    CONNECTED PARENTING EPISODE 57 – Yelling

    15:50

    Yelling is a very popular parenting technique, but not a very effective one. If it was, there would be a lot of very well-behaved children in this world! Yelling doesn’t work.  At best, your kids tune you out and roll their eyes or worse they are terrified.  In this episode, Jennifer explores why we yell, how it impacts our kids and ourselves, and what we can do instead.

    CONNECTED PARENTING EPISODE 56 – Is your Child a Ruiner?

    17:26

    I once had a little girl in my office, in tears, calling herself “the ruiner”. She confessed that she ruins everything she is excited about... birthdays, holidays, vacations. Everything! This stuck with me and I have heard it over and over again, over the years, both from kids and parents. Why do some kids ruin things and sabotage things? In this episode I break down why this happens and its effect on the whole family.

    CONNECTED PARENTING EPISODE 55 – The Gift of Emotional Regulation

    27:01

    In this podcast, Jennifer discusses the importance of emotional literacy and emotional processing. Feelings are meant to be felt… They are essential in helping us navigate relationships, stay safe, make good choices, and to be at peace in our world. Feelings are information. If we ignore that information - if we don’t listen - feelings don’t go away.  They build in intensity and find creative ways to get our attention. One way or another, your brain or your body will make you listen. In this episode, Jennifer not only talks about why this is so important, but teaches you how to listen and process intense feelings. Learning to feel your feelings and regulate emotion is the greatest gift you can give yourself and ultimately the greatest gift you can give your child.

    CONNECTED PARENTING EPISODE 54 – Being the Parent of That Kid

    22:09

    Do you notice the judgmental glances from other parents when you drop your child off at school or birthday parties? Can you sense the teacher is frustrated and fed up with your child? Do you hold your breath as you approach the playground crossing your fingers hoping that your child behaves? Does your heart skip a beat when the phone rings for fear it is the school? In this episode, Jennifer talks about being the parent of  “that kid.” It is heartbreaking when you know your child is struggling and to know that others don’t understand. You know that he can be loving, sensitive and well-meaning, but others don’t always see this side of him. She can be maddening and frustrating at home at times, but seeing her so misunderstood is hard to bear. In this episode, Jennifer will help you to learn powerful strategies that will help you understand your child, advocate for your child, and know that you are not alone.

    CONNECTED PARENTING EPISODE 51 – Rewriting Your Child’s Story

    16:08

    Many children who “act out”, have difficult behaviours, and a strong counter will (gladiators, as I like to call them), have a story about themselves. “I’m the bad one in the family. I am the one who wrecks everything. I am a destructive force in my family’s world.”  That story can affect choices, behaviour, self-esteem, and emotional regulation. As parents, it is important to rewrite that story because your child is so much more than their behavior. Join me and my special guest, Natalie Syrmopoulos from the Connected Parenting team, in this episode to learn how to use an accomplishment book to rewrite your child’s story - for them and for you.
