Ep 41. New Year, Same You

In the new year, we always seem to hear the phrase New Year, New You. The new year is all about reinventing ourselves and setting aside who we are right now to become something even better. And although I do believe that personal growth and development and continually becoming something better than we were yesterday is a hugely important part of life, I believe it’s also important to love and accept ourselves along the way. So what if this year, we started out by deciding to really get to...


Ep 40. It's More Than Tradition

Family traditions mean so much more to your child than just family fun. These traditions help to create a sense of self, define who they are, and form deep connections with their family and their roots. They provide something steady, reliable and safe in a confusing world. Tune in for more on this and also for some great holiday tradition ideas from fellow listeners! Do you have questions or concerns about your child? Let me be your mom coach, if even for just 30 minutes. You might be...


Ep 39. Co-Parenting Through the Holidays

The holidays can be a stressful time for just about anyone, but if you’re a separated or divorced parent, adding that in on top of what you already have going on adds another level of stress. Now you have to navigate separate household schedules, extended family expectations, both parents wanting to spend as much time with your child as possible during this special time, along with all of the emotional stuff you still might be working through. Holiday co-parenting can be so tough. You are...


Ep 38. The Greatness of Gratitude

Expressing (and receiving) gratitude has even greater benefits than you might have known. Not only does it help us to create a more positive mental outlook, but it can enhance our physical and emotional health as well. There are so many studies that have been done about the benefits of gratitude, and I sum it all up for you here. With this new knowledge of the greatness of gratitude and how it can benefit us in our daily lives, I hope we bring these lessons to our children so that they can...


Ep 37. Children & Smartphones, Pt 2: Social Media

Being the first generation of mothers to parent the use of cell phones, we are just starting to learn the effects that social media is having on our children. Cyberbullying is part of it, yes, but a much larger part of it is the endless scrolling as our children sit there and compare themselves to others all day long. This simple act is causing our children's anxiety, depression, and suicidal thoughts to skyrocket. In this episode, I give you a few things you can do to help lessen the...


Ep 36. Children & Smartphones Pt. 1: Contracts

Have you ever thought about the fact that we are the first generation of parents to ever parent the use of cell phones? I think that deserves a badge of honor! In this episode, we talk about using cell phone contracts with our children. This is something you might want to consider if you don't already have one in place. Just like everything else in life we are expected to teach our children, the use of smartphones is no different. Your child will not automatically know how to use their...

Ep 29. Marriage and the Horsemen

Today I am talking about the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and what in the world this has to do with marriage. This concept was introduced by Dr. John Gottman who has written books about how these certain communication styles, that he has named The Four Horsemen, if allowed to run rampant in a relationship, are lethal. They usually enter a relationship in a certain order, and if allowed to stay there, that marriage or relationship will most likely fail. I'm hoping this information will...


Ep 28. The Power of Genuine Praise

Today we are talking about how important your words of praise and encouragement are to your child. Praise is so good for your child’s confidence and sense of self. It also makes them want to repeat the behaviors you praised them for, usually. Praise really works. It’s what kids need. Watch your discouraged child start to change before your eyes. Although there are better ways than others to praise your child, which we talk about, I truly believe any praise is better than no praise at all....

Ep 23. The Code

Did you know that sometimes your child feels completely pressured to go somewhere or do something with a friend and that they absolutely don’t want to do? We might think that because they’re calling us or texting us to ask to go somewhere with their friend or stay longer at their house, that that is something they want to do. But a lot of times, it isn’t what they want; they just don’t know how to get out of a situation themselves. So this is when THE CODE works brilliantly. It is something...
