and not something your child needs to follow. To make matters worse, you know it will happen again. What are you going to do about it?

    Hello, my name is Kristina Campos. I am the founder of the Impactful Parent. Every week I give you parenting videos that can help you in your parenting journey. If you have a particular topic or parenting question about your school-aged child that you would like me to address, please submit it at theimpactfulparent@gmail.com or by messaging me on social media. All submissions are kept anonymous. 

    Today, I will talk to you about what to do when a co-parent undermines your authority. I will explain what undermining looks like, what it does to your parenting relationship, and stick around to the end because I will also be giving you tips for dealing with these frustrating situations. Let’s get started!

    When other adults undermine a parent’s authority, it can be hugely detrimental to the parent-child relationship. It doesn’t matter who the undermining adult might be. It could be a co-parent, an ex, a grandparent, a coach, a teacher, or even YOU. Sometimes people can subconsciously undermine another adult because they feel resentful, jealous, or simply don’t like how the other co-parent does things.

    Let’s start with what undermining looks like to get on the same page about our topic. The following are ways that adults can undermine each other in their co-parenting.

    Summary of the interview: Strategies For A Better Relationship With Your Partner

    Three Things You Need for A Good Relationship

    Relationships are difficult. The push, the pull, and the compromise. Most relationships have turbulent times, and the ones that last ride the rollercoaster of emotions that teach us the meaning of “death due us part,” especially when there are many days we want to kill our partner.

    Today, Cheri Timko, a relationship coach, comes onto the Impactful Parent stage to teach parents 3 relationship habits that every couple needs to implement to have a good, long-lasting partnership.

    Cheri Timko Bio: Cheri Timko helps women deepen their connection with their current partners to have the relationship they long for. She has been happily married for 20 years. She is a veteran psychotherapist and homeschool mom of three teenage daughters.

    Interview summary: Cheri Timko speaks about the 3 relationship habits that strengthen partnerships.

    Having good relationship habits
    The ability to work through problems
    Ways to clean up messes

    Having Good Relationship Habits: According to Cheri, relationship habits are the tiny interactions and things you can do for your partner every day. Things like:

    Say good morning and make them a cup of coffee
    Words of affirmation
    Small acts of kindness

    A Way To Work Through Problems: Finding ways to come to an agreement. Learning how to solve conflict and make compromises. Cheri recommends couples develop at least 10 solutions to the problem to brainstorm and facilitate compromise.

    Ways To Make Repairs: This is a system to “make it up” to our partner when we were wrong. The most common form of repair is an apology. Cheri warns that an apology can be a good way to repair a situation, but only when the apology is authentic and constructed correctly. Cheri then discusses some of the essential qualities of a good apology. Cheri also talks about how to make

Am I Screwing up my Child

Food for thought. Positive and uplifting!

denverrach ,

Exactly what I’ve been looking for!!

I’m so glad I found this podcast! Like most Moms, I struggle at times trying to be the best parent I can be, but don’t have time to read lengthy books or attend seminars. Kristina’s short but wisdom-filled podcasts cut right to the chase as she provides simple and effective parenting tips on a variety of topics. Unlike others who can be patronizing and judgy, or just plain boring, she delivers sound parenting advice as a totally relatable Mom of four, with humor and empathy. Can’t wait for the next episode!
