    “It takes a village to raise a child.” is an old saying I’m sure many of you have heard.

With a specialty in working with teens, he’ll share with us his personal parenting philosophies and how he’s been working with parents to inspire and motivate them to build healthy and genuine connections with their kids.

    What Changes a Child’s Behavior

    13:07

    We parents have been taught that our children’s behavior must be corrected through punishments and manipulations, and sadly, this has been accepted as the default mode of parenting. And when compounding other stressors in lives, it becomes so easy to unconsciously fall back on that out of desperation to change their behavior. So I want to talk about where we should focus when it comes to our children’s behavior. Looking inward and self-reflecting on our own behavior is a critical factor in transforming our relationship with our children into a healthier one. You’d be surprised at how willingly children will open up to us when we make an active effort to change, so please make sure to listen in on this episode!   Episode Highlights: We resort to punishments as a desperate attempt to change our child’s behavior Nobody likes being manipulated or be forced to comply, especially children The ultimate way to change our family’s dynamics is to change ourselves   Resources mentioned in this episode: "Parenting from the Inside Out” by Daniel J. Siegel   Did you know that special time is the lifeblood of connection? Join me live the week of October 25th in the Peace and Parenting Facebook Group for my first ever free special challenge where I teach you about the ins and outs of special time. I’ll also be answering questions you may have and provide extra support material.   --   Enjoy today’s episode?

    Harsh Parenting Creates Children Who Make More Mistakes

    14:24

    When your child makes a mistake, you want to help them process and understand their mistake without the use of shame, punishments, or making them feel like you’re disappointed in them.  Harsh parenting does absolutely no favors for us or our kids, and as a parent who used to subscribe to that kind of parenting, I want to take the time to talk about this, and share how shifting my mindset towards a more conscious and connective one has done more good for my family than any punishment has. There are no shortcuts to connective parenting but I hope this episode can help you get started!    Episode Highlights: Why it’s problematic for kids to worry over their parent’s reaction more than the actual mistake Punishments impede our kids’ ability to think properly How conscious parenting can change you and your family’s life for the better   Check out my Peace and Parenting resources: Linktree @peaceandparenting Season 1, Episode 1: Connection One-on-One Private Parenting Sessions   Thanks to Hand in Hand Parenting, I managed to create a major shift in my parenting that allowed me to create a better connection with my daughters.

    Why Is Play So Hard Sometimes with Guest Emily Murray from Hand in Hand Parenting

    22:15

    Many of us have had experiences with bottling up emotions, and kids are no exceptions to this. Kids aren’t as capable of properly communicating their emotions so when there’s a backlog of feelings like frustration and sadness, this can make them act out so they can vent. This can be equally frustrating for parents too but it is possible to connect with your kids in a way they can easily understand. For this episode, I’m joined by Emily, a member from the Hand in Hand Parenting group and she will share with us one of their five listening tools for parents-- playlistening! Play is an important aspect of kids’ lives and it can be used as a better response to unsavory behavior over shame and encourages you to meet aggression with affection. Hand in Hand Parenting has been instrumental in my journey to become a better parent for my daughters, and I hope this will help any of you having similar struggles so don’t forget to listen in!   Episode Highlights: Playlisten as a form of connection through play There is a time to be silly and there is a time to seriously connect Why playlistening wasn’t appealing to Emily at first Children are good and they want to be good Why play can be hard for parents The benefits of playlistening    Connect with Hand in Hand Parenting: Website | Hand in Hand Parenting Facebook | Hand in Hand Parenting Community Group   Thanks to Hand in Hand Parenting, I managed to create a major shift in my parenting that allowed me to create a better connection with my daughters.

    Behavior Analysis and Parenting: Questions from Guest Shelly

    26:00

    Our kids have the right to say “no” and have choices. But it’s a delicate balancing act between that and making sure not to give in to everything they say either. Since kids also have underdeveloped brains, it can be difficult for them to properly communicate their negative emotions which can put them into conflict with their parents and other kids. This challenge is a natural frustration for parents and is something my guest is familiar with. Shelly Belk, behavior change coach and mother, joins me for this episode to ask me questions on parenting, and how she can better reconcile her background in behavior analysis while raising her daughter with empathy. We’ll always discuss the importance of allowing our children to experience and fail; to be the counselor and confidant rather than the fixer of their problems. Don’t miss out on this week’s episode so we can help our kids navigate their feelings and create healthier connections with them!   Episode Highlights: How can we navigate with kids who are good at negotiating Empathizing with our kids and allowing them to feel and process their negative emotions Teaching our kids to respect other kids’ boundaries without making them submissive Lean into inconsistency and expect the feelings   Connect with Shelly: Website | Shelly Belk Coaching Instagram | @shellybelkcoaching Facebook | Shelly Belk Coaching   Are you ready to change your family dynamic through connective parenting?
