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!

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?

Today’s episode is all about storytelling, and in it I get to share about a live storytelling event that 20-time winner of the Husband of the Year award, Benjamin Kolp, and I did just a few nights ago!
Here are two stories – really, two halves of the same story – for your viewing pleasure:
Today, I share the story of my own frightening and persistent question, a real biggie which brought with it a lot of parental guilt – but yet this question simply wouldn’t leave me alone…
I share how I successfully addressed it, and I introduce a minicourse that can help you address it, too.

It’s agonizing to watch your child go through the social stuff of life.
You know what I’m talking about:
When you spend your days stopping angry sibling fights, as if you were a boxing referee.
When one of them gets made fun of at school – or worse, bullied.
When they get broken up with by a friend.
When they have a crush on a fellow eight-year-old and say to you “who could love a face like this?”
If your heart breaks or you feel shellshocked when something like this happens, you are not alone.
I’m offering a new approach that gives you the power to support your child, set aside your inner demons, and be happier in your parenting.
