"I Won't Be Your Friend Anymore!"
Hearing a parent's anger to their son using friendship as leverage or manipulation to get what they wanted, I wanted to draw your attention to a theme I've often mentioned: our children model the behaviour they see on a consistent basis. In this podcast I explain how I brought it to the parent's attention that the child was simply modelling the behaviour he'd experienced at home. I hope this acts as a timely reminder that our children absorb all they experience and then replicate it at their own level.

Calming A Hysterical Child
I know how so many of you struggle with calming down an upset or angry child, and in this episode I wanted to share a technique that I've used successfully with my son to help him go from meltdown to calm in three minutes. The follow up to this has been that his behaviour has improved and I believe that as a result of this exercise his trust in me is stronger. As ever, I hope you can get some value and benefit from this useful technique

Negative Attention and Siblings
In this podcast I wanted to share some of my frustrations with parenting two boys. In particular about how they play together or, more importantly, how I've dealt with the aggression and fighting that happens when good play turns bad. It's very much a snapshot and very much what I would call a work in progress, nevertheless my hope is that you get some benefit or at least find it entertaining! Hit me up on Twitter and let me know!

When My Son Stood Up to the Bully
I wanted to share this episode from my parenting life because I feel it reflects common parenting thoughts about bullying. I get really honest about how it felt and how I handled it with my son. This is more acknowledging that we all have parenting challenges and that none of us are immune than advice or guidance. Raw and unedited, welcome to my world.

This is solely for parents, for those of you who find their children upset, who are suffering from anxiety and worry over their tests. I wanted to share one of the ways I've successfully reduced stress, anxiety and even fears with children, including my own.

Why Gratitude And Appreciation Are More Than Just Fluff Words
It's time we really make an effort to appreciate and celebrate what we ARE achieving and quieten down the voices that want to keep on reminding us of our failures. And reminding ourselves of what we can appreciate and celebrate is more than just to make us feel happy in the moment but designed to re-code our minds to be creative, to find answers and look for solutions to problems.

Making Failure Louder
I wanted to take a moment to underline what I believe is increasingly the important skill children need to acquire. And that's about failure. We speak often about remaining positive and continue with our head up rather than chin down. However over recent years this has changed to giving praise at every and any opportunity. But is this failing our children? Because we are insulating them from the prerequisite of life, which is failure. As we enter that part of the school year of tests and exams, I hope this is useful reminder that success is all the more richer when we have failed a few times. Enjoy

A Very British Rant: Your Screen Time is Bad for Your Child
I really wanted to share my thesis on how our screen time impacts our children. It's something that I've mentioned in the past but felt it was worth returning for the benefit of new listeners to the podcast. It's easy to slip into the habit of giving our child half our attention and the other half to our phones. And there'll be those of you who need to hear this as a reminder about noticing when the phone takes more of our attention than our child, and the harmful effects it can have.

Talk at Leeds Academy | Mar '18
In this talk I gave at Leeds Academy, I really made a point to focus on the positive nature of failure. In particular how important it is to success. It's easy to get motivated or inspired, but what I wanted to deliver in this talk was a real understanding that failure is the entry level to success. I wanted them to think about failure as the only way through to success, because if we accept failure as the only route then it loses its fear, we are free to make mistakes and pursue our passions. I also gave them a couple of practical techniques in reducing and removing stress and anxiety particularly in the face of upcoming exams. Hope you get a lot from this podcast

Reflections on Being the Eldest Child
Today I wanted to set a reminder to myself but also share with you something we often forget especially if we are the first or eldest child. As parents our first child is the one we learned the most from. They are pushing against our knowledge and setting new territory. This can mean that, sometimes, they get the brunt of our worries and fears, leaving siblings the path that a little easier to walk down. So in this podcast I share some tips of how I'm going to acknowledge this with my son, in an attempt to soften the first-child syndrome. Enjoy

Do We Get in The Way of Our Kid's Confidence?
Many of us want our children to thrive and stand resilient and resourceful as they grow up. However while we want those things, sometimes we miss that we get in their way when they are developing those skills when they are younger. In this podcast, I've tried to explore the idea that the qualities of determination, tenacity and resourcefulness are present and visible even if they are demonstrated as strong-willed, defiance or carelessness. If anything I hope you take away the idea that before we scold or reprimand, let's check that we aren't knocking the very things we value.

Seeing Life Through Our Child's Eyes
It can be really easy to forget what life is like on the other side of the school fence. We hope that they are forming healthy and positive relationships. But when they are not, when we find they are having challenges, we need to take a step back and look at it through their eyes. And actually realise what they are going through rather than download all our suggestions. So check out this podcast out and see if you can relate to it and see whether there’s something that can help you

Helping Your Child Manage Anger
I wanted to share an example of how I manage when my son struggles with his frustration and anger. I really want to give you a clear tactic on how to approach it. But also explain how useful it is to take a step back when confronted with disruptive behaviour from your child. I hope you get something very real and very practical that actually will help when you're faced with these challenges. Enjoy

Talk at Hornsey School for Girls | Mar '18
In this brief talk I gave in Hornsey, I really tried to give the students some practical and effective exercises in reducing stress.

A Bad Moment Doesn't Make for a Bad Day
In this podcast I discuss how we need not turn a bad moment into a bad day. It's amazingly easy to exaggerate a couple of bad moments and balloon them into a bad day. We're parents. We will make mistakes. It's all about acknowledging that and then focusing back on making the parenting 'wins' happen. If nothing else I hope you get a useful reminder to be a little more compassionate to yourself

Better Ways to Talk with your Child
When we ask better questions. When we try to access a child’s information in a variety of ways rather than one fixed way, we not only get the information we're after but we also stop them judging themselves a s stupid. In fact we are strengthening their confidence and strengthening self-esteem, helping them realise their potential. I really want you to pay attention to this episode as it has some real gold how how and why we need to find a variety of ways to talk with our children.

Language, Vocabulary and. Children
Today I wanted to share my thoughts on language acquisition and development with children. And I suppose in some ways this is what people refer to as dumbing down. And it really relates to what I think is the importance of parents or causing more natural language, rather than simplifying our words for our children. I'm not talking about swallowing a dictionary, what I am saying is why us using are more natural language becomes the template for your own child to express themselves.
07:36

Taking a Step Back
With hectic lives, children can seem to grow up quickly. Sometimes, I feel, we miss some of that richness. In this podcast I'm saying it's ok to not be fully engaged - but not completely disengaged - with what your child is doing. We can watch, notice and observe that unique and special time where we see that our children are growing up. Enjoy

Don’t Meet a Problem With a Problem
I wanted to talk about an Instagram post I put up a few days ago as I think it's something worth just understanding a bit further. I have witnessed a little too often parents who are replying to their children with another problem. It really has highlighted how important it is to notice that how we respond to situations becomes a template for how are child will respond in the future. Here I give some suggestions and alternative responses that might be helpful when feeling overwhelmed and stressed. Hope you find this helpful

Everything Matters, to a Child
I want to share with you my kind of thesis, belief or approach to my parenting or at least the parent I consistently try to be. And it’s about doing or going that little extra for our children. Life can be challenging and difficult at times one of the things I really try to do aim to do is to show up, deliver and be present to my children’s needs. And that really informs the choices I make. In this podcast I talk about how I go about that and why. I really hope you get some benefit from it. Enjoy

Out of their Comfort Zone
In today’s podcast I discuss a very simple but important step in leaping forward your child’s confidence and self esteem.

What’s on Students’ Minds
I felt it was useful to try and cover some of the kind of key themes of been coming out of the Q&A sessions I’ve been doing at school as I can I find it very fascinating and I hope you will too. Much of the theme is about having challenging conversations with parents. Particularly around the pressure of exam expectations and being honest with their parents about how they don’t know what they want to do in the future. I’ve tried to really bring for you a condensed version of some of the key themes that come out from the Q&A sessions and hope that gives you an interesting insight into what I’m experiencing I’m at schools. Don’t forget to hit me up on Twitter and let me know your thoughts

Getting Your Child to Try
In this podcast I talk about the decision to help my son try new things more often. There is something very powerful in helping our children experiment and try new things and try new activities that only helps them understand themselves more. Only helps them understand what they do like and don’t like. And I really think this so much benefit as parents to gently nudge our children into discovery. And for me this podcast is so important about how in later life we can make decisions which are based on our own self awareness and I think that’s a massive gift we can give our children. I really hope you enjoy this podcast

Christmas, Hugs and Consent
It’s a bit of a raw podcast, but covers a very important subject around this time of year regarding hugs and consent. There was conversations recently regarding forcing children to show affection when they don’t want to. And I wanted to highlight the connections between that and a child’s consent and respecting their wishes as well as your own personal space. This may only be for a few of you but I hope you get some useful understanding from it.

Better Bonds With Our Children
As the holiday season seems to be upon us now, I share just a little way of how I increase the bond and connection with my children.

The Death of Presenteeism
Travelling in to London for a four days coaching meetings, I wanted to grab these thoughts on how we can bring an end to the culture of presentism either in your team or in the company. The ‘first in, last out’ thinking can have a challenging effect at home, so what might we do to address it?

Bring an End to Nightmares
I thought it’d be really useful to share two powerful techniques to defeat your child’s nightmares. Children have powerful visual imaginations and can come up with some scary scenarios but there are techniques and methods that can really make an impact and help them defeat the nightmares and put an end to the bad dreams. There’s great practical advise here - I hope you enjoy it.

I Don’t Laugh at my Kids Jokes
Why I Don’t Laugh at my Kids’ Bad Jokes | This is a bit of a raw podcast in as much as I am riffing on the idea of overpraising. And it starts with why I don’t laugh at my kids’ bad jokes. It’s not about being harsh, it’s about finding ways to help them improve the joke. Because I’m not convinced that laughing at the bad joke is going to be good for them in the long term. Same goes for trophies of 8th place finishers. Hit me up on Twitter and let me know what you think

Parents: Ask Better Questions
In this podcast I give you some examples to help your child recall memories, come up with answers and break the cycle of “I don’t know”. Even at a relatively young age, language makes such an impact on how our children respond to us. The simplest change in how we ask and talk with our children can make a real difference and improve communication.

Helping a Challenging Teenager
I wanted to share with you some real valuable points on how to help your challenging teen. These I believe are the foundations of how we support, understand and help our teenagers when their cauldron of emotions boils over. Few of them are easy to do, but are vital to turnaround toxic behaviour. Hope you get a lot from this one. Hit me up in Twitter at @benjacksoncoach and let me know!

Being your Kid’s Biggest Fan
I touch on briefly the ways we can not only say we our kid’s biggest fan and support but really act that we are. While we often say that we support and love our child, it’s important to demonstrate and show them that we are their biggest advocates and strongest supporters. Hope you get something interesting from this!

Kids and the Power of Apology
It can feel that we always need to be a perfect parent, but that leaves a lot of pressure on ourselves and set up an unrealistic model for our children.
