    Feeling Unloved, Rejected, Worried About Your Relationship with Your Child? Try This...

After reading one of Janet's articles, this mom began to see her son's behavior in a whole new light and improve her situation almost immediately.

    My Child Refuses Independent Play

    With our most loving intentions as parents, we might find ourselves stuck in a full-time role we never wanted—as our child's playmate and entertainer. In this episode, a mom asks Janet for advice regarding her "bright, busy, extroverted four-year-old girl who loves having my complete attention.” Unfortunately, this parent is feeling she really needs some time to herself, but when she tries to take a break, her daughter is unwilling to let her go and seems anxious and insecure, as if this is a personal rejection.

    The Magic That Makes Kids Want to Cooperate

    The Magic That Makes Kids Want to Cooperate

    As parents, we all experience moments when our kids just won’t go with the program – brushing their teeth, dressing for school, cleaning up their toys, going to bed (and staying there). We ask nicely, and they ignore us. Then we ask not so nicely, and they dig their heals in. Before long we’re frustration turns to exasperation, and we either get angry or throw up our hands in surrender. At a certain age, our kids are developmentally programmed to resist us no matter how much kindness and respect we show them. So, what’s a parent to do? Sometimes we wish we could just wave a magic wand. Well, the wands are on back-order, but Janet shares some magical recommendations that will make these interaction so much easier to navigate, win or lose.

Five stars

Love RIE and love Janet Lansbury. Thank you for everything you do! Please keep episodes coming. I think I’ve listened to every one twice! Whenever I doubt myself as a parent (which is quite often) I come back to listen and find my way toward confidence again. Thank you Janet for being such an incredible mouthpiece for these practices!

Gotta get passed the condescending vibes

While I love the overall philosophy here, the delivery is rough. She reads through the emails from parents as if holding back laughter about how dumb they are that they don’t know what’s so obvious to her (the expert). It comes across very condescending and I would be mortified to have a sincere and earnest question read aloud by her! That said, absorbing her overall philosophy has not only made me a WAY more relaxed parent, but it has enriched my relationship with my child. Episodes are short and easy to digest and simple applicable solutions. If you have a specific parenting question there’s bound to be any episode about it and she almost always specifies the age of the child each episode which is really helpful.
