    #234: Working Through Parental Guilt

    We ALL experience parental guilt over one area or another where we feel like we might be falling short (aka being imperfect or human!) How do we allow ourselves to be OK with our life circumstances, allow our kids to struggle at times or not be 100% perfectly tuned in all the time and let go of the guilt? Erin answers a question for a mom dealing with mom guilt over her single parenthood status. Erin also shares some of her struggles with mom guilt over these same issues of not always being 100% available, over pushing her kids hard sometimes to do things they don't want to do, and over her own divorce.

    #232: When Kids Need Too Much Control & Lying

    #232: When Kids Need Too Much Control & Lying

    What do you do with a child who is constantly trying to control everything? Or even just anything that isn't meant for them to control? All toddlers and preschoolers want some level of control (and tweens/teens is another push) and often times it's more than is really warranted. It's not even uncommon for young children to try to control siblings and even parents, where they go, what they do, "Mom stop singing." Or telling friends and siblings what or how to play. How do you work with a child who seems to need way too much control? The second question is about working with kids on lying. How to teach honest telling and setting boundaries and expectations around honesty by age and without shaming.

Love love!

I absolutely love love this podcast (and the classes). Erin’s approach to parenting works is so aligned to mine so I know what she says, works! I have a 15 month old and have been able to deal with all “issues” so quickly and easily due to Erin’s advice. It’s made my life has a mom so much fun and stress free!

Disappointed

I have been enjoying your podcasts tremendously until the ads starting becoming excessive. In addition, I am so disappointed that you now advertise animal flesh for consumption. Both our vegetarian family and our dear non-veg family friends simply cannot, in today’s environmental and ethical climate, condone exposing our kids to the promotion of animal flesh consumption on mass media. Unfortunately the reality is that our kids often listen to your podcasts with us.

Beyond kids though, I find it so upsetting to listen to the adverts on animal flesh consumption, that I have not been able to finish one podcast since those ads started. This is such a pity because I really find your podcasts so helpful. I am a psychologist and early parenting facilitator and used to widely recommend your podcasts. I can no longer do so because of these ads. Furthermore, your gentle approach reaches many veg families and professionals, and I hope you reconsider the promotion of animal flesh consumption to financially fuel your wonderful content.
