Episode Date
How To Get Your Child To Clean Up After Themselves
09:47

Our children stand before us with endless “What” and “Why” questions, they push back on our requests, refuse our meals, and challenge us to go back inside and come up with something better than, “Because I said so!”

But the truth is, during these formative years, our children take in very little of our verbal communication with them.

So many parents worry about crafting the perfect answer, offering the right activity, disciplining the most effectively, etc, when what matters the most is our internal world.

They mimic the way we care, our devotion, our sense of purpose, our problem-solving strategies, our rigidity, the way we love…

Useful Tips For Parenting and Life w/ Rob Scott
01:05:10

Today’s conversation is a dense one.  

I would recommend listening when you are not distracted or multi tasking.

We are headed into about an hour with a dear friend of mine named Rob Scott.

He has spent the last decade of his life working with hundreds of thousands of people, shifting their identities, and showing them how to evolve their consciousness and get incredible results across all areas of their businesses, their health, their relationships, and their entire lives.

I have been blessed with the opportunity to work with Rob myself in a few different ways over the past 4 years and I am so grateful.  What I find so profound is that all of the shifts I made while working with him have been impossible to unsee. And the illumination of what is truly serving me in my life, being able to let go of all that isn’t, has allowed me to show up in service to you parents in a whole new way.

So I am really excited to share this conversation with you.  

Much Love.
-Christina

The Truth Of Our Voice
14:30

It can feel impossible to speak our truth when it has been dismissed and de-valued our entire life.

Especially when our subconscious has connected speaking out to experiencing pain.

It can feel scary to find out that our truth looks very different from who our parents think we should be.

Every human walking the earth has a story.

As we come into contact, we cannot help but to project our story onto each other.

When we take the time to get to know our own story, our own beliefs, our own limitations, the more we begin to see what belongs to us and what belongs to the other.

If we are blind to this when we have children, they quickly become the screens for our personal movie.

It's OK to Let Your Sads Out
07:33
When our child is tantruming, pushing back or having a difficult time it can be challenging for us to hold space in that moment because we have so many unshed tears ourselves. 
 
Years and years of suppressed emotions that then get "triggered" when our child is going through something or an experience that we have not yet had the opportunity to work through or release ourselves. 
 
So in the heat of the moment, it can be difficult to untangle which emotions belong to us and which ones belong to our child.
 
A mentor once offered me a very useful shift in perspective and that's what I want to share with you today.
 
Much Love,
Christina

Letting Go of Agenda
21:15

It can be exhausting to go through every day guiding a young child this way and that way, moment by moment.

When you develop a routine it will carry the whole family and the child quickly learns what is coming next which supports them to go with the flow.

By setting a routine you are deciding ahead of time, with your partner and any other caregivers, what your limits are and where they lie.

This way when something unexpected comes up, you are supported by this framework.

How To Build Your Child's Emotional Intelligence
09:19

Emotional and social intelligence grows and develops through relationship and primarily through the experiences that a child has with his or her parents.

When we offer our children empathy and help them to cope with negative feelings like anger, sadness, and fear, we create a foundation of loyalty and trust that our children carry with them throughout their lives.

This is a quick story of how I approach this with my daughter.

In Service,
Christina

The Difference Between Threats and Consequences
20:00

This is a difficult place and the definitions of these ideas often get wrongly exchanged...

So I want to start by breaking them down a bit.

Threats are empty and cruel.

They simply teach our children to fear us rather than to problem solve and understand how behavior is related to consequences.

There is a difference between natural and logical consequences and we have to be careful not to exchange the word consequence for punishment. Especially when it is handed down out of frustration and anger.
