Do you get frustrated by your child’s behavior? Do your children push your buttons? Do you lose your cool more often than you’d like? It could be hard to remain calm and respond calmly when we are experiencing stress and overwhelm in our life. As much as we would like to keep our cool, sometimes we just lose it. No worries. It happens to all of us. We are human. How do you repair is not only important in those moments when rupture occurs but it’s also a valuable lesson for our children.
Keeping your cool when your kids push your buttons is the June monthly special episode. I’m joined by a new colleague to co-host this episode. The host of the Your Parenting Mojo podcast, Jen is here to offer some insights and practical tips and some what controversial views.
We have 3 segments:
- Examples from Our Homes
- What’s Up with You? Answering listener parenting questions
- Favorite Finds
- To install Snapchat or NOT for a young child?
- The dirty truth (shocking research!) about potty training
- Sleep time battles? Child takes more than 2 hours to fall asleep?
- Should you lay down with your child?
- Can your young child set her own bed time?
- How stress can affect your child’s sleep
- Does your child think that you love her sibling more?
About my guest
Jen Lumanlan is the parent of an almost four-year-old who realized that she had no parenting intuition whatsoever but great research skills, and she decided to bridge that gap by getting a Master’s in Psychology and later followed up with a Master’s in Education. Along the way she started a podcast called Your Parenting Mojo so she could share what she was learning with others – with over sixty episodes released, the show is a reference guide for parents of toddlers and preschoolers based on scientific research and the principles of respectful parenting.
