When Your Child Lies to You – 046

6/25/2019
More
Nothing seems to upset parents more than when their child lies to them. But since lying is a normal and natural part of child development, every parent deals with it at some point. While you may not have control over whether or not your child lies to you, you do have control over how you think, feel, and act when he does. Join me in this episode as I talk about why kids lie, and how to think about lying and trust in ways that serve you and your family.

Making New Friends – 044

6/11/2019
More
From an early age, friendships are a vital part of our social development and emotional well-being. As we grow older, and especially after having kids, we tend to get so caught up in our responsibilities at home and at work that we sometimes neglect to foster our connections with people other than our kids, spouses, and immediate family members. But before you go start looking for new friends, it's important to make sure you have the right mindset. Join me for today's episode, where I share...

How to Stop Beating Yourself Up – 042

5/28/2019
More
Most of us would never speak to our best friends the way we speak to ourselves. When we make a mistake or act in a way we regret, we mentally beat ourselves up with harsh, negative self-talk. Our brains think that this kind of self-punishment is somehow protective and helpful. In this episode, I explain why we beat ourselves up, why it's counterproductive, and the process for how to stop doing it. www.lessdramamoremama.com/042

Dealing with Entitlement – 041

5/21/2019
More
Entitled kids believe the world revolves around them. They want what they want, when they want it, and they don’t know when enough is enough. The rules don’t apply to them. They will resort to whining, negotiating, begging, pleading, guilt-tripping, arguing, and tantruming to get their way. They're not born with a sense of entitlement; they learn it from well-intentioned parents who unwittingly teach it to them by giving in to their demands. If you have kids who act entitled, today's episode...
