In this episode: Janet responds to the parent of two kids who overheard her 4.5 year old taunting another child in the park and wasn’t sure how to react to that sort of unkind behavior. On the one hand, she didn’t want to impose judgement on her daughter by scolding and lecturing. On the other, “I want to help coach her on being kind and a good human being." She's unsure of what to do to help foster these traits and is asking Janet for clarification.For more advice on common parenting issues, please check out Janet's best-selling books on audio, FREE with a 30-day trial membership at Audible (adbl.co/2OBVztZ).

In this episode: Janet responds to a parent with a toddler and four-year-old who struggles to connect with her kids individually, and neither reacts well when the other is getting mom’s attention. For instance, she says when she tries to give her older son some lap time, “my 18-month-old clearly gets jealous and starts squealing, attempting to climb on me, hitting his brother.” She’s wondering if it’s possible to really connect with either child when both are upset.For more advice on common parenting issues, please check out Janet's best-selling books on audio, FREE with a 30-day trial membership at Audible (adbl.co/2OBVztZ).

In this episode: Janet responds to a parent who says her kids scream at her, shout orders, complain about their lives, and call her a “rubbish mum.” While she acknowledges her former partner’s emotionally abusive behavior is probably a factor in their behavior, and she believes her kids should express their emotions fully, she’s fed up. “How much abuse and screaming am I supposed to put up with before I stop acknowledging, stop empathizing, and say enough is enough?”For more advice on common parenting issues, please check out Janet's best-selling books on audio, FREE with a 30-day trial membership at Audible (adbl.co/2OBVztZ).

In this episode: Janet responds to a mom who says her 2-year-old has an extreme case of “parental favoritism.” When she’s not home, father and daughter enjoy a wonderful relationship. But if she’s nearby, her daughter “refuses to allow my husband to help, comfort, even exist.” She writes: “We are completely befuddled, and as you can imagine, my husband is just crushed.” They’re both wondering why their daughter behaves this way and how they might address it.For more advice on common parenting issues, please check out Janet's best-selling books on audio, FREE with a 30-day trial membership at Audible (adbl.co/2OBVztZ).

In this episode: Janet responds to the parent of a toddler who says her son “cries, whines, and screams for everything he wants or needs.” She’s not sure how to respond. Sometimes she tries to calm him down, which tends to makes things worse, and sometimes she just gives in. She wants to set boundaries but doesn’t know how to do it in a way that he will understand without setting off a tantrum. This mom feels she’s in a no-win situation and would like Janet's advice about how she should react to his loud, emphatic requests.For more advice on common parenting issues, please check out Janet's best-selling books on audio, FREE with a 30-day trial membership at Audible (adbl.co/2OBVztZ).

In this episode: Janet responds to an e-mail from a parent who says her 4-year-old has lately become very demanding for attention. “She won’t let us talk with friends, family, or over the phone.

I have a sister in law that feeds into every tantrum of her 2.5 yr old daughter. If the toddler doesn't get what she wants, she says mommy mommy, with her arms up in the air. My sister in law then picks her up and coddles her. While she has responded within her own emotional pace and tone, I feel the body language is misleading. Do you agree with this response? What body language is appropriate for the three scenarios you outlined?

How do you mold children to listen I have a 6 year old son and a 9 year old daughter I tell them at least 5 times to put some thing away?

I feel the same way this person feels. I live my daughter from the bottom of my heart, but sometimes she irritates me in a way that I feel guilty for wanting to be alone sometimes. I've been working on it but it's still hard to manage do many things and feelings at the same time.

I've had this exact situation with toothbrushing! I decided a year ago to stop having the fight with my daughter, I talked to her about it, and things have been brilliant ever since. This reminds me too CONNECT.

i have a comment. my son started hitting at 20 months too but it was out of discovering. at some point he would bite. but now he hits out of jealousy when fighting over toys. he is very cheerful and playful but i think he hits when he is angry to compensate for his small size. i try to b supportive but my in laws and family are very judgemental and they put him down bcz of this. they let my son who is now 3 years old feel like he has to b perfect. what do i do? they make him say sorry all the time and so do i.
