this wonderful conversation with Charlie Hoehn, dad, podcaster, person who helps people publish books, and (most important for our conversation today) author.
Charlie’s book, Play It Away, shares his experience with soul-sucking anxiety, and the simple cure he found.
The thing about this cure is, it’s something humans all do naturally, and it’s as important to us as sleep.
But yet we often grow up and forget how important it is; the lack of this crucial element in Charlie’s life is what caused his terrible anxiety.
If you’re feeling anxious, you are going to love our conversation.
And if you’re not feeling anxious, you’ll still love it because it will help you see the importance of this element in your child’s life.

Do you find that giving a time out
to your young child is an effective way to change that child’s behavior?
Maybe you find, as one coaching client of mine does, that timeouts become “a battle of wills” and aren’t effective at all.
Maybe your young child runs away from the timeout chair, giggling and leaving you super frustrated…
If so, this is the show for you because today I’m teaching how to effectively discipline your young child!

For a long time, the podcast was the tool.
Then I wrote Positive Discipline Ninja Tactics – and we had 2 tools.
And now, a little more than three years in, we’ve got a multitude of tools for parenting and happy family time…
Today’s episode is a discussion of some of the best tools, a description of how parents are changing their families’ lives by utilizing these tools, and a roadmap so that you know where to find the exact We Turned Out Okay tools you need!
This episode came up because, at the beginning of 2018, a new listener to We Turned Out Okay got in touch with me, and she shared that she had a bad experience listening to the show: to her, listening felt as if I’d taken her to a party where I knew everyone – and she knew no one.
I really took that critique to heart. I’ve been working ever since to be sure that everything I do makes you, the listener, feel welcomed and included, and that’s how we ended up where we are.
The tools I talk about in this episode:

This episode, we focus on a serious issue.
It’s one you may have been wondering about, but not known what to do about – or even if it was a big deal at all:
Does tablet or smartphone use contribute to a child’s behavior problems?
We live in this world, which is absolutely filled with tech. The tech doesn’t appear to be going anywhere fast… So what’s the answer?
Does tablet use contribute to behavior problems?
