Even though parenting goals are going to differ, most parent share the common goal to build and maintain a relationship with their child(ren) of trust, safety and connection. This means creating and maintaining the relationship in such a way that our kids want to come to us with their problems and struggles, that they feel safe with us to share their fears, their hurts, their goals and their dreams. We want them to see us as a place of refuge, a soft place to land, and a helpful and positive resource. In this episode, I discuss how to create this type of connection that will serve your kids and your connection for life.Today's Sponsor:Mathnasium: Visit to find a center near youFollow on IG: @yourvillageonlinewebsite (for parenting classes on demand)https://www.yourvillageonline.comSupport this podcast at — Inquiries: & Opt-Out:
#306: The Anger Episode

#306: The Anger Episode


Anger in parenting often feels so loaded & unacceptable. But every emotion has a purpose. Learning how to accept them, hear the message they are sending and then use them for the positive is what emotional competence is all about. In this episode I cover how we can learn to accept, tune in, process and use our anger as a parent for positive introspection, growth and as a catalyst to getting needs met that we may be ignoring. This also help us become better equipped to lead and guide our kids in working with their own anger and its messages.Sponsors:Gobble: Gobble: Code: PARENTING636 for 6 meals for $36TalkSpace: Use code: PARENTING for $100 offMathnasium: to find a center near youFollow on IG: @yourvillageonlinewebsite (for parenting classes on demand)https://www.yourvillageonline.comSupport this podcast at — Inquiries: & Opt-Out:

Co-dependence is rampant in modern society, with studies showing 90-96% of adults exhibit some level of co-dependence. Because children do need parents to varying degrees throughout childhood, it can be difficult to parse out healthy parent-child connection to when it spills over to co-dependent patterns. Since most adults have experienced some level of co-dependence in their own childhood, it's hard to always recognize how it expresses in our own parenting. How can we as parents begin to break these patterns for our kids so they can learn healthy relationship patterns? In this episode, I cover what co-dependence is, signs of co-dependence in general, how it often shows up in parent-child dynamics and some steps to freeing our kids from this unhealthy and often detrimental pattern of relating.Support this podcast at — Inquiries: & Opt-Out:

Found it helpful but there seems to be a problem in the podcast audio. It keeps skipping forward as if someone edited out all the pauses but overdid it a little bit.
