This week Dr. Catherine Pearlman joins the show for a conversation about her book Ignore It! How Selectively Looking the Other Way Can Decrease Behavioral Problems and Increase Parenting Satisfaction. After years of social work coaching young mothers, Dr. Pearlman founded the Family Coach, where she visits homes and coaches parents through their most stressful time of day. 

Catherine’s interview includes a dissection of how exactly the Ignore It! principles work. It’s not about ignoring your teen - rather, it’s about ignoring your teen’s bad antics so your teen stops repeating them! 

Catherine also clarifies when you should NOT ignore things. Most important on the list of things to acknowledge? Good behavior!  

In this episode we cover:

  • How to quash negotiations

  • Exactly how the Ignore It! method works

  • What to expect the first time you ‘ignore it’

  • How a ‘negative’ response can still be rewarding

  • Natural consequences and how to use them

Dr. Pearlman writes the column “Dear Family Coach”, which has been syndicated in publications like the Wall Street Journal, CNN.com, Sports Illustrated, and the Huffington Post. Excited to be sharing all that parenting wisdom in this interview!
