Parents! We CAN change the world, starting with the way we're parenting our future.
Up to this point in history, children have been seen as less than and parented in a way that uses power over a child. Most of us were parented in this way but there is a shift in thinking about the way we raise our kids. Parents don’t feel good about using shame, blame, criticism, punishments, and even rewards, to get their kids to listen. Parents are wanting a different way because they know from their own childhoods this type of parenting hurts and leaves us with scars we take with us through our adulthood.

Each one of my episodes is designed to help you navigate the difficult journey of parenting but in a way that is more peaceful and intentional. I’ll show you how to get your kids to listen and cooperate without yelling, punishments and rewards. I’ll show you how to understand your own feelings and those of your kids.

My intention is to bring you to a place where you feel connected with your kids and yourself (we often get lost when we become parents!). Tune in weekly for all the inside tips, tools and tricks I teach my private clients to help you build the family you always wanted, and to become the parent you always envisioned you would be. I promise to provide you with fun and entertaining content that will leave you seeing your kids and your reactions in a whole new light!

Please make sure to share the episodes that give you goosebumps, and leave you feeling inspired! I am always grateful for every person who subscribes, leaves a review and rates my podcast 5 stars.

    The Unlikely Art of Parental Pressure | POF133

    The Unlikely Art of Parental Pressure | POF133

    When we first dream of becoming parents, we naturally think ahead to what we want for our kids in terms of their education, interests, sports, languages, and even what musical instrument they will play.  And when we have that child, some of these become solidified in our minds and expectations.  

    It’s natural to want the best for our children and to provide them with lots of opportunities. There are times though, where we get caught up in their activities, performance and interests and we put too much pressure on them to perform to a certain standard and it can do more harm than good.  

    I’m happy to welcome the distinguished Psychologist, educator and author, Dr. Christopher Thurber who co-wrote the book, “The Unlikely Art of Parental Pressure”, to discuss pressure and praise and how we can avoid hurting our kids and encourage them instead. 


    In this episode, we talk about:

    Good and bad kinds of pressure
    How to praise for effort versus outcome
    How to front-load empathy
    The six Ss of praise - Soon, Spontaneous, Sincere, Specific, Striving, and Stand alone
    Unconditional Love

    For a copy of the author’s exclusive insights from their book, “The Unlikely Art of Parental Pressure”, you can download it from the Parent Toolbox.  www.parent-toolbox.com

    Are We Taking Our Kids’ Sports Too Seriously?

    Are We Taking Our Kids’ Sports Too Seriously?

    Playing sports is a right of passage for most kids as they grow up. It’s an exciting time for kids and parents as they learn a new sport, build new skills and create new friendships. I’ve loved watching my kids play their sports and meeting new people who have become some of our closest friends.

    I’ve also seen parents take their kids sports too seriously and completely forget that it’s supposed to be fun, first! We all want the best for our kids and we want to give them the opportunity to be as successful as possible BUT we need to be realistic about what our true intentions are.

    I’m so happy to be talking to Coach Steve Morris who is a dad of three and has seen it all. His mission is to help parents be realistic about their kids sports and their potential while cheering them on and supporting them.

    In our super fun conversation, we talk about:
    How parents can make sports more fun for their kids and themselves
    When parents run their own agenda in encouraging (or forcing) their kids to play sports, it can lead to them rejecting the sport altogether (and them!).
    Why you don’t want your kids playing the same sport 365 days a year
    The passion for sports needs to be driven by your child, not parents
    Toxic coaches
    What parents are inadvertently doing wrong and what they can do instead

    Coach Steve has a copy of his list, The Great Eight, which is the 8 qualities parents need to be aware of in order to make sport fun for everyone. It’s a MUST read for every single parent with a child in sports. Download it from the Parent Toolbox: www.parent-toolbox.com

    About Steve Morris
    Steve Morris took a circuitous path to discover his life’s mission. He studied history at Yale, produced television commercials around the world, and continues to write screenplays that adorn his shelf.

    It came down to his energetic four-year-old wanting to play soccer for Steve to become the living, breathing embodiment of falling into something you love. With a bag of balls, dim muscle memory from playing in high school, and a cache of how-to books, he brought his son, Evan, and a dozen of his friends out to the wilds of their local southern California park, where together they dipped a toe into the wonderful world of youth sports. It wasn’t long before he was coaching every sport Evan and his siblings, Dori and Griffie, wanted to play.

    Over time it became clear that the playing field was leaning more toward the competition of travel teams and club sports, leaving development and recreational fun behind. In an effort to right this imbalance, Coach Steve was born, and in 1997, Coast Sports was founded. What twenty-three years ago began as an excuse for father-son bonding became a thriving business with the dual goals of recalibrating the fun-competition quotient for the kids, and assuring their parents that this was a healthier and more sustainable model for everyone’s happiness and success.

    Coach Steve encourages parents to enjoy their kids’ brief ten-year window in youth sports, while keeping their hopes and expectations in check. Out of the millions of young kids who enter sports, roughly 17.7% of them will play high school sports; fewer than 7% of those will play in college, and the number who go on to be professionals are infinitesimal. The most dynamic statistic is how many create life-long friendships with their teammates.

    Overcoming Your Unhelpful Thoughts with Dr. Amy Johnson

    Overcoming Your Unhelpful Thoughts with Dr. Amy Johnson

    Our mind has a constant stream of thoughts. Sometimes it seems like the thoughts come from a group of jerks who only want to judge you, put you down and tell you you aren’t good enough. How often have you told yourself you aren't a good enough parent? Too ugly, fat or dumb?

    Where does this voice come from and why do we have this constant commentary? Dr. Amy Johnson is here to help us sort all of this out as she shares how our mind works. In fact, she says that NOTHING we think is actually true!

    We have the most interesting conversation where we talk about:
    Why our thoughts aren’t true
    How you aren’t insecure, you just think you are
    The real job of the brain
    What happens when we over identify with our thoughts
    How you can break free of your thoughts so you can live a life with more peace and joy!

    For an excerpt from Amy’s previous book, “Being Human” you can download it from the Parent Toolbox. www.parent-toolbox.com

    The Impact of Non-Neurotypical Diagnosis on Families - Part 1

    The Impact of Non-Neurotypical Diagnosis on Families - Part 1

    As a mom of a child with multiple diagnoses I can attest to the struggles we’ve had raising our son over the last 16 years.  I’ve dealt with a wide range of emotions including, shame, rage, disappointment, guilt and regret.  Every parent and family are different but we can all say that after a diagnosis we’ve felt scared.  Scared at what the future looks like for our family and most importantly, for our child. 
    I’m so honoured to be talking with Dr. Norrine Russel, who has been working with students and weary parents in Canada and the US to help them navigate the complexities of having an ADHD or Autism Diagnosis.  
     
    In part one of our discussion, we are talking about:
    What it means to be “neurotypical”
    How often one diagnosis comes with more others
    How to talk with others who don’t understand your child or your struggle as a parent
    How exhaustion is real and how parents are often called to be superhuman
    The 3 core ADHD symptoms and the 2 core impairments of Autism

Great show

This podcast really goes beyond the surface of parenting. The hosting perfectly combines optimism with the realities of being a parent. Cannot recommend enough!

phoenix-joli ,

Parenting isn’t rocket science, it’s more important than that!

This is one of those podcasts I wish I’d had when my kids were little. It would have saved me a lot of heartache to learn how to relax into it all with more confidence. I love every time Robbin says “remember, it’s not personal… they’re kids!” Keeping that top of mind as I parent my 7 teens!

GatorGurl1993 ,

Robbin is the mom I wish I was!

Robbin always seems to know the right thing to say and do all the time. She is the mom I wish I could be and am striving to be! She’s warm and empathetic and never judgmental!
