    My Kids Seem Ungrateful and Entitled

    My Kids Seem Ungrateful and Entitled

    Janet responds to a Facebook post from a parent who shares her personal dismay “at what children across the globe suffer and what they go without,” and she is distraught by her own children's apparent lack of gratitude and humility. While this mom admits her current mood may be the result of “post-Christmas blues,” she wants to instill these positive, empathetic traits in her own children. “How do you model this?” she asks. “I want to do better.”

    No Bad Kids: Questions About Tantrums, Mealtimes, and Cleaning Up

    No Bad Kids: Questions About Tantrums, Mealtimes, and Cleaning Up

    After reading Janet’s book “No Bad Kids: Toddler Discipline without Shame,” a parent has some practical follow-up questions about his daughter’s behaviors; specifically in regard to tantrums, mealtime boundaries, and cooperation in cleaning up her messes. This dad says there are certain “values/etiquette” he would like his daughter to learn, but he realizes these qualities must evolve organically and can’t be coerced. He describes his own upbringing as disciplinarian, and he doesn’t want to expose his kids “to the same feelings of shame and mistrust.”

    Teaching a Child to Control His Feelings

    Teaching a Child to Control His Feelings

    A parent writes that her toddler is very aware of his emotions and even has several strategies to cope with the negative ones. One of these strategies is going to his room by himself. While this mom is “happy that he is aware of his emotions and (usually) redirects them before causing harm or throwing a full-blown tantrum,” she struggles with how long to let him isolate. She worries she may be encouraging him to mope or empowering his sour attitude. “I wonder if we should be more assertive in having him try alternative strategies.” Janet offers her perspective and advice.

    Resolving a Toddler’s Aggressive Behavior (Hitting, Pushing, Hair Pulling)

    Resolving a Toddler’s Aggressive Behavior (Hitting, Pushing, Hair Pulling)

    Janet responds to the parent of a 2-year-old who for the past 3 months has been “going through a really bad stage of pulling hair.” This parent describes herself as a Montessori teacher with an intense passion for gentle, respectful parenting. She has tried several strategies to change her daughter’s behavior, but to no avail. “I’m exhausted and have become extremely depressed and isolated because of this. I feel parents are judging me and not wanting to spend time with us.” She’s hoping Janet can offer some guidance, hopefully a solution.

teacher/mama ,

Amazing parenting advice!

This podcast is a wonderful way to hear about positive parenting advice and troubleshooting. I am an early childhood educator and a parent of 3 children under 5. I am constantly working on becoming a better parent and often am asked to provide guidance to the parents I work with. I love the way Janet advocates light, respectful parenting, but is also kind to US as parents about the changes we are trying to make. It is fantastic combination specific advice and about ways to create a general climate of intentional, respectful relationship building with your children.

Wonderful podcast for loving parenting with boundaries

I love this podcast. It takes a loving approach but also firm with love at times. It’s helping me keep cool in the hard stuff of life and bring more joy to the otherwise stressful situations. I have a happy, shame free and well behaved child. Thank you
