9/2/17 Monthly Newsletter: Handling Emotional Upsets

Toddlers aren’t the only ones who have emotional upsets. A big misconception I hear on a regular basis is that parents don’t need to talk about tantrums and emotional upsets because they don’t have a toddler anymore. “We’re past that phase.” This means that their kids are probably no longer throwing themselves on the floor Read More

8/2/17 Monthly Newsletter: Attachment (not parenting), Membership Give-Away and Sale, Cruise Retreat in January

It’s about responsiveness as a parent. For example, a baby learning to crawl may explore on Read More

I love the conversations I’m sharing with you this week.

I thought he needed discipline and punishment, but I was missing that he was showing me, through his behaviors, how he was feeling and what he needed. He didn’t know how else to express what he was feeling Read More
