Welcome to Trauma-Informed Parenting where you can find adoption/foster care/Capital Letter Syndrome. support, - all in one place. I’m Kathleen Guire, your host, mother of seven, four through adoption, former National Parent of the Year, author, teacher, and speaker. But more important than any of those things, I’m a parent just like you. I know what it’s like to raise kiddos from hard places. I used to feel as if I was the only one struggling and because I felt that way, I isolated myself. I don’t want you to feel alone in your parenting journey, so grab a cup of coffee and join me for Trauma-Informed Parenting- a coffee break podcast.
Why Isn’t My Child Listening And What To Do About It Part 2
Going off on a tangent in this series - felt-safety, training, and investment parenting - all promote (better) listening.
Schedules are secure. It gives your kiddo a sense of comfort or felt safety.
I'm veering into a tangent on "practicing out the moment" or "training."
Training is showing your kiddo what to do beforehand so she knows how to do it.
This is investment parenting. It takes time. If you want your child to listen (better) you must invest in them.
Grab a cup of coffee and listen as Kathleen shares some training practices (which include eating M and Ms, games, and fun activities).
Why Isn’t My Child Listening And What Can I Do About It?
Why isn't my child listening and what can I do about it?
This is a common question and one asked by a respondent to a survey I sent out to my email list - Why isn't my child listening? She felt as if she is repeating herself over and over.
If we understand our children better, we can help them by changing the environment and what our expectations are when it comes to listening.
Does your child have an auditory processing disorder? ADD? ADHD? FASD? SPD? On the spectrum? If so your child may have difficulty processing information - i.e. difficulty listening.
Grab a cup of coffee and join Kathleen as she discusses practical tips and tools to help you help your kiddos.

Episode 194: Episode 194 -Interview with Natalie Vecchione
Natalie Vecchione is an FASD parent advocate, homeschooler, podcaster, but MOST importantly... a wife and mom!
Natalie and her husband, John, adopted both our son and daughter via domestic adoption. They began homeschooling 7 years ago, when they noticed how many accommodations their son needed (who was later diagnosed with an FASD). Their son finally received an FASD diagnosis when he was 15, when he was also hospitalized for Bipolar Disorder...and it was one of the darkest times of her life as a mom. Grab a cup of coffee and join Kathleen in a conversation with Natalie!
Episode 193: FIVE THINGS YOU CAN DO TO HELP ADOPTIVE/FOSTER FAMILIES PART 4
Sandra Flach, of the Orphans No More Podcast, joins me again this week for the Positive Adoption Podcast series on the book Five Things: A Tiny Handbook for Foster/Adoptive Families. We’re sharing the last episode in our series – Five Things You Can Do To Help Adoptive/Foster Families. If you are an adoptive/foster parent you may be struggling alone at home with a child's meltdowns, but when you are in public, the child is an angel. This week’s topic – don’t be fooled by a child’s superficially, engaging behavior.
For women who are raising a family, including those in the journey of adoption or fostering. Learn about issues involved in child rearing, etc.
This is a must listen
Such a great podcast!
