Today I share an article about Zara McDermott and Chloe, two women who have been victim of “Revenge Porn”, the uninvited sharing of intimate photos. This is a very serious subject that is happening more and more frequently. We need to discuss this with our teens and help them understand the dangers of taking and sharing intimate photos. Unsure how …
 
Do you find that you’re always battling with your child in arguments? This is such a common problem that parents reach out to me about. These problems are almost always a lack of understanding of the other person’s perspective. This lack of understanding gets us triggered! But you only get trapped if you pick up the other end of that rope. How do y…
 
Are you a naturally pessimistic person? It makes a big difference in how we show up as a parent. If we are coming in from a lack-based, or pessimistic mindset, it makes it awfully hard to parent. However, we can work on ourselves and use the C-crets so we can show up and parent. It takes a lot of committed work, but it can be done. Do you want to k…
 
How many times have you heard yourselves saying that to your children? I’m sure a lot! But how well does it work for you? Probably not very well. So, is there a way you can get your kids off their phones, when the platforms on the phones they’re using are hooking them back in, without losing your shit? It’s easy to approach them from a place of fru…

Have you ever come across the powerful little book called, The 4 Agreements, by Don Miguel Ruiz? Today on the show I thought that I would visit the book and talk about the 4 agreements relative to parenting and boy oh boy, isn’t it the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth? Curious? You “should” be! Tune in… The 4 Agreements by Don Migue…
 
Oh, what a huge question this is, and I do have an answer for you! There are so many things to have to consider before answering it and, given the answer is not so simple, I suggest you tune in and get the whole scoop before I just tell you YES or NO! Tune in… If you would like to join my private Facebook Group, Parenting In The Thick Of It and joi…
 
The privacy of the rich and famous has always been something so highly protected but yet still so violated. Our children today, on the other hand, freely give up their privacy and give the world a play-by-play of everything they do. I refer to this as self-induced Paparazzi, where children seek out validation of others through a dependency on Socia…
 
“Now entering the ring…” Have you ever thought that part of your job as a parent would be to act as a boxing match referee? Well, if you’re a parent of multiple children, you know all too well that siblings will fight and that you are always called upon to intervene. However, how you respond to sibling rivalry will set the course for your children.…
 
Remember Michelle? The brave mom who shared some of her challenges with me live on the show. Well, she’s back and she’s not doing so great. And I’m sure that many of you will relate. Off the back of Spring Break and the kids being home, she’s struggling to juggle it all and feel good enough in her role as mom. Here’s what I suggested. Tune in…. PS.…
 
Finding the balance between giving your kids enough independence to allow them to take responsibility for and limiting them because you know they haven’t yet got quite what it takes to do so, can be hard. They often want more independence than they are capable of being responsible for and fight us when we then impose limits their freedom. If you st…
 
I bet you can remember so much from your childhood: from riding your bikes with friends, to watching Saturday morning cartoons before you headed out on a family adventure. Our childhood was significantly different to that of our kids. In a world so screen dependent, what do you think your kids will remember of their childhood? What do you want them…
 
How often do you have an idea or outcome in your head for your kid only to find yourself getting reactive because they’re not doing what you expected of them, or the way you would have done it? When we ask all those well-meaning questions as soon as they enter the door or clean up something they are perfectly capable of doing for themselves, we “in…
 
Do you ever find yourself wishing that your kids would just listen to you, take your advice, be more like their sister, choose the “right” subject at school, or keep playing soccer???? Don’t worry, I hear you! And, I know you don’t want to change your kid into something they are not, but HOW do you deal with this? How do you get them to listen to y…

In episode 496 (be sure you catch it, it is really good), I interviewed Meghan Owenz and she posed this very interesting question? I said to her that I would ask you. So… my dedicated listeners, wouldn’t it be interesting to find out what your teenagers would want to do more of! Let’s ask them and please, please share your answers with me. Imagine …
 
Do you often find yourself asking “Why does it always have to be me?” as you look at your kids and partner “seemingly” doing nothing? It’s always me who puts all their s#*t away, me who gets the birthday gifts, me who makes dinner and does the laundry… me, Me, ME… In this episode I talk about the stereotypical gender roles from generations before u…
 
“Spoil my child? No, I don’t want to do that!” I hear you say. However, after to listening to this, I hope you will all S.P.O.I.L your child… it’s certainly something we should all be doing more of. According to my guest Dr. Meghan Owenz, it is critical that we adopt her S.P.O.I.L secrets. In this episode she shares all and, boy oh boy, did we ever…
 
You nicely and sweetly ask your son or daughter to put their phones down and you are met with resistance, rudeness, the eye roll, a shoulder shrug and ignored. Boom. You are ignited and triggered and believe that it is your child who triggered you, yes? THIS is the misunderstanding. I know…. you want to blame your child for triggering you so badly,…
 
Do you sometimes let your kids have a sip of your wine or beer? Seems pretty innocuous right? Well…… maybe not.

I have been waiting for this moment for a long time. One where I could let you all hear what parent coaching looks like. However, to do this, I needed someone who was okay with the whole world hearing her story. I’d like to introduce you to and welcome Michelle. I am quite sure Michelle sharing her story here will help you (and thousands of parents…
 
It can seem so much easier to point our fingers at our kids, “blame” them for their behavior and expect them to change but don’t be fooled… It may appear to be easier, but I can assure you that it’s not. In this episode, I explain why and what you might try doing instead. Tune in… IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN JOINING ME FOR THE NEXT NEW GROUP COACHING …

Knowing that your teenager needs some support and not being able to give it can be so hard. So what do you do? What do you say? How can you “make” them listen to you or get the support you know they need?

Have you ever really thought about, and put into words, what it is you do, or your child needs you to do, to help him/her thrive? It’s an interesting thing to give some thought to. And then, of course, make sure you put them into action. All of the things I note here are important, however, one of them is more important than the others and in doing…

I recently came across a documentary that really opened my eyes. And here I was thinking I was in the know regarding what kids today are doing online. How wrong was I! One thing is for sure: I’m very glad I stumbled across this documentary because it has and will allow me to have more conversations with my kids and in doing so, help educate and gui…
 
As the grand finale to the book club series I recently put out on The Screen Strong Solution by Melanie Hempe (episodes 471 – 480), I had the pleasure of speaking to her son, Adam Brooker, on his journey with a serious gaming addiction.

Parents are always asking me for the “take-away” and how I wish it were only that easy. The problem with looking for the “quick fix” or take-away is that we go to the goal, to what we want or would prefer, and in doing so, completely miss the journey which is where all the learning is. In part 2 of this 3-part mini-series, I chat about this and wha…
 
It’s all too easy to look back on the shitshow that 2020 was and blame Covid for everything, but…. there’s too much to learn from it all to simply ignore the bad. There’s uncertainty, unforgettable, unprecedented, unimaginable, unpredictable: all rich for the pickings. When we ignore the bad and don’t look deeper, we can often miss all that was and…
 
I am so excited to have Melanie Hempe (the author of The Screen Strong Solution) with me on the show today.

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN JOINING ME FOR THE NEW GRO…
 
I think many parents are in denial as to how addicted their kids actually are to their online games and social media accounts. I mean who wants to admit to that? And anyway, how do you know? In this episode, I share some diagnostic criteria (Douglas Gentile, PhD, Iowa State University) for video game and social media dependency and 4 levels of gami…
 
I don’t think that there has ever been a more important time in our lifetime to strengthen the connection we have with our kids than now. Children today are not only turning to their peers as their main influence but are turning more to their devices thus leaving the parent’s role tenuous, less influential and more and more redundant. This is dange…
 
Mom: “Will you please get off your phone NOW!” Child: “But there is nothing to do…” Mom: “There’s lots to do, you could...” Child: “That’s boring.” Sound familiar? I’m sure it does, but here’s the deal. It is VITAL that your kids find other things to do in their lives besides being on their devices. If you are at your wit’s end and stuck, tune in b…
 
I want to ask you if you want your child to be successful? Duh, of course you do. Now I’m going to ask you this: is your child acquiring the life skills they need to be successful? Grit, determination, perseverance, tolerating frustration, delaying gratification, digging deep, organizing, time management, planning, communicating, collaborating…. In…
 
This is without doubt the hardest part of the journey to getting your kids off their phones. It will require everything you have in you and MORE – grit, energy, determination, commitment, compassion, and dealing with pushback like you have never seen before but…. it will be worth it.

Old habits die hard and breaking them requires effort, dedication and commitment. In the episode today I share with you how you can start to break the old habits and routines and thus trigger change without even trying.

Most parents would agree that the greatest challenge they face today is trying to get their kids off their phones. When I say we can’t afford to lose sight of the problem, what I mean by this is that the greater problem is actually what our kids are not doing as a result of being lost in the virtual world. The ramifications of this are ENORMOUS in …

It’s been too long since I did a Podcast Book Club Series and what better a time than now. Given that we are going into the holiday period and we have no doubt had the kids at home for a while now and they are most probably spending WAY TOOO MUCH TIME ON THEIR PHONES, I am going to dive into a fantastic little book called “The Screen Strong Solutio…
 
I have talked about this a LOT on the show and I’ll no doubt talk about it again because it is so important. If we hope to be able to lead, guide and influence our kids and meet their needs, we simply cannot afford to be parenting from FEAR. Why? Because when we are fearful, we lose our ability to access the very skills we need - to get the clarity…
 
Do you want to know why it is so hard to be compassionate towards your child when their behavior has blindsided you? The answer lies in YOU. I want to ask you how compassionate are you with yourself?
