    EARLY SOCIALIZATION OF YOUNG CHILDREN

    EARLY SOCIALIZATION OF YOUNG CHILDREN

    “You don’t need to seek out preschools and daycare for your children to become socialized. It can still be a great fit for your family but remember it’s not something you need to do.”
     
    This week on the 3D Parent Podcast, I will be talking about young children and their socialization needs. I want to address a few myths, one of the biggest being, that daycares and preschools are the way to develop your children socially. I will also dive into the importance of the adults your children are surrounded by, and the role this plays in the socialization development.
     
    We will go over topics such as:
    How peer interactions are not key to early socialization of young children. Weighing the pros and cons of a daycare or preschool environment for your child. The main ways your child is influenced to develop socialization skills.   
    My hope is that this episode brings you peace of mind if you are a parent who has been feeling pressure to put your child in a preschool or daycare environment simply to promote socialization. Remember, you are what your child needs in order for them to reach their full potential!

    HAVE YOURSELF A MERRY COVID CHRISTMAS

    “This is the year where you can be making, baking, watching things and reading things because you're not as scheduled and you have more time. Let's take advantage of the benefits that come from a less scheduled holiday season.”
    This week on the 3D Parent Podcast, I will be talking about alternative ways to have yourself a merry COVID Christmas this year. With the restrictions in place, this year's Christmas surely won't feel the same. That doesn't mean families can’t get creative and find new ways to still experience the magical holiday spirit!
    We will go over topics such as:
    New activities families can explore to create new holiday traditions Creative turnarounds to still enjoy traditional holiday activities while maintaining safety and keeping social distancing Possible ideas to get you started on your very own holiday bucket list With lockdowns and safety restrictions, the holidays don't seem so fun and exciting as before. Thankfully, there are many resources for us to explore so that we can keep our family safe and still celebrate holidays with joy and excitement.

    SOLUTIONS TO SIBLING FIGHTING WITH SUSAN NORTH

    SOLUTIONS TO SIBLING FIGHTING WITH SUSAN NORTH

    This week on the 3D Parent Podcast, we're bringing in a professional mediator expert/parent educator and coach, Susan North. Susan will be joining us to discuss possible solutions to sibling fighting. We will be talking about the golden nuggets from her book The Opposite of Combat: A Parent's Guide for Teaching Siblings How To Collaborate & Solve Their Own Conflicts.
    We will go over topics such as:
    Susan's journey and what inspired her to write a book on siblings conflict. How mediation meets 3D Parent Approach. Why meditation is preferred over arbitration as solution to sibling fighting. Collateral benefits of mediation. While siblings fighting is a common occurrence in a household, many parents are struggling more than ever with increasing conflicts due to the stay-at-home set-up that we have today. If you are having a hard time dealing with mediation around your home, maybe it's time for you to explore Susan's philosophies and guidelines so you'll be equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to help children of all ages navigate their own conflicts.

Empathetic and practical advice for parents

Parenting can be tough, and I tend to be tough on myself when I’m struggling to get it right. Beaven provides practical advice with a dose of empathy that reminds me I’m not the only one for whom getting the kids out to the car can feel like climbing a mountain.
