    79: Inner "F It"

    79: Inner "F It"

    Hey, hey, you guys! Today, I dive into the concept of the inner 'f it,' where kids might show aggressive behavior due to being sick of the process. It's crucial to recognize when your child is struggling and to provide the right support without overwhelming them with excessive praise or criticism. Acknowledging small wins authentically helps foster self-esteem and confidence. I also emphasize the importance of parenting approaches that avoid burdening children with parental emotions, activating a child's inner pride instead of codependency. Tune in for practical advice on maintaining a balanced approach to potty training, ensuring you support your child through this developmental milestone with patience and empathy.

    78: Common Summer Potty Training Pitfalls

    78: Common Summer Potty Training Pitfalls

    I'm diving into the nitty-gritty of summer potty training. Summer is a fantastic time to potty train—less clothing, more time at home—but it comes with its own set of challenges. We'll talk about how travel plans and those beloved pool and beach days can throw a wrench in your potty training progress.



    I'll be sharing why swim diapers can be a major setback and why it's crucial to manage your little one's fluid intake to avoid those pesky electrolyte imbalances. We’ll also cover why fruits like watermelon and grapes might be causing more nighttime accidents than you realize.



    Plus, I can't stress enough the importance of dedicating enough time to really nail down those potty training skills. Forget the quick fixes and three-day promises—I'm here to help you do it right. Let's make this summer's potty training journey as smooth as possible!

    77: What is Poop Withholding, Really?

    77: What is Poop Withholding, Really?

    Hey, hey! In this episode, I’m diving into the hot topic of poop withholding, again. Poop withholding isn’t about your kid not being "ready"—it's a muscular reaction to anxiety. To help, I’ve launched a Poop Withholding Course with HD videos, workbooks, and a supportive community. Understanding this issue early is crucial, as it ranges from mild to severe anxiety-driven behaviors. Plus, night and nap diapers can complicate things, as kids might hold it in until they're in a diaper again.

    Also you guys, I just released the 10th Anniversary Revision of "Oh Crap! Potty Training," and we've added new content on night training and neurodivergence, reflecting the changing parenting landscape!

    Tune in for insights and strategies to tackle this challenge.

    74: On Purpose Accidents

    74: On Purpose Accidents

    Today, we're talking limit testing behavior in potty training. Kids often push boundaries by purposefully having accidents or making inappropriate statements to gauge parental reactions. I stress the significance of setting firm boundaries and remaining consistent in enforcing them, likening it to putting a fence around a yard for safety. It's essential to differentiate between behavior-driven accidents and physical issues like constipation, addressing underlying issues effectively. We explore the importance of establishing consistent parenting boundaries to ensure children's psychological safety and provide strategies for handling purposeful peeing incidents, including the use of toy timeouts. Join us as we navigate the challenges of disciplining and setting clear expectations to guide children's behavior and promote healthy development.(00:00:55) Boundary Pushing in Potty Training Dynamics(00:03:12) Emphasizing Consistent Boundaries for Effective Parenting(00:06:37) Toy Timeout for Purposeful Peeing Incidents(00:09:20) Setting Clear Expectations for Effective Discipline

Jamie is like that big sister who just always keeps it real.

My friend recommended her podcast “Oh crap, parenting” from there, I started listening to “Oh crap potty training “ then bought her book. Let me tell you, as a first time mom to a 2 year old. I had zero idea how to potty train. It’s been the least stressed I’ve felt in 2 years because of how prepared I was going into potty training from listening to Jamie. As moms, reassurance is everything for us and Jamie’s that big sister to me who I can always rely on for her realistic truths and straightforward answers. Thank you Jamie for helping us moms out who are just winging it looking for some guidance. Rock on!
