How To Set Firm Limits with Kindness
01:07:25

Setting limits is an essential and important part of parenting. How can you set effective and firm limits without yelling, threats, bribes and harshness?

How can you hold that limit without giving in and learn to say “No” without feeling bad?

Your child may not be happy and that’s OK. You can hold space for their big feelings and support them emotionally. In this on air coaching episode I help Zara, a single mom of a 6 year old boy with those questions.

Connect To Your Authentic Self Through Intuition with Julie Cusmariu
56:20

What is intuition? Can you grow it? Who has it? Are you an empath?

Are highly sensitive people more intuitive? How about children? Men vs women? 

Do you use your intuition while making important decisions? 

Julie Cusmariu, host of the Julie in Conversation Podcast helps us see the connection between authenticity and intuition. 

I share a cringe worthy confession...And towards the end Julie does an impromptu intuitive reading for me. You don’t want to miss.

Why We Need To Connect More with Kristy Lauricella
51:50

Our need to connect is as fundamental as our need for food and water. We  have never been so connected technologically in the history of humankind, yet  many of us feel lonely, isolated and disconnected. We don’t just hang out anymore, socialize and play. We are all too busy. In discussing the power of connections and meaningful gatherings we touch upon some topics: 

 

  • Can you have friendships with an opposite sex outside of your marriage? 
  • Why do women need other women?  The vital role of friendships and why we need to hang out more socially? And is there a secret ingredient for successful gatherings? 
  • Will connecting with others bring more connection with ourselves? 
  • Why do marriages fail?

On Acceptance and Perfectionism
01:10:23

Acceptance is one of the basic emotional needs. How do you show acceptance to your child?  Why is parental acceptance such a significant influence on the child? 

Are you a perfectionist? 

Shenaaz Moos shares her own story as well as talks about:

  • The complex relationship between a Mother and Daughter
  • Love languages and how they help to connect and ground a relationship
  • The power of genuine listening and interest
  • It’s difficult for true connection to thrive when you don’t feel good enough
  • The power of bringing your awareness forward and healing your own past to parent your best
  • Unspoken language, even just a look, can convey a lack of acceptance

What’s Your Attachment Style? with Jenny Rosier
01:04:34

Attachment is the notion that interactions with primary caregivers in early childhood create internal working models in our brains that later impact how we view ourselves, view others, and view relationships in adulthood. Attachment causes us to communicate and react to the communication of others in certain ways. Understanding attachment can help individuals better understand the people in their lives and better cultivate the relationships they have with these people.

 

• Background of attachment theory

• Science behind attachment

• Importance of attachment

• How to cultivate attachment as a parent based on your child’s age

• How attachment impacts your behaviors and communication in relationships throughout life

• How attachment develops and changes throughout the lifespan

 

What’s Your Attachment Style?

Take the Attachment quiz to find out your style.

Letting Go of Negative Thoughts with Hunter Clarke-Fields
41:43

Today’s episode features host of Mindful Mama Podcast, Hunter Clarke-Fields. She recently came back from a silent meditation retreat!

Hunter shares her intense retreat experience of no speaking, reading or WRITING for SEVEN DAYS 😯 Sadness, loneliness, and pain flowed throughout the process. Thankfully peace finally came, and extreme awareness of surroundings. Enhancing the ability to give love and kindness to others. Deepening the emotion of empathy on a global level outside of self. 

We also talk about how you can learn to let go of negative thoughts.

Today’s episode is an on air coaching call. I help Bethan, a mom of 3 kids from England, ages 6, 3 and 9 months to get some tips on helping her eldest son with physicality. It sounds like this little boy has a difficulty controlling his body, is physical, hits and kicks when he gets angry, squeezes the baby’s head hardly, doesn’t recognize boundaries, doesn't know how to stop, even when his brother tells him that he no longer enjoys the rough play. He also exhibits some sensory issues.

 

If you’d like to be featured on an on air coaching episode, I’d be thrilled to do a coaching session with you. It’s free. Go to www.autuhenticparenting.com/coaching short application and I’ll be in touch.

Today’s episode is an on air coaching call in which I help Eveline, a mom of 2 kids, an almost 13 year old daughter and a 10 year old son to find new ways of teaching her kids:

  • how to be more responsible,
  • to curb back talk,
  • teach respect while staying away from coercion and parental control

"When we control our children, we lose our influence."

She wants to be able to communicate more consciously and elicit willing cooperation. As well as, set boundaries without dishing out empty threats and punishments.

We also discuss the importance of making agreements with our kids, specifically screen time contracts, involving them in the process as much as possible, working with our kids, being on their side as oppose to being against them. And what’s the deal with consequences?

Understanding and Helping Your Anxious Child with Kevin Ashworth
01:28:41

All kids get stressed sometimes. Most kids will complain, maybe cry a little, and then move on. But for the estimated one in five kids in the United States who suffer from anxiety disorders (including separation anxiety, social anxiety, and obsessive-compulsive disorder), it's a major challenge to manage their worries.

In severe cases, kids with anxiety may stop eating, sleeping, or going to school.

For some kids, minor worries turn into full-fledged fears. But with the right approach, you can help your child feel reassured.

  • How do you help a child with anxiety?
  • What are signs of anxiety in a child
  • How do you calm an anxiety attack in a child?

In Search of The True Self with Kerri Hummingbird
01:15:42

ATTENTION! 

Sign up for my upcoming FREE webinar. Sep. 6, at 12:00pm EST. 

5 Essential Shifts You Can Make To Feel Less Overwhelmed, Energized and Positive

www.authenticparenting.com/webinar 

 

Kerri Hummingbird went through a lot. From an early age well into her adult years she battled with self loathing, self-harming behaviors, dating bad boys, being and acting bad, divorce, affairs, drinking, traditional therapy...But it didn't help. She took blame for everything. She felt as she was broken and needed fixing. She was disconnected from her authentic self. 

The truth of who we are is so essential that its absence takes a heavy toll, typically causing us to lose our sense of self, personal goals, and close relationships. In order to become wholeheartedly ourselves, we must try, through an often lengthy process, to discover our own personal truth — a truth that may create discomfort before giving us a new sense of freedom.

How To Listen To Children's Big Feelings
55:40

In the May edition of the Monthly Special Episode I am joined with a new colleague Marilupe de la Calle who I had a pleasure meeting in person recently.

We have 3 segments:

  • Examples from Our Homes
  • What’s Up with You? Answering listener parenting questions
  • Favorite Finds

Highlights

  • the fear of abandonment in children and how real it can be
  • what our children actually need from us when they are experiencing big emotions
  • why it really doesn’t matter what your child is crying about
  • what you need to know about pretext cry
  • how to repair after a rupture
  • how can you “craft” your compassionate response that matches the intensity of your child’s feelings (this is HUGRE!)
  • is potty language normal?
  • playful and creative ways to deal with “bad” words (it’s not what you expect)

3 Tips To Balance Business and Family with Joe Pardo
01:02:38

Super Joe Pardo talks openly about the realities of balancing a growing business with a growing family (toddler and a newborn). Try to hold a toddler in your arms while keeping an eye on a sleeping newborn while conducing a video interview.

As much as Joe loves working from home and being part of his famille's life, some things had to change in order to maximize productivity and focus. He went from having an open door policy office, aka their dining room, which was turned into his office to a more defined space in their house -his wife’s scrapbooking room. Even though he feels a lot better and gets a lot of work done, he misses being in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the family happenings.

Domestic Violence and Abuse with Mickie Zada
01:13:50

Mickie Zada  chose to stay in a damaging relationship for 34 years because she thought it was her Calling.  She believed it was her responsibility to keep her husband between the lines. While living in abuse, for decades she didn’t recognize herself as an abused spouse. She was not threatened with weapons, was not hospitalized, never called law enforcement and did not file a restraining order against her husband.

She was the strong one, the grounded one, the dedicated wife.
She was in love.

When she left, she wondered (like nearly every abuse survivor) whether she was really abused. So many years were invested in protecting her abuser that she felt guilty defending herself by leaving.

Are you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence?

Parenting Peacefully When Triggered (Monthly Special Episode)
48:02

This is our monthly special episode where I co-host the show with another colleague. 

We have 3 segments

  • Examples from Our Homes
  • What’s Up with You? Answering listener parenting questions
  • Favorite Finds

In the first segment, I tell a story about a delayed Christmas gift I had ordered for my daughter. How she reacted triggered past hurts in me and I was stuck. It is hard to parent peacefully and respond respectfully when our wounds get triggered. Parenting is an emotional job. This experience has not only enabled me to face my own unresolved issues but also it served as a catalyst for me to open up and share a painful story from my past. We often feel like as parents we need to hide our stories, our past. When we share parts of us with our children we invite them into our lives and it gives them a different perspective. After I shared my story, my daughter was touched and the connection between us just got deeper. 

Have you ever shared parts of you with your child? How did it go? How did you child respond? What did you feel? 

Laura shares a story related to their recent trip to Disney.

Key takeaways from her story are:

  • let's allow children to go through their own experiences 
  • connect to your child's inner experience and do not invalidate their fears 
  • appreciate who your child is and don't try to change her

Growing Up with an Autistic Sister
48:39

It was the 1950’s, The Netherlands and people didn’t know much about Autism.

Born 18 months earlier than her, Carl's sister was severely autistic. She never spoke a word. For the first 3 years of her life she cried a lot. It was very difficult for her parents in many ways. Sometimes they couldn’t even to find love for her.

Carla’s parents wanted her to be “normal’ and that meant not showing emotions, not getting angry, meeting their high expectations, being the best and not wanting much. They also criticised her a lot.

From an early age Carla was told that her sister was “unhappy child”.

 

Highlights:

-a beautiful memory that made me tear up

-how our past shapes who we become

-why love is not enough to be a good parent

-how parental trauma can block the flow of love for their children

-she was not allowed to be angry or complain

-how she felt guilty for being “normal”

-why she chose NVC

Screen Addiction: How to Stay Sane in a Digital Age -Nancy Colier
01:04:31

Nancy Colier is a psychotherapist in private practice, an ordained interfaith minister, mindfulness teacher, relationship coach, author and blogger. 

Technology has become an integral part of our life. We do everything with or on our smartphones (well, almost everything). Just think about how you use your phone daily? We are starting to realize that some boundaries need to be placed, some parameters established in order to remain sane in this crazy accelerated digital age.

Why addiction is not a strong word for to describe our experiences with our digital devices. How can we recognize addictive behavior and how we can break out of compulsive cycles around technology.

Authentic Parenting | Year in Review
50:38

This is the final episode of the 2017.

I don't know about you but I feel like the time is really flying by. It seems like it was just yesterday when I was recording the final episode of the 2016, which is by the way the least downloaded episode of the podcast:) In preparation for this episode I went back and listened to it. It’s a really good one. In it I compiled all of my guests wisdom, their answers to “If you had to go back in time, knowing what you know about motherhood/fatherhood, what would you say to yourself as a new mom/dad?”question.

I'm sitting today in December and recording this message I feel like I am always behind 1 or 2 months behind of the calendar year.

Okay, looking back

 

What did the 2017 bring for me and how it was for the podcast?

 

Growth

I had many amazing guests. The podcast has grown. I have grown. The number of listeners have grown. And growth is a good thing.

I have changed the cover art for the podcast and I can't be happier. In fact, I have a mug with the logo right now on my table with my tea. Makes me happy everytime I look at it.

I have started working with my sound engineer, the editor who puts this show together and provides an amazing listening experience for you. Great sound is everything.

This year, I have connected with my listeners got to know you better.

We reached a big milestone in the podcasting world-100 episodes.

 

I have grown in many ways too. This podcast enriches my life in a very impactful way. So thank you for being part of this wonderful community.

What I have learned:

 

  • Vulnerability connects people.
  • Every human being deep inside wants to be feel loved, connected and when they open up and share vulnerability beautiful things happen.
  • What I have learned about myself. I have learned that I have a genuine interest in people and when you show genuine interest in a person they show up, they share more openly, vulnerably and authentically. I learned that I ask good questions. I listen and I have a genuine interest in any human being.
  • I learned to let go of perfection and accept what is.

 

People ask me if I have a favorite episode. That’s a tough one because they are all special and meaningful. But if i had to choose it would be the 100th episode.

After every episode, I always feel like,”That was the best one”.

What are your favorite episodes? Let’s take a look at the stats.

Top 15 most downloaded Episodes

So, do you want to know the top 15 most downloaded episodes are?

Please go back and listen to those and don’t forget to pay attention to the episodes that didn’t make the top 15 list.

I will share a highlight or two about each episode Plus, if you are a regular listener then you probably already listened to them, if you are a new listener check them out, I guess there is a reason they are ranking high in downloads:)

  1. The Father’s day show. What I’ve Learned from Being a Dad: 10 Honest Stories, Beautiful Reflections and Powerful Insights
  2. How To Control Your Anger with Kids with Avital,aka The Parenting Junkie
  3. How To Be a More Conscious Parent by Changing The Way You Speak with Lori Petro
  4. How To Stop Yelling with Carla Naumburg, PhD
  5. Childhood Trauma: Reclaiming Your Authentic Self with Guy Macpherson, PhD
  6. The Benefits of Negative Emotions with Hunter Clarke-Fields
  7. Why Kids Misbehave (MSE)
  8. Are You Stuck in The Past? with Cynthia E. Mazzaferro
  9. What I’ve Learned About My and Other Families by Living in a Trailer for 3 Months with Aaron Schiller
  10. The Hardship of Uprooting and Establishing a Life in a New Place with Bridgett Miller
  11. Healing From Trauma Christina Louise
  12. Why You Might Be Feeling, Negative, Tired and Overwhelmed with Corrine Seeley, PhD
  13. Getting unStuck: 5 Simple steps to emotional well-being with Shira Taylor-Gura
  14. From Punishments to Gentle Parenting: Raising 6 Kids in South Africa with Lelia Schott
  15. How To Find and Maintain Happiness No Matter What with Dr. Robert Puff

 

What episodes have impacted me personally? I do usually take things away from every episode but there are two shows that truly made a huge difference in my life.

I would also say that please don’t judge the episode by its title. Sometimes, most often it’s hard to summarize the entire content of the interview in a few word title that is catchy, and SEO friendly:)

There is so much goodness in each episode. I usually pick one aspect of the conversation and base my title on that. So this is why browsing the collections is so helpful.

 

Join the community. Share your takeaways, ask questions, connect with other listeners, offer feedback, suggest a guest…Besides, I have created that group for one main reason. To provide support to moms and dads like you. I strongly believe that social and emotional support is vital for parents. I am a parent too! And I also believe no one should be denied access to quality information, and support.

I have strong values and I do not like posting for the sake of posting and inauthentically trying to”engage” my audience. I offer specific things that I think are helpful and provide most value.

Get in touch. I absolutely love hearing from you. It enriches my life. Don’t feel like I am some kind of celebrity, just because I am behind the mic, it doesn’t mean I am a special individual. I’m regular person just like you and if you want to talk to me, just do it! Email, call, FB messenger.

Parenting questions. Send me your questions. If you have parenting questions chances are other parents deal with the same issues too. I would do my best to answer.

Write a review for the show. Seriously. It really does make a difference. Why it’s so important. Because when other potential listeners, They read the reviews and base on what they read, the click play or subscribe. I don’t know about you but I am a big review reader when it comes to making online decisions or purchases or subscribing to shows.

Share with 3 people. The best way to spread the word about the show is simply word of mouth. When was the last you told someone about this podcast? Show them how to subscribe on their phone. You'd be surprised how many people have never heard of podcasts and don’t know how to listen to one. I can’t imagine my life without podcasts.

Donate to support the show. A lot goes into producing and bringing this show to every single week. I’d be honest there are days that I feel really down. It may seem so smooth and seamless but it does take a lot of time, effort, planning and work!

Finding guests, screening them, doing pre-interviews often, going back and forth to set a recording date. I do this months in advance. I always think about the podcast. In fact I have planned the entire 2018. Because I care about the show and I always have you, my listener in mind. There are monetary costs too. To name a couple, I pay monthly fee to a hosting company to host my audio files, I pay my amazing editor to provide high quality audio sound and experience for you….

So...

Has the show been of value to you? Do you find the show helpful? Have you gained from the show? Do you want the show to remain strong and bring more excellent content to you?

Why You Should Slow Down
48:33

Are you caught up in the frenzy of day to day modern life?

Are you busy, rushed, hurried and lacking time?

How much time do you spend with your kids?

How much time do your children spend away from you?

As the year 2017 is coming to an end, I invite you to rethink your priorities. This is a good time to pause and set new intentions for the coming year.

How do you want to spend your days? Where does your attention go?

We move through scenes like ghosts, without fully experiencing the moments and the events. We are rushing from place to place, constantly doing something...

Children are overbooked and over scheduled.

But the truth of the matter is we need to rethink our priorities, we need to change our lifestyle, we need to slow down, we need to have ample time for for children to play freely. We need to provide time and space for our children to decompress, experience downtime and just be bored.  Bored is the gateway to creativity. Not only our children do not have time and space to be bored but they not have time for daydreaming, processing what has happened to them during the day.

Highlights:

-how to recognize our relational patterns and triggers

-we heal together

-fighting with your partner is not a bad thing

-the importance of repair after a fight

-how to help children in transitions times

-why we need to slow down

-why is play so vital

-what is slipping away from our lives

-the importance of doing nothing, having downtie

-boredom is not a bad thing

Also, my wonderful guest walks us through a simple sensory awareness exercise.

7 Things You Should Do Every Day with Your Kids inforgraphic

Download Now

It is the most shared and commented post I have ever created in social media. Why? Because it resonated with everyone. We all know what’s true and what we need to do deep inside but somehow we get caught up in the frenzy of day to day life and get disconnected form our values, from our children and from ourselves.

Holiday season is another hectic time but I am sending this message to you and inviting you to reconnect with what’s important. To open space in your life, let your children be free, and play, spend time outdoors even if it’s cold. stop the madness, stop the doing and just be...And if you are having a hard time...ponder upon this question:

What are you avoiding by keeping busy?

Curious how much time you spend on your phone? Where does your attention go? How many times per day you pick up your phone or check your email?

5 Strategies to Avoid Power Struggles with Children
59:05

Description

This is our monthly special episode where I co-host the show with another colleague. For now, I have a Mystery Seat for each month and I invite passionate coaches or parent educators to host the show with me. This should be fun.

For the monthly special episodes the show has a different format.

We have 4 segments.

Examples from Our Home

What’s Up with You? Answering listener parenting questions

Favorite Finds

----------------

In the first segment I tell a story that happens very commonly in many households. My daughter one morning before going to school stated that she didn’t have shoes. How did I answer? Did I avoid power struggles successfully, was I able to listen and validate? Listen to find out. The same day I received a call from a client who said that his son woke up and said, “I do not want to go to school…”

Sound familiar?

Laura has two daughters: a 2,5 year old one and a 5 year old one. She shares a sibling rivalry story.

 

For this month Laura Froyen, PhD takes the mystery seat.

 

About My Co-host


Questions we received this month:

  1. A mom is frustrated with food related issue. She has strong triggers around wasting food. How to handle a situation where a child (3.5) asks for a specific food, is given the food, and then doesn’t eat it?
  2. A single mom who works from home has a hard time managing her time and her toddler.

Communication is big part of any relationship. When we become parents our relationship with our parenting partner gains a whole new layer of complexity. Are you a good communicator? Is your relationship a challenging one? Do you keep having the same old argument? Are you in touch with your needs? Can you communicate them safely in your relationship to get them met?

Highlights:

-why marriage mediation

-don’t relay on your partner to read your mind

-6 steps to effectively communicating your needs

-interdependent needs

-why you don’t want to win a fight in a marriage

-how to avoid moralistic judgments

Healing From Trauma (Christina Louis)
50:08

My guest for this episode is

Christina Louise, The Peaceful Parenting Mentor and World's #1 Freedom Coach offers a unique understanding of what you and your child are going through right now, because she WAS a challenging child and troubled teen herself! Because her parents didn’t understand how to manage their emotions without going into fight or flight mode, she wound up experiencing years of abuse and neglect, which resulted in self-loathing, anxiety, trouble with the law, and other serious issues including severe depression.
But as an adult, she knew she had a CHOICE: She could blame her upbringing and continue suffering or she could take responsibility for ending the cycle of trauma and abuse.
She embarked on an enlightening road of personal and family transformation which taught me THE KEY to making life so much easier.
She condensed what took her two decades (and hundreds of thousands of dollars) to learn into Programs and Retreats that are designed to show you how to experience Peace, Purpose, and Prosperity in all areas of your life.

How to Find and Maintain Happiness No Matter What (Dr. Robert Puff)

How to find happiness and maintain it is a central question.

Do you know that we have  what’s called a set point for happiness? According to Dr. Puff we can change that. We can raise our set point and what he calls become superenjoyers. 

We can raise our set point of happiness. Happiness is a lot like our weight. You have to do things to maintain your healthy weight.

To begin to change our happiness begins with awareness. Dr. Puff shares four steps to creating happiness.

Here they are:

-you know nothing

-you start learning and gaining skills

-with time you re going to become competent

-you become a master

He compares learning to be happy to learning Japanese.

Regardless of your life experiences you can learn to be happy today. It’s a learned skill and you can cultivate it, just like learning a new language.

We also talk about parenting. He states that there are 3 ways we affect our children.

Highlights:

-why our kids are so impressionable and guidable

-do you filter what your child hears or sees in the media?

-why shouldn’t be so hang up on the word “hate” and why it’s ok for your child to use it

In this episode we answer 3 of your questions.

The first one is about a mom who thinks she is helicoptering her 1 year old.

The second question is from a mom who wants to know how to help her child process big feelings, turn her negativity into positivity. They just moved to a new town and it seems like the stress and the change are impacting her 6 year old.

The third question is about a mom who wants to gain some balance. Her husband works 14-16 hours a day and her kids are so used to her that when dad is home, they still prefer her.

Are We Over-Parenting in America?
36:07

I recently visited Armenia with my family for the first after 12 years. Even though I was born there and know pretty much what the culture is but to my surprise things had changed. This visit was special because I was visiting as a parent and parent educator and I was very intentional to observe how the Armenian people do the parenting business. Also, I met my friends there for the first time as parents with families.

For this episode I invited my dear friend Lusine to join me via Skype to discuss parenting differences and similarities between the Armenia and America. Lusine is a mother of an almost 10 years old boy. Lusine has noted that the issues are the same regardless of the geographical location. What surprised me about Lusine and most parents I talked to there, is that they have never even read a single parenting book. And this is why I pose a question: are we  over-parenting here in America?

Let’s dig in. :)

Some things we discuss:

-dreaded screen time and setting limits, the Armenian way vs The American (my way more specifically, don’t laugh at me too much)

-reasons why they are more relaxed around technology and media

-how does she get her kid to do things without yelling, nagging, punishing

-do kids have more freedom there?

-why kids are so easy going there and don’t give a hard time to their parents at least from my observations

-some secrets to setting limits

-how to teach kids to be respectful toward elderly

-why they have very few power struggles

-and so much more

She doesn’t follow any particular parenting style or philosophy. She says it comes to her naturally.

About my guest who also happens to be my dear friend:)

Lusine Taslakyan has twenty years of experience in water and environmental sector in Armenia and the Southern Caucasus.  She has a Masters Degree in Water Science, Policy and Management from the University of Oxford, UK, MSc in Environmental Science from the University of Idaho, USA and MSc in Biology and Ecology from the Armenian State Pedagogical University.  Ms. Taslakyan is specialized in natural resources management, policy development, river basin planning, trans-boundary cooperation, environmental impact assessment, climate change, stakeholder relations and gender mainstreaming issues. She has long term experience in promoting public awareness and participation in environmental decision making.

Overseas Travel: Honest Sharing from My 9 Year Old
21:54

My 9 year old daughter shares her honest impressions, observations about our recent overseas travel to Armenia. It was her first time. She was going to meet my dad, her grandpa are you ready-for the first time. It was a big, emotional trip for me as well since I was going back after long 13 years. Many mixed feelings. If you listened to my episode with Bridgett Miller The Hardship of Uprooting and Establishing a Home in a New Place  then you know what I mean. Curious what she saw and what she has to say? Here are some of the key points:

Some things she talks about

  • The long flight, jet lag, 14 hour layover
  • language barrier and how “nobody understood her” 
  • Food and more food

53:59

How to get kids to listen without yelling and nagging? We all want our children to cooperate easily. Many parents do struggle with challenge. That was the case for Carla who later ended up writing books on mindfulness. Why? Because it was helpful in combating the bad habit of yelling. 

Yelling doesn’t have to be part of your parenting repertoire.

Carla shares with us her own definition of mindfulness which I love.
-how she integrated mindfulness into her family
– how it has changed her life from being less reactive to yelling less…and much more
-we talk about mindful listening
-an exercise you can do with your kids when they go from zero to crying
-how to create a calming down corner for your child.
-how to handle meltdowns public places…
She is witty, funny, smart and a great storyteller..

[Archive] From Punishments To Gentle Parenting: Raising 6 Kids In South Africa
55:42

Spanking or corporal punishments break the bond between parent and child. They erode the trust. It is NNOT by inflciting pain we need to teach our children. There is a different way. You'd be surprised to learn that using physical punishments to "discipline" children is still legal in the world. In the United States 19 states still use corporal punishments in their schools and homes. 

In today’s episode I am talking to my lovely friend, gentle parenting advocate Lelia Wes Schott. She is from South African and mom of 6 children.

Lelia raised all her children with attachment parenting-a common practice in South Africa. But attachment parenting doesn’t mean gentle discipline.

Lelia also shares her story of transformation moving from corporal punishments to gentle parenting.
She also talks about the feelings that rise from transitioning from having one child to baby number two
-The ups and downs, the joy and challenges of raising a big family
-How she finds time for herself and for each of her children
-Finding support
-The reasons behind her decision to homeschool two of her kids
-What’s happening in schools
-and more

Curious how they spend a typical day in their household?

About My Guest

Lelia is a South African, grateful mother of six children; four sons and two daughters; aged 19, 17, 15, 12, 5 and 2. She is also an independent child development researcher, founder, creator and writer at the international advocacy and consulting group Synergy Gentle Parenting Resources, administrator at Gentle Parents Unite and contributor at Thought Leaders In Parenting. Lelia calls herself a messenger or friend, not an expert. Some say she is a conscious parenting coach.

A quote from the show

“Love multiplies, it doesn’t divide.”

How To Be A More Conscious Parent By Changing The Way You Speak
45:31

In this episode I’m talking to Lori Petro the founder of TEACH Through Love.

Are you a conscious communicator?

Do you often wonder what to say to your kids?

Lori has created Conscious Communication cards to help parents become better, more effective communicators.

These "communication flash cards" help us transform the way we speak to our kids by turning our punitive and reactive language into compassionate communication which builds skills, relieves stress, and strengthens our relationships.

 

The hardest thing to do when you're facing a toddler tantrum, dysregulated kid, or a defiant teen is to stay calm and respectful.

 

The cards not only help us curb negative behavior and influence our relationship for the better - they also provide a strong foundation of emotional intelligence which allows kids to flourish into thoughtful, caring, and responsible adults

 

The cards show you how to restore your influence, reclaim your peace, and create healthy, intimate relationships with your kids. Finally - you can make requests that get HEARD. 

 

There are 45 cards in each deck divided into three color-coded areas of challenge which help us target the root causes of conflict and address what's really going on behind the behavior.    

 

Here is the link to the Kickstarter page. http://kck.st/2uyOTFb

-Let them take responsibility for themselves and their problems

-Are you able to create and protect safe boundaries? Do you take responsibility for other people’s problems?

 

How does your past imprinting shows up in your day to day life and are you able to recognize your unhealthy patterns?

An empowering practice that will transform your life and relationships called STOP, LOOK AND LISTEN. Cynthia walks us through this step by step powerful tool.

How you can overcome your old patterns and break free from them so you can live with more ease and joy.

-stop and observe what you are feeling

-look at the situation, evaluate and reframe

if I created I can un-create because it’s all in my thoughts

Our past plays a huge role on how we parent today and that’s what this show is all about.

So you know that I work with parents.

I talk about parenting pretty much always.

-how can we raise kids who have a sense of gratitude, appreciation in the age of

materialism, consumerism, 1st world 3rd world problems and perspectives.

-how people parent in other countries, Israel, Armenia, United Kingdom. What shocked her the most when she first landed in the UnIted States.

What did she bring from her upbringing into her parenting. Traditions, customs that she still continues to carry on. Values she brought into her parenting willingly or unwillingly, knowingly or unknowingly, unconsciously, consciously.

Listen till the end as Avital shares a very powerful practical, step by step example from her life on how she she keeps her cool and responds mindfully.

Also...

-the power of growing up in an environment of predicatively and reliability.

-on family dinners and why they are important

-shabbat

Her family’s Holocaust story, how her parents grew up.

What traditions, customs did you grow up with? What did you bring from your parents parenting into your parenting in terms values, traditions and customs? What did you consciously omit or let go?

What I’ve Learned from Being a Dad: 10 Honest Stories, Beautiful Reflections & Powerful Insights
02:49:59

This is the Father’s Day edition of Authentic Moments!

 

I sat down with 10 amazing dads from around the world and asked them very deep questions about fatherhood.

Their honest, wise, insightful answers surprised me.

We talked about empathy, emotions, self discovery, self development, self care and so much more.

 

Were those fathers ready for fatherhood?  How has fatherhood change them? What are some powerful lessons they have learned along the way? What do they think about self care for dads and do they have regular self care practices or are they running on empty like moms?

How are they enjoying fatherhood today? What do they wish they had for father's day? First Father’s Day. What are their memories?

 

And some things they say just will melt your heart...

 

Also...

-Not knowing is ok. You don't have to be omnipotent

-you can unschool your kids and travel with your family all over Europe

-Why we shouldn’t be afraid of boredom and how important it is to have free time and space to reflect

-The importance of unconditional love

-Complete new definition of manhood

-Take off the mask, be authentic and real

-Why you should stay focused on your partnership

-Alternative lifestyle and dreams. Do you support your wife in her dreams? 3 month long road trip in a trailer, yes please!

-You can learn from your children

-Take your time and play

-Did we mention play?

-Why dads don’t need gifts for father’s day

 

While I listened to their stories, reflections, memories and thoughts, I noticed themes emerge. I wonder if you, the listener, noticed them too.

Let’s talk about that in the private group I host for conscious moms and dads on Facebook.

Let Go, Let Be & Let In: The Truths About The Journey of Conscious Parenting
53:21

One mother's journey of raising herself through her daughter's essence.
This powerful, authentic and enlightening conversation will move you.

In this episode:
-we don’t have control
-our children come to us to awaken us and “raise” us
-conscious parenting is not easy
-what Sandra brought into her parenting from her past
-what are lessons she wants her daughter to learn from her
-how doe she wants to be remembered by her daughter
-much more...

About Sandra:
After consciously leaving the corporate world in 2012 when her daughter turned one, Sandra Fazio began letting go of all she thought she needed “to do” and gave permission to the Universe to “let be” what was meant for her life.

Two years later, after enduring more challenges and anxiety in her new-found motherhood journey than she ever expected, Sandra was greatly inspired by Dr. Shefali Tsabary’s interview with Oprah on Super Soul Sunday on her book The Conscious Parent and knew this was the Universe’s message for Sandra to serve her life’s calling and purpose. Sandra found her daughter was “raising her” in ways she never thought possible and was about to experience her own re-birthing and metamorphosis into motherhood to meet and embrace her daughter’s essence for all she came into this life to be, serve and teach her.

Sandra is a Conscious Parent / Life Coach, Author and Founder of The Conscious Parent Blog and brings an authentic, open and honest heart to each connection in her life. Her offering is to expand and deepen the conversations around conscious parenting for all parents and parent-type figures, to raise our collective self-awareness and to make this world better for our children to live and lead and for generations to come.

The Mother’s Day Edition

Is self care selfish? Are you just barely coping and surviving or thriving in your motherhood?

“MOTHERHOOD is not for the faint of heart!! It is said that the SPIRITUAL JOURNEY is about acquiring nothing, but releasing everything that we have picked up along the way that gets in the way of expressing our fullest potential.

This powerful, authentic and enlightening conversation will move you.

In this episode:
-what is your mindset around self care and why
-root causes for women and moms for not taking care of themselves
-do you give yourself permission to ask for help and receive help?
-what are your residual cultural beliefs around motherhood
-how do you deal with guilt?

Not Like My Mother: Breaking Free From The Past, From Self Sacrifice To Self Love And Empowerment
53:55

Parenting is filled with lots of triggers. My guest Michelle Lee, a women's empowerment coach, shares her powerful story of breaking free from the past, healing from emotional wounds, and learning to love herself.

She had her first baby when she was 14 and went though a private adoption.

“I wanted to give my daughter what I didn’t get from my childhood. ”

She wasn’t always the Mom she is today.

The difference between between being physically present and emotionally present.

“I just wanted to be loved. I didn’t feel loved as a child and I did what I thought what give her love. She sacrificed her body at 14 only to learn that it wasn’t it. She looked for that love in men, in marriage and her children. It was only into her 30‘s she discovered that no one is responsible for making you feel loved. You must love yourself first.  Not men, not marriage and definitely not your children.

Also...

-Healing is an inside job.

-You can’t give what you didn’t receive.

-The difference between physical presence and emotional

-We need to give our children what they need NOT what we think they need.

 

“My intentions was to be different than my mom but I ended up repeating my mothers’ mothering.”

When you become a mother you shouldn’t give up your life. You don’t have to sacrifices yourself. You need to find things that make you happy and fulfilled.

“I am not self sacrificing and my presence is of higher quality because I have fed my soul with what gives me joy. ”

We automatically assume and want to give our children what we think they need. Without asking them what they need makes us a self absorbed parent. But that is a sign of unhealed trauma and you can’t see beyond that. Until we heal those traumas, we are bound to repeat those same old patterns.

---when we stop making demands of other people to fill us with something...that’s when we start to heal.

On this episode host Anna Seewald talks to Dr. Jen Riday on the importance of self care. Jen shares a heartbreaking story from her life that led her to shift things in her life.

About Jen: Jen is a 42-year-old mom of six and Women’s Happiness Expert who lives just outside of Madison, Wisconsin with her family. Jen was raised on a farm with the values of hard work and honesty, and today Jen’s priorities are spirituality, family, health and helping women find happiness (in that order). In her free time Jen enjoys yoga, meditation, time in nature, and curling up with a great book.

NUGGETS OF WISDOM FROM JEN:

After I clawed myself out of the emotional pit that resulted from events on the most horrible day of my life (so far), I learned several things that helped me let go of the guilt I used to feel when I took time for myself:

Remember, I’m loved and I’m worthy.
I’m 100% in charge of my life and happiness.
The greatest gift I can give my loved ones is my own happiness.

41:30

This is our monthly special episode. Host parent educator Anna Seewald and her freind and colleague Sarah Maclaughlin answer listener questions. The questions they got this month: "Anna, question for your podcast for a friend. How do you stop a 13 year old boy from watching YouTube videos on pregnancy pros and cons? It started with some class in school that the kid missed, they talked about pregnancy so he watched a video about it at home but then it seems to have gotten out of hand. Some videos are pretty graphic. " "Hi Anna. It's Ranela. I have a question. how would you handle the fibbing? Lying about little things: lifting the toilet lid when urinating, not wiping the urine off the floor, eating something that belongs to someone else, having taken a shower, etc. " "I want to know how to handle jealousy between siblings if one is academically better than other and is appreciated by the family? " And of course...the voicemail question about handling BIG EMOTIONS. You don't want to miss. In the segment Examples from Our Homes they both share some good stories you don't want to miss. Yes, we mess up too-they say. In the segment Our Favorite Things Anna and Sarah share their favorite parenting books of the month. What are they reading and recommending? Check it out.
