Do you ever feel like you are caught in the trap of overparenting? Today we talk about fostering independence in our kids using inspiration from the book How to Raise and Adult by Julie Lythcott-Hainsworth. As the Dean of Freshman at Stanford University, she spent a lot of time interacting with young adults. She found that despite the best of intentions, many parents are robbing their children of the chance to be their own independent person, and that this epidemic of child-like adults has been on the rise in recent years. In this episode, we discuss possible antidotes to this issue as our children grow. We focus on independence, wholeness, and emotional resilience. For a list of age appropriate tasks most kids can complete independently, check out:https://www.familyeducation.com/life/individuality/guide-to-teach-your-child-life-skills-by-ageYou can find the book that inspired us here: How to Raise an Adult: Break Free of the Overparenting Trap and Prepare Your Kid for Success https://www.amazon.com/dp/1250093635/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_u-meDbES0W78H--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

We are all trying to do our best as parents, but as we adopt the wholehearted parenting philosophy, we might encounter resistance from people around us. Many of those people are well meaning, and some are not. It can be difficult because parenting is, well, a sensitive subject! And what about those people in our life who spend a lot of time with our kids and use differing parenting styles on them?Today we are going to give some tips to help you through those situations. (Hint: It has less to do other people than you think:). Books we refer to: I Can’t Wait to Go to the Dentist! By Jeanie U. Allen:Amazon.com: I Can't Wait to Go to the Dentist!

We all know that kids need healthy boundaries around screen time, but what about us adults? There are fewer statistics on what it does to our health and brains, but wow—the research that has been done is...alarming. Technology is AWESOME, but it turns out that we adults also need time for intentional connection away from our devices. And whatever boundaries we set for ourselves impacts our own physical and mental health, and our relationships with the people we care about the most. We have an amazing chance to model what living a balanced, wholehearted life can look like with the convenience of smart technology in it while not letting it supersede the more important parts of our life. In today’s episode, we walk you through the stats to help give you some motivation to find screen time balance for yourself, and then give you some super helpful tips on how to do it.Books and articles we refer to:The Big Disconnect: Protecting Childhood and Family Relationships in the Digital Age https://www.amazon.com/dp/0062082434/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_uPq9CbYGF1G1FThe Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains https://www.amazon.com/dp/0393339750/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_dQq9Cb3ZE75DDhttps://www.cdc.gov/nccdphp/dnpao/multimedia/infographics/getmoving.html?CDC_AA_refVal=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cdc.gov%2Fnccdphp%2Fdch%2Fmultimedia%2Finfographics%2Fgetmoving.htmhttps://www.yourmodernfamily.com/scary-truth-whats-hurting-kids/https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/parenting/wp/2014/08/06/parents-are-the-ones-who-need-limits-on-screen-time/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.2c2718935e0dhttps://www.bustle.com/articles/117838-5-things-too-much-screen-time-does-to-your-body--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

Nobody likes it when their toddlers misbehave. But what about older children, tweens and teens? Acting out happens at every age.

Staying Open to The Present

Staying Open to The Present

We cling to good experiences in our lives, and we attempt to close ourselves to bad ones. What’s wrong with that? This doesn’t allow either one to flow through us, and we often times end up losing the gift of the present moment when we do that. Have you ever been having a beautiful moment watching someone you love, when along comes a fearful thought about the future of that person to squash that joy? We will explore in this episode how you can stay open to the present moment, and lean into whatever feeling arises, positive or negative. This leads to so much present moment freedom.

We get more questions about sibling conflict than any other topic! We know that how our kids get along can make or break our days. As parents we are the source of all our kids need, it is natural for them to feel resentment towards their siblings. In this episode we break down our favorite tips for guiding sibling conflict without interfering with their process. Here are the links of books related to this topic: Siblings without rivalry Janet Lansbury Unruffled Podcast--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
In this episode, we delve deeper into how disciplining from a place of true acceptance is far more powerful than from a place based on expectation and control. Acceptance does not mean parenting from a passive stat of allowance of indulgence. In fact, it is quite the opposite. We can still hold our boundaries with strength, but our children will feel at their core that our love for them is not on the line. Today we zoom in on specific, concrete examples to help us as parents be able to release control and really connect with our kids in the present moment. This is where the magic happens.Here are the links of books related to this topic:The Awakened Family: How to Raise Empowered, Resilient, and Conscious Children https://www.amazon.com/dp/0399563970/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_NkCVCbTXCH9RM--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

I was wondering if you had any advice on leaving children with a nanny or babysitter? do you worry about them following your same parenting guidelines or not so much?
