Welcome Back No-Problem Parents!

Do you notice yourself, or someone you love:

  • Becoming frequently upset?
  • Wishing to have more control and quit saying hurtful words or actions?
  • Despite doing your/their best to be calm, continuing to have outbursts?
  • Experiencing anger as a rapidly rising torrent of emotion?
  • Targeting hurtful words or actions at others before even realizing you’re/they’re angry?
  • Struggling to comprise without getting angry?
  • Becoming violent when consuming alcohol?

Richard Chandler, MA, LPC is a psychotherapist who specializes in relationship counseling. He does a great deal of couples counseling and often helps parents to utilize more optimal parenting protocols to help their children and to also reduce stress in their relationship with each other.

Richard's approach to anger management counseling is different than traditional anger management programs. "I seek to understand your unique anger pattern, interrupt that pattern, and even replace your habit with a new way of responding tailored to you".

EP. 63 Every Behavior is Communication! Get to the Heart of Behavior Problems (ages 3 - 21) with Special Guest Kristan Weisdack

EP. 63 Every Behavior is Communication! Get to the Heart of Behavior Problems (ages 3 - 21) with Special Guest Kristan Weisdack

May 12, 2022

Welcome Back No-Problem Parents!

Every Behavior is Communication! It can be tough to deal with behaviors. 

Perhaps your child is biting, hitting, kicking, spinning, running into walls or climbing on everything. Maybe as they've grown their risk-taking behaviors are increasing, their attention span is decreasing or maybe they just don't seem to have any ambition to try new things and their self esteem is suffering?

Step one of No-Problem Parenting is to "Seek first to Understand "why my child is behaving the way they are" and why am I, the parent, responding or reacting the way "I am?"

Well today we're gonna do just that.  My guest Kristan Weisdack is going to help you get to the heart of the "problem" that you've otherwise considered a mis-behavior.

Kristan Weisdack is the Founder and CEO of BehaviorWorx of Southwestern PA. Her company offers outpatient (virtually and in-person) services as well as in-person and virtual training for parents and professionals that are often frustrated and overwhelmed when navigating behavior issues with their child or learner, particularly those with autism. Kristan’s personal and professional experience has helped her understand the causes of behavior are often rooted in nutrition, allergies, undetected vision issues, and problems that occur early on in life. This holistic approach to behavior is incorporated into every facet of what she and her team do to help others understand and navigate behavior successfully.

Are you a parent of a child with autism, ADHD, or behavioral issues who is frustrated with your current service provider?

Are you feeling overwhelmed with the number of services your child is receiving?

Do you feel discouraged because your child has reached a plateau, but you know they have so much more potential?

 

Behavior Worx is a great resource for helping you get to the root of your child's behavior problems!

EP. 61 Overcoming Trauma, Divorce AND Loss; INCLUDING self-loss. You don’t have to bear 100% of the guilt and shame. with Special Guest Angie Monko & dedicated to Maddie

May 5, 2022

Welcome Back, No-Problem Parents!

This is our 3rd episode in a week!  We are honoring all Moms and Mother figures this week in celebration of Mother's Day. 

Be sure to check out Episode 60 with guest Beth Miller, understanding your marriage and momma triggers, and yesterday's BONUS episode for a chance to win one of three Mother's Day gifts.

Are you feeling lost and alone during or since your divorce?

Are you afraid that the divorce will irreparably damage yourself and/or your kids?

  • Do you feel too scared or hurt to make decisions and build a new chapter?

  • Are you feeling stuck in guilt and/or shame as a result of the divorce?

Divorce is a trauma which can make you feel frozen, unable to move. I know how you feel, and you aren't alone. 
Angie is here to support you through this valley of fear and the unknown. 

Today's episode is for those of you moms who have experienced trauma in your marriage resulting in divorce and loss.

Mother's Day is often thought of as a happy day to celebrate moms, but for many moms, the day stirs up mixed emotions of sadness and loss whether you are grieving the loss of your relationship, loss of a child, or loss of your own mother.

Through her journey Angie learned that the negative impact of divorce on young children is very common.  They have a 25-30% greater chance of depression, anxiety, declining grades, drug and alcohol abuse, and self-defeating behaviors such as acting out with anger and failure to thrive. The long-term mental and emotional effects of divorce remain with children, often a minimum of two decades and even for a lifetime. And, there is hope, we can deal with and overcome this pain in ourselves and for our children.

After her painful divorce experience, Angie vowed to help as many women and children as possible to avoid what she and her daughter experienced.

Angie Monko is the owner of Harmony Harbor Coaching since 2008 and a Conscious Women’s Divorce & Loss Coach. She guides women to heal from divorce, loss of a loved one, and loss of self so they can move forward stronger and happier into their next chapter.

Angie has certifications in Emotional Freedom Techniques, Hypnosis and The Healing Codes and is well-versed in Donna Eden energy medicine, all designed to heal the heart and promote healthy habits of thought and action.

Angie and I had met through a mutual coach and I knew alot of her story, but you will hear in this conversation, that there was so much more about Angie's story that I didn't know.

So how did Mothers Day start?  You might be surprised to learn that it wasn’t simply to treat Moms to a day off or give them a special card or gift.  The creation of a national Mother's Day is primarily attributed to three women: Ann Reeves Jarvis, Julia Ward Howe, and Ann's daughter, Anna M. Jarvis, who championed efforts toward better health, welfare, peace, and love. It essentially began as a women’s movement to better the lives of other Americans. Listen in, it's a great story of how the day finally came to be and how it almost ended.

 

For all the moms listening, Happy Mothers Day.  I hope you are able to celebrate yourself today whether that means enjoying your children and doing something fun with them, or spending time with your friends or volunteering or even spending some time alone, relaxing and unwinding.  Whatever your plans, or lack thereof, I hope you are able to acknowledge yourself and give yourself some grace and understanding.

 

How will you spend your Mothers Day?  Share what you did in the comments of this episode.  I’d love to hear how you honoring yourself, your own mother or the mother figures in your life.

EP. 59 Emotional Intelligence Builds Self Esteem; Wanting to be your kids friend is causing our kids to be anxious & ashamed. with Special Guest Dr. J.J.Kelly

EP. 59 Emotional Intelligence Builds Self Esteem; Wanting to be your kids friend is causing our kids to be anxious & ashamed. with Special Guest Dr. J.J.Kelly

April 28, 2022

Welcome Back No-Problem Parents!

Do you have a tween or teen that is struggling with;

Ongoing conflicts in relationships

• Intense and rapid mood changes

• Inability to relax

• Trouble recognizing choice

• Holding in anger, then “blowing up” at others

• Impulsive or reactive decisions they often regret

• Self-medicating with substances, e.g., food, sugar, alcohol,

"busy-ness", spending, etc.

• Feeling overwhelmed

• Avoiding responsibilities, people, or events

• “Numbing out” in response to fear, anger, etc?

Are you worried, nervous around them, unsure what to do or how to talk to your teen?  Are you trying to be your child's friend in an effort to be relatable or smooth things over enough to have a good day?  Guess what? Your uncertainty, your "being nice" may actually be causing our kids to be anxious and ashamed.

Listen in to the conversation about how we need to talk with our teens as much (or more)

about our thoughts as we do our feelings. 

Meet Dr. J.J. Kelly, of Unorthodocs, Inc.

"After 16 years of passionately working in the current system of the mental health profession and seeing the systemic sexism, racism, homophobia, ableism, narcissism and elitism…I wanted nothing more than to burn it all down. Then I decided to redirect my outrage into building something new based on love, laughter, and teaching emotional intelligence – because I believe that global healing is achieved by teaching people the skills to like themselves, or as I always say….Happy people act right."

Dr. J.J. offers courses through her Get Real Program, an emotional skills training program based on Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). DBT was developed by Dr. Marsha Linehan and combines Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Zen Mindfulness skills from Thich Nhat Hahn’s book, The Miracle of Mindfulness.

"DBT is The Sh**, and I make learning a complex set of concepts and skills fun and funny. Yer gonna laugh yourself right into healthy…” – Dr. Kelly

Listen in as Dr. J.J. Kelly shares that Emotional Intelligence is key to building self-esteem, Family Values are more important than having a "friendship" with your child and why humor is SO important to our mental health! 

"Global healing is achieved by teaching people the skills to like themselves. The Get Real Program created by licensed clinical psychologist Dr. J.J. Kelly does just that."

During our conversation I share the Make it Right Technique which can be found here: 

The Make It Right Technique for No-Problem Parents

Thank You Dr. Kelly for the fun conversation and sharing your authentic self and perspective.  I appreciate your candidness and genuine care for teenagers.  

Hugs & High Fives,

Jaci

Ep. 58 Self-Love Parenting; Taking care of yourself before your kids tell you to! with Special Guest Reverand Betsy Scott

Ep. 58 Self-Love Parenting; Taking care of yourself before your kids tell you to! with Special Guest Reverand Betsy Scott

April 26, 2022

Welcome Back No-Problem Parents!

Have your kids said things like "you just want everyone to think you're a perfect parent and believe we have a perfect family." Maybe they're telling you to back off or that they're sick of you always telling them what to do.

Do you feel as though you are sacrificing so much for your kids and they don't seem grateful?

In today's episode, my special guest Reverend Betsy Scott, author, coach, minister, grandmother and eventual Self-Love Parent shares how Growing up as a "good girl" caused her to parent from ego rather than love. Her children discovered her lack of self-love even before she did and called her on it.

In her recently published book, JOURNEY TO SAFE HARBOR, a three generational memoir that narrates her family history giving different paradigms of parenting coming to the conclusion that only when one learns self love can one truly love another. She is an ordained interfaith minister and clinical social worker with many years of experience and from the book she's created Journey to Safe Harbor courses and coaching..

 

The book covers three generations of family where the personal and emotional sacrifices made in the name of mission, commitment and duty, aiming ‘to do good in the world’, ended with unintended tragic consequences for their children. It is about a professional family, educated, religious and idealistic, but did they understand love? In this book, Scott shares a narrative of her collected records, her experiences, and her journey. She toggles between Tenants Harbor, India and Chicago to show the interweaving of three eras and how they resulted in the family’s fragmentation and great tragedy.  The memoir chronicles the journey of healing through the ups and downs of life resulting in reconnecting with her family and the community.

Betsy lives with her husband in New York and Maine and together they have four children and eight grandchildren.

Welcome Back No-Problem Parents!

Every parent wants to enjoy spending time with their kids, but how is it possible when yours are driving you up the bloody wall? Preparing kids with the expectations, defining what is going to happen before they go to a new place or experience something new, and giving them the opportunity to ask questions allows you, the parent to be proactive and decreases the odds that you will lose your sh** with your kids.

AND.... it helps you create trust, safety, and understanding in your relationship with your kids when they're little which sets a solid foundation for them as they grow.

Meet Allana Robinson, Parenting Coach and CEO of Uncommon Sense Parenting, as well as a Registered Early Childhood Educator, Developmental Specialist, Mom of two, and military wife.
