What Kids Need to Thrive – 144
Before I was a mom, I worked as a clinician at an adolescent day treatment facility near Boston. Time and time again, I witnessed teens enter the program with symptoms of major mental illness and leave thriving emotionally and socially. So, what was so special about the program? I’ve identified seven key elements that the program provided to help kids and their families go from hopeless to optimistic within just a few months. If they could help families with severe dysfunction, they can definitely help yours, too. Tune in to this episode to find out what they are! www.lessdramamoremama.com/144

People, Please! Don’t People Please. – 141
Calling all people pleasers! This is especially for you. The majority of my clients self-identify as people pleasers.

Tune into this episode to learn what people pleasing really is, why so many moms do it, why it’s a problem, and most importantly, how to break the habit. www.lessdramamoremama.com/141

In 2016, when Krista was 40, her life was completely flipped upside down when her husband died unexpectedly.

She now coaches and teaches other widows to love life again, too. Tune in to today's episode where Krista and I talk about grief and loss, not only as it relates to the death of a loved one, but to life and motherhood in general -- especially after the year we’ve just had. We also talk about how Krista thinks about grief, how she talks to her kids about loss, and the concept of Post-Traumatic Growth.

Failure Isn’t a Feeling; It’s Feedback – 139
Sometimes when I ask a client to tell me how she feels, she'll say, "I feel like a failure." But failure isn't a feeling. In fact, failure doesn't cause any feelings at all until you have a thought about it. If you've ever "felt" like a failure, be sure to join me for this episode, where I share what failure really is, why it's necessary, and how to think about it in a way that serves you in your motherhood. www.lessdramamoremama.com/139
Great advice! Always learning from her!
Pam gives really great advice for all parents and even children. I listen to her podcasts in my car while driving to and from work. I am so happy I am able to get constructive advice to incorporate into my own family dynamics to help our kids thrive as much as possible. This podcast is just great! Definitely worth your time listening to.
Great mom survival skills
I first met Pam in the summer of 2020 from a Facebook ad in the midst of Lockdown with kids during Covid-19. I couldn’t wait to hear how I could be more calm and collected as a mom with three kids at home during Covid doing virtual school. I signed up for her free summer camp and a paid 4 week moms camp after that and I loved the coaching. I wish I would have had the model when my kids were toddlers!
I now listen to her podcasts every week and never miss! They are quick little nuggets of Mom wisdom that I can implement with my kids easily. And with a teenager, a pre teen and 7 year old, they are always exactly what I need to hear!
If you are a Mom, sign up for this podcast! You won’t be sorry and can listen in the car!!
Short and to the point
I usually don’t listen to many podcasts but needed something for during my chores or short walks. Raising my four kids is the main thing in my life at the moment so I was happy to find this podcast. I loved the name of it to start with ))) and then I found that I can relate to so many of the episodes. I don’t think ALL resonated with me but the ones that did, did it thoroughly!
I like that they are short and to the point, I noticed that some podcasts will just go over and over the same idea/thought and o don’t like that as it Feels like reading an academic work ;)
So I do recommend this! And always recommend it to anyone who asks for recommendations.
