    Episode 301: Raise Children Who Are Resilient, Not Entitled

    Episode 301: Raise Children Who Are Resilient, Not Entitled

    Because our children struggle with challenging situations and feelings, we want to give them what they need to be resilient. But if we’re being honest, sometimes it's easier in the moment to give them what they WANT instead of what they NEED to be able to handle the obstacles they will inevitably face in life. 
    In this episode, you’ll learn:
    How to know whether we’re meeting our kids’ wants or needs -- and when we need to make a change!
    What our children actually need from us to become more resilient 
    The easiest way to meet our kids’ emotional needs (with examples!) for stronger self-esteem and healthier relationships

    Episode 299: Stop Trying to Get Your Children to Change Their Behavior or Moods

    Episode 299: Stop Trying to Get Your Children to Change Their Behavior or Moods

    When our children are having big emotions or behaviors, it’s natural to want those big feelings and behaviors to stop so that there is more fighting, no more disrespectful attitudes, no more drama. Unfortunately, there’s one problem: We can’t control how our kids feel or how they behave. And when we try, we just make the situation worse (and we feel worse).
    Fortunately, there is an alternative that leads to a better outcome – AND doesn’t require us to give in to them. 
    In this episode, you’ll learn:
    Why our need to control others leaves us exhausted
    How to address big feelings without trying to change other people
    A simple shift that will reduce resentment and lead to more peace and influence with our children

    Episode 298: How to be a Powerful Positive Influence When Your Child Is Upset or Not Listening

    Episode 298: How to be a Powerful Positive Influence When Your Child Is Upset or Not Listening

    Why do some kids listen more to one parent than another? Why do some kids seem to calm down more quickly around one parent than another? Often the difference is that one parent is a powerful positive influence, while the other isn’t. The good news is that any parent can learn to be a powerful positive influence.
    In this episode, you’ll learn:
    What we need to give our kids if we want to be more influential 
    How becoming a Powerful Positive Influence can motivate better behavior and healthier self-esteem -- without yelling, punishing, or shaming
    Two necessary qualities that will help you become a Powerful Positive Influence with your children

    Episode 297: Why Our Kids With Big Emotions Need Us to Have Firm Boundaries

    Episode 297: Why Our Kids With Big Emotions Need Us to Have Firm Boundaries

    Many people confuse “respectful parenting” with permissive parenting, thinking that respectful parents give into the whims of their children to make them feel good.
    But caving to our kids’ feelings and reactions is not respectful…to them or to us. Believe it or not, firm boundaries are a hallmark of respect-based parenting. And firm boundaries are what our children with big emotions really need.
    In this episode, you’ll learn:
    What firm parenting boundaries look like
    Reasons why setting limits can be uncomfortable for us (and how to deal with the discomfort)
    How to respond to our children’s big emotions respectfully

The podcast I’ve needed

Rachel’s practical and clear approach has me finally feeling empowered in parenting vs feeling like I have no clue what I’m doing! I walk away after each episode feeling like I’m ready for whatever kid “hiccup” comes at me next.

I always look forward to Thursday’s

Rachel was given me such great advice as to how to deal with my boys with big emotions. I can't thank her enough.

Jeff Wickersham ,

Great episode on why some kids always want to be first.

Loved this episode and the deep insight into why some kids act this way. Thanks for what you do Rachel. Keep it up!
