    Ep. 109 Building Self-Esteem

    How do we support healthy self-esteem in our children? The first place to start is looking inside to your self-esteem. 


    When I took a deep dive inside I realized how insecure I felt in my parenting. I looked “good” on the outside because I was sitting in the seat of “power” and yet this was to cover my insecurity inside.

    Ep. 108 Trusting Your Own Wisdom

    Ep. 108 Trusting Your Own Wisdom

    I found when looking outside for advice or methods to control my daughter’s behavior I wasn’t trusting my internal wisdom. Comparing myself with other parents was brutal. It seemed at the time that other parents didn’t struggle as much as I did.

    Tune into this episode to hear more about how I turned towards my own knowing, and how Purejoy supports you to do the same.

    Ep. 104 Your Child Is Not Out To Get You

    Ep. 104 Your Child Is Not Out To Get You

    The reason we find it challenging not to take things personally is that when our children lash out it feels personal because of the story we’ve told ourselves - about ourselves. 

    We tell ourselves stories about what it means when our children say things about us, or when they won’t listen to us.

    Ep. 105 I WANT MORE!

    We came into the world helpless and totally dependent on our caregivers to attend to our young needs. Each time we reached out our precious young arms we were met with either a tender loving smile and our vulnerable needs were met or our caregiver turned away claiming we were too demanding and taught us to take care of ourselves before we were ready.

    Tune into this week's episode to hear more about how to be with needs and desires.

Total Game Changer!

Finding Purejoy Parenting set me and my family on a new path in life. I was a tired mom of 6 and had tried so many different ways ‘fix’ us that just added to the heap of guilt and shame I felt about my emotional melt downs- it wasn’t pretty. The gift of this work was finding myself in the midst of my parenting. Rather than seeing myself as the problem I began to see layers of trying to please others that were in the way of me open heartedly connecting with my children- that’s all we wanted. So grateful for this new format- that I can get short and poignant ongoing support to be present in the moment with my family! Thank you Purejoy Parenting!

Eye Opening & Life Changing

Leslie has changed my parenting behavior and I am so very grateful. Once you understand & begin practicing her processes things become so clear. One of my biggest learnings is that our little ones are not here to hurt us & frustrate us. They are learning to deal with the world and situations in the best way they know how. I have learned to be more calm & "pause" before reacting. Love the podcast! Thank you Leslie!

Reassuring

Hearing this podcast is reassuring that we may not know what to do or what is going on and not have the answer.we must be true to ourselves and learn to relate with love and not passing in the pain we have.
