Episode 258: New Poll Says Parents Are Killing Their Kids' Life Skills
If you are a regular listener of my podcast you will know that I am dead against parents doing things for their children that they are perfectly capable of doing for themselves. The negative effects of doing so are far reaching and disastrous for our children and we are seeing this play out in the young adults "we" have collectively, from over-parenting,  "created". Tune in and take note so you don't rob your kids of the capacity to develop the life skills and competencies they need and you desperately want them to have.  The Price Of Privilege by Madeline Levine can be found here: https://amzn.to/2P3lATj How To Raise An Adult by Julie Lythcott-Haims can be found here: https://amzn.to/2UtGEZe Follow Me Online Here: Instagram: https://instagram.com/louiseclarke.ypp Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.ca/louiseclarkeyourparentingpartn/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/yourparentingpartner/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/YPPartner You Tube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqdQ1_fC72bKutwr5EfavQA FB Parent Support Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/ParentingInTheThickOfIt/ Podcast: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/parenting-in-the-thick-of-it-with-louise-clarke/id1358492950 Parenting In The Thick Of It Family Organizer: https://parentinginthethickofit.com/ Medium: https://medium.com/@mlouiseclarke iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/parenting-in-the-thick-of-it-with-louise-clarke/id1358492950 Website: https://yourparentingpartner.com/ Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/3pZfkJuOlQNohr4EqA0ivR

Episode 257: "SUCCESS" Is Never A Straight Line!
What is your definition of success? And what is your definition of success in the context of your children? Madeline Levine, a well known Psychologist and NY times best selling author believes that the modern day definition of success is skewed and that the pressures of this skewed definition are wreaking havoc on the mental health of our children.  She says that "parents have to face the incongruity between their experience and their attitude". Very few of us achieved "success" by going from A, to B, to C in a straight line yet our definition of success for our children demands that they have to. Tune in...

In this episode I share with you a story involving my son, team selections, his emotions and how he and I dealt with them and the situation. Throughout it all I kept saying to myself "How can I help him learn from this?" and it was through me doing this, remaining compassionate and curious, and being aware of when I was slipping into fear that we got through it in the best way possible.

Episode 254: Ready For A Screen Detox? (ADHD)
Research is showing that the symptoms of too much screen time on a child's brain are very, very similar to those of ADHD. If a screen detox is proving to significantly relieve such symptoms, perhaps children with ADHD would respond well to it too? There is one well-known Child Psychiatrist who will not test a kid for ADHD until the kid has undergone a screen detox. When I read this, I thought WOW - that's super interesting! Tune in...

Episode 252: The On-going Battles With Screen Time - How Much Is Enough Anyway?
How much is enough? How much is too much? Those are the million dollar questions and ones to which there is no one answer! I always like to look at screen time not so much as time spent on screens but as time lost to real time because framing it this way helps me see when enough is enough and when a limit needs to be set.

Episode 251: Arghhhhh... My Child Is Not Giving Me What I need!
Do you expect your child to meet your needs? Do you think your child can meet your needs? Is it fair to presume that your child should meet your needs? Who can meet your needs? Interesting questions huh! When we "expect" or think that someone else can meet our needs, we always run the risk of those needs not being met. Let me explain. Last Saturday I desperately needed my daughter to "meet" my needs but had she met my needs, she wouldn't have met her own! What did I do? Tune in and tap into one of the biggest lessons we need to learn as moms, parents, human beings: Only you can meet your own needs.

Episode 247: Are You Raising A Child or An Adult?
A couple of months ago I recorded episode # 211 on The Parenting In The Thick Of It Show titled: “Helicopter Or Parachute Parent?” which was sparked by this quote: “I think that instead of helicoptering our kids, we should be strapping some parachutes on their backs made out of things like common sense, kindness and courage. Then I think we should teach them to jump.” by Julie Lythcott-Haims. Suffice to say that it has been one of my most downloaded episodes, so… what better way to give you more of what you want than to interview the author of the quote! In this interview, New York Times bestselling author of "How To Raise An Adult", Julie Lythcott-Haims gives you so much actionable advice to help you break free of the over-parenting trap (one which we all fall into - myself included) and prepare your kid for success.

This episode was sparked by an article I read on the correlation between irregular bedtime routines and behavior challenges which was based on a study of 10,000 kids, aged 3 - 7 years-old, and published in the journal of Pediatrics.

Episode 244: Why Is My Child So Emotionally Expressive & Sensitive? (ADHD)
In Chapter 9 (“Your Emotionally Expressive Child”) of the amazing book “The Gift of ADHD” by Lara Honos-Webb PH.D., she reviews the way in which your child's emotional sensitivity can be seen as a gift. It is well documented and researched that children with ADHD have little emotional control and are prone to emotional outbursts - they wear their hearts on their sleeves for sure! But these very symptoms that you may have come to dread actually represent an amazing gift; emotional sensitivity and intensity. The challenge for parents is to help our kids manage their emotions and deal with them in socially acceptable ways.  In this chapter, the author offers techniques to help you and your child better monitor and manage emotions as they emerge.

The episode today was inspired by a quote by L.R. Knost - "Wait, so you want me to grow into an adult who thinks for myself, acts independently and stands by my choices, but while I'm a child you want me to be submissive, compliant, and pliable? I think we need to talk!". As parents I think we have to be very careful to not send our kids mixed messages and make sure that our own behavior is in alignment with the values and life skills we want to instil in them.

Episode 242: 5-Year-Old's Can Be So Demanding - I Don't Know What To Do!
What do you do when your 5-year-old yells "Quiet time! No one can talk. Quiet time!” whenever you try to have a conversation with your partner - how do you respond? It is important to remind yourself that many of the behaviors that toddlers typically display are, more often than not, age appropriate and par for the course for the age. It doesn't make it any easier to deal with but it does help you feel that you are not alone and there is nothing "wrong" with your toddler. In this episode, I respond to this mom who wrote to me with this challenge and gave her some ideas that she can try to incorporate into her parenting. Whether it is this, or a similar toddler behavior, much of this can be applied to many different challenges because all children need to feel that they are seen, heard, feel that they matter, are worthy and belong.

Episode 241: Consistent Over Casual
As many of you know, I have been dedicating an episode per week to each of Dr. Rebecca Ray's 8 Daily Choices. To date, I have covered: Patience Over Pushing, Authenticity Over Approval, Open-Hearted Over Guarded and today, Consistent Over Casual.  Developing a consistent approach to many things pertaining to my parenting practice has helped me so much, especially when it comes to healthy boundary setting, the way in which I respond to my kids and being true to my word to name a but a few. Join me as I expand on this and discuss the importance of being consistent.    Follow Me Online Here: Instagram: https://instagram.com/louiseclarke.ypp Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.ca/louiseclarkeyourparentingpartn/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/yourparentingpartner/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/YPPartner You Tube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqdQ1_fC72bKutwr5EfavQA FB Parent Support Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/ParentingInTheThickOfIt/ Podcast: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/parenting-in-the-thick-of-it-with-louise-clarke/id1358492950 Parenting In The Thick Of It Family Organizer: https://parentinginthethickofit.com/ Medium: https://medium.com/@mlouiseclarke iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/parenting-in-the-thick-of-it-with-louise-clarke/id1358492950 Website: https://yourparentingpartner.com/ Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/3pZfkJuOlQNohr4EqA0ivR

Episode 240: Meditation On Monday (MOM) for Moms - Moving Beyond The Reaction
Being able to give ourselves a space or buffer between what we experience and our "response" to the experience, in order to move beyond the reaction, is a gift and one for mom's that can buy us out of many potential arguments and battles with out kids. I call it the power of the pause. In that space, being able to tap into our breath to ground and calm us and keep us present and away from fear is a lifeskill I recommend to all the moms I work with in  my parent coaching practice. Over the years, I have honed in on this skill and it saves me time and time again. Curious?

Episode 239: Exuberant Or Hyperactive? (ADHD)
In Chapter 8 (“Your Exuberant Child: Reframing Hyperactivity”) of the amazing book “The Gift of ADHD” by Lara Honos-Webb PH.D., she reviews the way in which the symptoms of hyperactivity can be seen as a valuable resource. Anyone with a child with ADHD knows just how challenging and huge this "H" is. And managing "it" demands a lot of energy from you! The more you can learn to view this surplus of energy as the valuable resource that it is, and help your child develop an awareness for his/her energy, the better. What revs your child's engine up even more than usual and what slows it down are questions you and your child "should" know the answers to. Tune in...   And the most exciting thing of all is that I have just interviewed the author, Dr Lara Honos-Webb for the podcast and will air that episode on Friday 5th April.

Episode 238: Get Out Of Your Head & Into Your Heart With Heidi Dellaire
In this episode, I interviewed Heidi Dellaire, the founder of Love Wide Open. She has just published an AMAZING book called "Roots & Tendrils" - a collection of poetry so raw and emotional with such a pure expression of vulnerability that I doubt there's a parent out there who will not relate deeply to it. There are so many lessons in it and it is oh so good. I sat down to read a couple of poems and 2 hours later, had read the whole thing! In the podcast today, she shares with us many nuggets including an amazing valve analogy she has with regard to taking care of ourselves and ways in which to help adults and children alike become more in touch with their emotions. It was a super inspirational chat and one that I did not want to end - I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Tune in...

Episode 237: What Do you Mean You Don’t Want To Go To College?
In this episode I share with you a conversation I recently had with my 16-year-old daughter about picking school subjects, courses and college requirements. I had to witness what was coming up for me and do what I needed to do so that I could stay present to her needs in the moment and not let my fear sabotage the whole affair. When I shared this with a friend she said “How on earth did you not get triggered by this?” and I said "The short answer - “Meditation!” plus an awareness for what is going on in my head in the moment.

Episode 235: Meditation On Monday (M.O.M) for Moms - Why Is Letting Go Oh So Hard?
Has anyone ever told you to just “let it go”? Or have you found yourself saying “why can’t I just let it go?” And were you able to let it go? In this episode, I discuss just what this means and why it is so hard to do. When we think we need to let go of something, it’s because it no longer serves us or we no longer want it right? But when we no longer want something, we are effectively resisting it and we all know that what we resist persists which is why it makes it so darn hard to let go of. In trying to let it go, we are in fact encouraging it to stay! It seems like a bit of a vicious circle but it doesn’t need to be. There is something you can do and I explain what.

Episode 233: How To Channel & Enhance Your Child’s Emotional Sensitivity & Intuition (ADHD)
In Chapter 7 (“Interpersonal Intuition”) of the amazing book “The Gift of ADHD” by Lara Honos-Webb PH.D, the author discusses how we can channel and enhance our child’s interpersonal intuition and emotional sensitivity into a deep connection with others. It can be very hard for your child to know what else to do other than be “defiant” especially when they have been labeled this for years. How can they not identify with this and find themselves caught in a downward behavioral spiral? Dr Honos-Webb equips you with wonderful exercises which will help your child become aware of their emotions and whose emotions he/she might be picking up on and what to do with them. And the most exciting thing of all is that I will be interviewing Dr Honos-Webb on the podcast in a few weeks.

 In today’s episode, I talk about what Lawnmower parenting is and why this parenting “trend” might be wreaking havoc on our kids. One of the hardest things a parent can face is to have to watch their child trip, fail, come up against obstacles, and face tough challenges. It’s so hard. But what happens when we clear the way for them and effectively eradicate the obstacles and challenges they should and need to face, and solve their problems for them? They fail to develop the very skills that we want them to have: perseverance, confidence, a sense of capability, self-agency, self-efficacy, self-reliance.

Episode 231: When My Child Has A BIG Emotional Outburst I Don’t Know What To Do! It’s Scary
When you can’t control what’s happening in front of you, the only way to deal with it is to first challenge yourself to take full control of yourself. If you find that your child is being controlling, meeting their control with control simply won’t work. When you try to control your crying child, they will not be able to calm down. When you try to control your defiant child, they will ramp up the undesirable behavior. So what do you do? The only way in which we can support our children through their emotional outbursts is by holding the space for them to experience their emotions and in so doing, create an environment where they feel safe. They are after all having the meltdown because they are scared - they don’t know how to tolerate NO, take their turn peacefully, be told what to do and they respond with big heartfelt emotions which then scares us!    Follow Me Online Here: Instagram: https://instagram.com/louiseclarke.ypp Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.ca/louiseclarkeyourparentingpartn/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/yourparentingpartner/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/YPPartner You Tube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqdQ1_fC72bKutwr5EfavQA FB Parent Support Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/ParentingInTheThickOfIt/ Podcast: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/parenting-in-the-thick-of-it-with-louise-clarke/id1358492950 Parenting In The Thick Of It Family Organizer: https://parentinginthethickofit.com/ Medium: https://medium.com/@mlouiseclarke iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/parenting-in-the-thick-of-it-with-louise-clarke/id1358492950 Website: https://yourparentingpartner.com/ Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/3pZfkJuOlQNohr4EqA0ivR

Episode 230: Authenticity Over Approval
When we show up aligned with our values and standing in our truth, we need no approval from the outside because we are being authentic to who it is we are. It is so vital that we role model this to our kiddos so that they can do the same but to do this, we need to help them understand that they have to approve of who it they are and not look to others for approval or try to be someone they are not (particularly important for our teens and tweens and the influence of social media on their developing "identity". This is a delicate balance to achieve when parenting because there are certain things that we have to approve of when it comes to leading and guiding them, but there are also many things that they do not need our approval for. We have to be able to see our kids as being the uniquely spirited individuals they are and let them stand in their own truth. Tune in...

Episode 229: Gratitude For Nature Can Be Deeply Empowering
When is the last time you went outside and sat in Nature with the sole intention of just sitting there? I highly recommend it because it is quite remarkable just what it can do to lift your spirit, motivate and inspire you! Tuning into Nature’s vast silence and stillness is so restorative and grounding. The gratitude I have for the wonder that is Mother Nature is beyond anything else. I have always felt a deep, deep connection to her. As I sat outside today, I felt myself filling up on Nature’s offerings and the more grateful I was, the fuller I became. When I just sit and take in the enormity of it all and realize that I am ONE with all of that, it is one of the most inspiring things I can do. I need to remind myself to do this more than I do and hope that this is a reminder to you to add more of this into your life. It will be richer for it and the impact that it will have on your ability to stay non-reactive and more cool, calm and collected with your kiddos is the cherry on the top!

Episode 228: The Positive Impact Of Time Spent In Nature On Attention (ADHD)
In Chapter 6 (“Showing the Way: Ecological Consciousness) of the amazing book “The Gift of ADHD” by Lara Honos-Webb PH.D, the author discusses how you can use your child’s innate love of Nature as a way in which to tap into his attention and focus building skills. What I love about this book is the author gives practical exercises for you to try with your child, each of them orchestrated to meet the goal of the chapter. Research now strongly indicates and demonstrates the positive impact of time spent in nature on attention in general and ADHD specifically.   Dr Honos-Webb really helps you appreciate the power that the environment can have on your chid’s behaviour and finding ways in which you can create environments that are a good match for your child’s differences and gifts. It is a sad sign of the times when there are public service announcements advocating the health benefits to children for playing outside and recommending a prescribed daily dose of outside time.

When I finally understood the real benefit of chores, not the actual chore itself, but what kids develop within themselves from doing them, I made more of an effort to holding my kids accountable to doing them. It can be all too easy to let the chores slip and just do them ourselves but this does our kids no favours whatsoever.

Episode 225: Patience Over Pushing
In the rush, busyness and chaos of life today, it is all too easy to lose our patience for things including our kids. When we are rushed, frazzled and pushing ourselves to the max, and our kids need us to be patient, they often get a very different thing - impatience and being "pushed" to get from one thing to another. Until we can learn to be more patient with ourselves, and let go of pushing ourselves to do just one more thing, we will not be able to respond to our children in the way they need us to - with patience.

Episode 224: Meditation On Monday (M.O.M) for Moms - What Thoughts Are You Fuelling?
The more I understand about thoughts the more I am able to manage them so they don't control me and sabotage me from being able to be present. When you develop an awareness for your thoughts, you can effectively choose which ones to "follow" and which ones to let go of. The problem is that we are wired to attach to negative thoughts five times more easily than we are to positive ones. And given they create our feelings and our feelings create our actions, being able to let go of the negative thoughts before they create the associated feelings within us is a good thing. Tune in...

Episode 223: ADHD - Creativity Is Fuelled By Daydreaming
Have you ever considered that creative genius or inspiration requires a certain type of openness or spaciness? And precisely the sort of spaciness and openness that your child probably displays. In Chapter 5 of the book, "The Gift Of ADHD", the author Lara Honos-Webb PH.D. discusses the gift of creativity and the other traits that can often accompany it, traits that are typically seen as being negative, traits that kids with ADHD typically possess. Lara Honos-Webb helps the reader reframe these "negative" traits into more positive ones and I have found doing so incredibly valuable in helping me shift my perspective on this when parenting my child who had ADHD.

With the invention of smart phones and the surge in texting, SnapChat and other communication platforms, we have become so accustomed to being able to get almost instant replies that when we don't, it can leave us impatient or prone to worrying unnecessarily. Do you worry when you text your child and they don't reply instantly? Do you expect them to reply to your texts immediately so you know exactly where they are and what they are doing? This can have negative effects on your relationship with them and your child knowing that you trust them. Tune in...

Episode 221: Decoding & Understanding Your Child's Behavior
Parent's are often left reeling at their child's chosen behavior, thinking what on earth just happened? And why? Why on earth did my child do that? Using the iceberg analogy for decoding behavior can be a useful tool for parents and one which I recommend. In other words, get curious as to what might be going on beneath the surface. Your child might be whining, shouting, crying, or being aggressive. These are the surface behaviors, the ones you see, but you have to look beyond this to what might be going on beneath the surface because it is this that usually drives the behavior. Beneath every behavior is an unmet need and it is up to us to be the Chief Inspector of Behavior in order to work out what it might be! Tune in...

We have to uncover and unleash the gifts that will be there that we just can't see because we are all too often, focused on the downsides of the "disorder".

Episode 204: Meditation On Monday (M.O.M) for Moms - How Meditation Bailed Me
In this episode I share with you exactly how my meditation practice bailed me from a potentially hot-mess parenting moment. When I told my friends what happened last Friday evening, they couldn't believe that I held it together. One of them even asked my son if it was true to which he replied: "Yes, she's telling the truth, my mom was totally calm - like she never even raised her voice. I did, but she didn't!!". Tune in... And, if you are a mom looking to cure the chaos, you can now register for The Chaos Cure (until midnight Jan 29, 2019), an online parenting course created by myself and my amazing colleague, Erin Taylor.  More information and registration details can be found here: https://revolutionizinglife.teachable.com/ Follow Me Online Here: Instagram: https://instagram.com/louiseclarke.ypp Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.ca/louiseclarkeyourparentingpartn/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/yourparentingpartner/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/YPPartner You Tube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqdQ1_fC72bKutwr5EfavQA FB Parent Support Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/ParentingInTheThickOfIt/ Podcast: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/parenting-in-the-thick-of-it-with-louise-clarke/id1358492950 Parenting In The Thick Of It Family Organizer: https://parentinginthethickofit.com/ Medium: https://medium.com/@mlouiseclarke iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/parenting-in-the-thick-of-it-with-louise-clarke/id1358492950 Website: https://yourparentingpartner.com/ Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/3pZfkJuOlQNohr4EqA0ivR

Episode 198: 4 Fundamental Things Every Parent Needs To Know: Part 4 of 4
You Have To Learn To Look Beneath The Behavior - Your Child's & Your Own In the first 3 parts in this series, I touched the surface of this and spoke about how we can use the iceberg to highlight the fact that there is always much more going on beneath the surface than meets the eye. As parents we have to learn how to not take our child's "surface" behavior personally so as to not become triggered by it. It is only then that we might stand a chance of being able to keep our cool, not lose our s#*t and therefore be able to meet our child's need (the unmet one which is driving the behavior). For beneath the surface is always an unmet need. Tune in...

It's Not About Your Kids, It's About YOU!

Why is this? It is only by first focusing on yourself, and being attuned to how you are showing up, and knowing how you can control your own behavior in response to your child's that you might be able to tame your reactivity and therefore respond in a way that allows you to meet your child's needs.

When your child's behavior is "out-of-your-control" it can leave you exhausted and at your wits end. In this example I speak specifically to a 6-year-old that screams to be heard. Whatever the behavior is on the "surface", it is essential that we remain curious as to what might be going on beneath the surface to cause it. A child's behavior is like an iceberg - there's always more going on than meets the eye. Tune in as I get curious and offer some ideas for this mom...  And, if you are a mom looking to cure the chaos, you can now register for The Chaos Cure, an online parenting course created by myself and my amazing colleague, Erin Taylor.
