Feeling overwhelmed as a mom? Tired of doing everything for your kids and wish… just wish… someone would step in to help you out?

Welcome to the No Guilt Mom parenting podcast hosted by author, teacher & parenting coach JoAnn Crohn, M.Ed and co-host parenting coach & educator, Brie Tucker.

Every Tuesday, we give you practical advice for moms and positive parenting tips - all without the shame and guilt. We make it fun.

We’re from a generation where our moms were supposed to be able to do it all. They went to work and yet were still expected to take care of the house and kids.

Our moms put everything extra they had into us kids and we realize there is a better way.

The way to give your kids your best is to give yourself the very best - without the mom guilt. How to master positive parenting without doing absolutely everything.

That means focusing on what you like to do. If you don’t like playing LEGO’s on the floor with your kids, you don’t have, too.

In my parents’ generation, moms gave up everything for their kids and I don’t want to do that.

Kids who learn how to be self-sufficient are happier kids and have happier moms.

    Changing the Game in Education with Jerry Kolber

    Changing the Game in Education with Jerry Kolber

    A survey done in 2021 shows that more than half of all students report they’re struggling to complete schoolwork and almost half find it hard to focus in class. Why is that? It’s very possible that the standards for teaching in the U.S. are a bit behind the times. Kids have different educational needs, and yet, for the most part, our educational system hasn’t changed much over the past 200 years! One thing is for sure- one size doesn’t fit all for education!
     
    In this episode, we are talking with Jerry Kolber, co-creator and narrator of the hit children's podcast WHO SMARTED?, Emmy-nominated co-creator and showrunner of Nat Geo's biggest hit series BRAIN GAMES, and Netflix's BRAINCHILD with Pharrell Williams.

    We talk about how kids can’t all be taught with the same strategies (read this chapter and then retain it for your next test). Kids have different needs, both emotional and educational and that’s why we need to change the game in education.

    How to Get What You Really Want

    How to Get What You Really Want

    Do you shy away from asking for things that you want because you’re afraid that it will be viewed as selfish? Many of us feel guilty and don’t ask for things that we really want (such as time away from the kids or even spending money on something that is just for us) because we are afraid that we are being so selfish.
     
    In this episode we will be discussing what causes that stress and guilt when we want something that can be defined as “selfish”, ask if being selfish is actually a bad thing, and walk you through how to go after and really ask for what you want.

    What Every Parent Needs to Know About Self-Regulation with Dr. Mona Delahooke

    What Every Parent Needs to Know About Self-Regulation with Dr. Mona Delahooke

    When our kids are feeling upset, many of us have been told that we need to teach our kids how to self-regulate on their own. But if we take a long hard look into neurodevelopment and how that affects our body and behaviors, and our kids' bodies and behaviors, you can see that kids can’t always regulate themselves. But how do we help them learn to self-regulate then? 
    In this episode, we speak with Dr. Mona Delahook, a Child Psychologist and author of Beyond Behaviors as well as her newest book, Brain-Body Parenting: How to Stop Managing Behavior and Start Raising Joyful, Resilient Kids. She’s a mom to 3 grown kids ranging from 26-34, and is trying to shift the lens and change the paradigm of how our world views challenging behaviors!
    We talk about how others can experience certain situations in a different way than others, how we can help our kids by using co-regulation, and what can we do as parents to nurture and build our kids’ ability to self-regulate.

    5 Steps to Being a More Patient Parent

    5 Steps to Being a More Patient Parent

    Has this happened to you? You walk into the living room and see your kid’s shoes thrown on the couch. You calmly ask your kid to take their shoes off the couch and put them away. You come back later, and there is your kid, and there are the shoes. Still on the couch. So you ask again, and your kid tells you that they will do it in a minute. Then you come into the room again, and nothing has happened. Neither the shoes nor your kid has moved. You absolutely lose it! You yell at your kid, they yell back at you or start crying, and then you end up putting the shoes away yourself. 
     
    If this sounds familiar to you, then you will love this episode. It was made just for you! We will share practical ways you can keep your cool as well as strategies you can use in the moment and after it, using our simple 5 step process: P.E.A.C.E.
