EP 27 - Overcoming Trauma and Despair with Special Guest Angela Legh

EP 27 - Overcoming Trauma and Despair with Special Guest Angela Legh

August 19, 2021

Welcome back to the No Problem Parenting Podcast, where we choose to deal with and overcome the emotional and behavior challenges in our homes. 

Today’s episode is about overcoming trauma and despair. The importance of self-love, and how embracing YOU embracing yourself begins with acknowledging your feelings and tending to them – so that you can create the life you and your children deserve.

My guest today is Angela Legh a survivor of trauma, abuse, fires and a near drowning all of which inspired her to become a writer and advocate for others who have endured tragedy.

She is an author whose mission is to help children thrive in emotional well-being by developing a strong internal emotional strength. Her books include self-help collections, about the power of forgiveness and learning to surrender to life and more recently a fairytale series titled The Bella Santini Chronicles.  

Angela is also a mentor.

While writing The Bella Santini Chronicle’s  Angela realized that she could not help children get in touch with their inner magic without paying attention to the needs of their parents. Helping children thrive in emotional well-being while their parents were overstressed, made it harder for children to navigate their emotions especially through their teenage years. So, Angela began helping adults tap into their inner magic through on online course and one-on-one mentoring.

Angela supports teens and parents by exploring and coaching on complex topics, such as child abandonment, bullying, sibling rivalry, and good vs. evil. Her clients build emotional muscle and set a path of emotional well-being that allows them to navigate the difficult teen years without isolating themselves or even worse, seeing suicide as a solution to their problems.

Suicide is the second leading cause of death for youth ages 10-24. The Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Agency (https://www.samhsa.gov/ )states, the causes of suicide are complex and determined by multiple combinations of factors, such as mental illness, substance abuse, painful losses, exposure to violence, and social isolation. Social isolation significantly increased under the Covid-19 lockdown and the effects still prevalent today.

Angela understands firsthand the pain and despair of trauma, loss and abuse. Her stories and mentorship programs were developed to help children and parents who because of their environment and/or their past, do not feel worthy or that they belong.

Have you been a person that has helped someone find value in themselves?  Maybe you’ve helped a family member, friend or even a complete stranger by simply acknowledging or noticing them? Every day, whether you have experienced a traumatic relationship or not, each one of us has the ability to be kind and intentional with the people around us.

Saying hello to someone you don’t know, striking up a conversation with a classmate that seems shy or reserved or even getting to know the kid that always seems angry or has been tagged as the bully in school.  Sometimes your random act of kindness or compliment affects that person way more than you could ever know. Whether or not you can begin to understand what the person is going through, take the time to get to recognize them.

Like Angela, our friend Mack was one of those people who acknowledged and noticed others too. Even though he didn’t experience pain or abuse like Angela had, from an early age, Mack knew his purpose was to help others and he went out of his way to positively impact all those he met.

Tragically we lost our dear Mack in a car accident just a couple of weeks ago.

 I’m dedicating this episode to Mack and to all of you who take the time to notice, acknowledge and make time for the people in your life, that others don’t. Our world needs more people like Mack. #livelikemack #lovelikemack

My very sincere Thanks to Angela for recording this episode with me even though I wasn’t feeling very up to it that day.  She helped me acknowledge my grief and persevere.

EP 25 - Your Mindset Matters with Special Guest Colleen Biggs

EP 25 - Your Mindset Matters with Special Guest Colleen Biggs

August 10, 2021

Hello Parents! Welcome Back to The No-Problem Parenting Podcast! 

Today we're going to talk about how your Mindset Matters!

Your mindset is a set of beliefs that shape how you make sense of the world and yourself. It influences how you think, feel, and behave in any given situation. 

People with a fixed mindset believe your abilities are fixed traits and that they can't be changed. You may also believe that your talent and intelligence alone leads to success, and effort is not required.

On the flipside, if you have a growth mindset, you believe that your talents and abilities can be developed over time through effort and persistence. People with this mindset believe they can get smarter or more talented if they work at it.

Now of course there are things in life that are out of our control, TODAY we're talking about the things that ARE in our control and what happens when we acknowledge and take ownership of our lives and SHOW UP for ourselves FIRST so that we can be the confident parent and leader our kids crave us to be! 

My guest today was able to shift from the fixed mindset that she was taught early on in life to a growth mindset.

Meet Colleen Biggs

Colleen strives to reach all women through influence to encourage the understanding that in order to be, have, and do anything in life that you desire, you must first Show UP! Colleen survived an early childhood of chaos, loss, and abuse. It was through these trials that she gained the clarity to understand the magnitude of loving others unconditionally and realizing the power of community.

Colleen Biggs is an Award-Winning Peak Performance Consultant with over 20 years of experience, has launched over 340 businesses, is an International Speaker and  #1  Best-Selling Author of Anatomy of Accomplishment, and Step Into the Spotlight to Expand your Influence,

EP - 23 I’m Sorry isn’t Enough! Introducing the Make It Right Technique

EP - 23 I’m Sorry isn’t Enough! Introducing the Make It Right Technique

July 16, 2021

WELCOME BACK PARENTS! When your child misbehaves, causes a problem for or hurts someone, is your go-to response; "Tell me your sorry!" or "You better say sorry!"?

Yep!  Often times it is our go-to response!  I'm excited to share another option for your kids to learn the effects of their behavior on others and how allowing them to make up for their mistakes or wrong doing, builds character and self-esteem!

Introducing the Make it Right Technique. 

Wouldn't it be better to teach your kids to make right what they did wrong?

Apologizing for the misbehavior or unkind behavior is "icing on the cake" and of course we DO want our kids to apologize AND we also want them to "mean it"! 
Robbing our kids of a valuable lesson by only expecting them to apologize actually sets the stage for more misbehavior!

Have you ever been hurt or wronged and then lied to?  That's often exactly what happens when we make a child say they're sorry when they really aren't!  Think about that for a minute. 

It goes like this; your child hits another child (maybe out of frustration or because the other did something mean) and you interject with a "you better say sorry".  Guess what? Likely, your child is NOT really sorry. 

While there is no excuse for hitting or hurting others, instead of forcing our children to apologize, let's teach them a way to, make right what they did wrong and increase the odds they won't repeat the same behavior!  

And guess what?  After making it up to the person they caused a problem for, most often your child will offer an "I'm Sorry" all on their own!  It comes authentically from the inside out!  So Great!

Disclaimer: Use this technique only after you and your child are calm, and the problem behavior is “over”.  Be sure neither of you are in fight nor flight mode when using this technique.  If you or the child become upset while having the conversation, stop and try again later.  The goal is for the child to make right what they did wrong and make it up to you (or whomever they harmed or caused a problem for), not to punish them. 

You are teaching that when we make a mistake or cause a problem for others, we can correct the mistake and make it up to the people that were involved or affected. 

This can be used with any person your child’s behavior causes a problem for including siblings, teachers, classmates, coaches, you as the parent or others.  And, YOU can model this behavior with your kids!  After those epic parenting fail moments when you fly off the handle or do something that causes a problem for your kid!  YOU can Make It Right with them! 

If you are not sure whether it’s an appropriate technique for your situation be sure to check in with me!  Email me: admin@helloworldmn.com

EP 20 - Parenting a Child who has lost a parent& Creating a Life you Love after Loss with special guest Kari Davis

EP 20 - Parenting a Child who has lost a parent& Creating a Life you Love after Loss with special guest Kari Davis

June 29, 2021

Welcome Back Parents!  Have your or someone you know lost a family member to death or divorce?

Today, my special guest Kari Davis shares a little bit of her family’s story.

Kari’s husband and father of her 3 children died suddenly of a massive brain hemorrhage on March 28, 2015. He was a healthy 39-year-old man and an amazing dad.

Suddenly, all of the control and good choices Kari made as a mom didn’t matter as much.

She didn’t have the energy to cook. Family time was the most painful parts of the day.

Sports and dinners and school functions were the loneliest reminders knowing that she would always raise these kids without their dad. Kari didn’t know what long-term consequences would result from the trauma they had endured.

And then, Kari found hope and confidence in herself and she began to dream again.

Meet Kari Davis - She lives in Naples, FL with her blended family of 5 kids and husband, Bobby. After being suddenly widowed at 38 years old, Kari is passionate about self-care, natural living, and creating a life you love after loss. Kari is an essential oil educator and holistic life coach.

She loves to coach other women who have been derailed by life but still desire to chase their dreams, find love again and raise amazing kids. Her wellness collaborative online space, thewellnessteam.com is her passion project and she has just begun the "Find the Beauty Podcast". Tune in to be encouraged to dream again and create a life you love!
