In this episode I discuss summer time and how it can be pretty stressful for us moms. It’s so common for moms to think deep down that motherhood equals martyrhood. Ya, that never works out for us.

6/11/2018
More
In this episode, I talk about the pressure of final exams for kids in middle and high school...stream of consciousness style, i.e. “Randi Rambling” on my evening doggy walk. I bring up our achievement oriented culture while considering the need to possibly redefine the “successful” student in our changing world. Do we really think it’s the kids that excel at traditional education that will grow up to be the change agents we need to lead tomorrow? I talk about thinking about the pressure...

MMP12: Lessons learned from Gary Vee’s mom - a woman I’ve never met

5/21/2018
More
In this episode, I discuss a very successful business guy named Gary Vaynerchuk and his story. I think it’s important to find examples of the power we have as moms on shaping our kids and ultimately the future. If we truly understand the impact and power that an unconditionally loving, empathetic and connected mom has on her kids, we feel even more inspired to retrain our brains, master our minds and change the conversations in our homes. Topics covered: Gary VaynerchukMrs. Vaynerchuk -...

MMP10: How to Have a Productive Conversation with your kids

5/7/2018

In fact, lecturing often reinforcing the behavior we wish to eliminate while also damaging our relationships. I have an approach that will teach you how to infuse empathy into your conversations so that they are actually effective, connecting and ultimately, PRODUCTIVE. This is truly the best advanced tool that I teach. I completely...

MMP07: Tech Addiction - Some Parenting Guidance on this Pressing Childhood Epidemic

4/16/2018
More
In this episode, I discuss the documentary Screenagers and the silent addiction epidemic that we are facing as a society. I had been wanting to attend a screening of Screenagers and was coincidentally invited to be a panelist at a private school in my home city. Needless to say, I had a pit in my stomach as I watched the reality of what we are facing in terms of screen addiction and how it affects our kids and ourselves, frankly. The documentary validates much of what I teach when it...

MMP06: Why Time Out is Bogus

4/9/2018
More
Why Time Out is Bogus In this episode, I discuss time-out; the punishment that many of us have used to replace spanking. We are often misguided to believe that it’s this progressive humane improvement when it’s potentially just as damaging emotionally as spanking is physically. I know many parents are simply looking for resources to teach their kids the difference between right and wrong. The punishment model has rarely been questioned in years past and yet, all the researchers and...

MMP05: Misunderstood and Misdiagnosed Kids

4/2/2018
More
I discuss kids that I refer to as “sensitive nervous system kids” who present as challenging and willful and how they are usually misunderstood and frequently misdiagnosed as having conditions like ADHD. As parents we are often confused about what to do and what our options really are when it comes to these strong willed kids. Unfortunately, when we turn to traditional resources we are often led down a 1 size fits all path and it’s often not the right one for our kids. I’m on a mission...

This tool discussed in today’s conversation will help you to immediately improve the conversations in your home with your threenagers and your teenagers. Perspective taking is a form of empathy. I like to call it: Walking in your child’s shoes. When you imagine walking in...

MMP03: Challenging kiddos, do you have a strong willed one?

3/19/2018
More
In this episode, we are going to discuss strong willed kids. These kids present as defiant and defensive. Everyone seems to walk on eggshells around these kids. Most likely, these kids have a highly sensitive nervous system. Smells are smellier, tastes are more intense, tags are scratchy-er, noises are noisier.When you have a highly sensitive nervous system, the world feels overstimulating most of the time and even more so during early childhood.

MMP01:Why changing the conversations in your home is a total game changer

3/5/2018
More
As parents, we frequently find ourselves in a gap between the parent we want to be and the one we currently are when our kids are pushing our buttons. This is usually when we either yell (fight) or check out (flight). That’s right, we go into basic survival mode and many families find themselves living in a state of survival which often looks and feels a lot like everyone walking on eggshells. This is the opposite of what we want the vibe to be in our household. The Parent Gap is the name...
