    Episode 103: Children and travel

    In this episode of The Aware Parenting Podcast, Marion talks to Helena Mooney, an Aware Parenting instructor, about travelling with children. Both Marion and Helena have travelled frequently between Australia and the UK with babies and young children.

    We include information about: how to prepare children for travelling, what we can do on a plane or airport terminal to help things go more smoothly, how we can respond if our child cries on the plane, and how we can listen to feelings when staying with friends or family. We share information relevant to travelling in other ways, such as in the car or on a train, and what you can do if your baby always cries in the car. We also talk about the one thing that we found most helpful for ourselves so that we could play with our children more and listen to more feelings whilst travelling.

    Helena also has a podcast and also a recent episode on travel; her podcast is called Parenting with PLAY and you can find it here: https://podcasts.apple.com/au/podcast/parenting-with-play/id1470033587

    Helena has a course called Annoying to Amazing, which you can find here: https://parentingwithplay.com.au/amazing/

    She has a free playful discipline masterclass here: https://parentingwithplay.com.au/playful-discipline-masterclass/

    Helena and Marion also have the Aware Parenting Babies Course.

    Helena also offers 1-1 sessions.

    Episode 102: Illness and healing

    In this episode, we talked about how illness can arrive for children when they have more accumulated feelings. We shared about the different choices parents have about to respond to feelings when children are sick. We emphasised how hard sickness can be in nuclear families and how much extra support is essential during times of illness. We offered ideas for what parents can do after their children have been ill in regard to painful feelings. We talked about the power of attachment play if visits to health professionals are required. We also shared our experiences of learning we've experienced from times of illness.

    Episode 100: Birthdays

    This is our 100th episode!

    In it, we talked all about birthdays - both our own birthdays as adults, and our children’s birthdays. We shared about how birthdays are opportunities for birth-related feelings and other feelings for the past to bubble up, and the journey of listening lovingly to those feelings. We also talked about the joy of being deeply seen and celebrated on our birthday, whether we are an adult or a child.

    We also have exciting news! To celebrate our 100th episode, we are going to have The Aware Parenting Podcast Party and we are inviting you to join in with us!
