Instilling virtues and building character in our kids helps them to become responsible and respectful people AND improves their attitude and overall behavior as they grow.

EP 16 - Parenting Kids with Anxiety and Big Emotions with special guest Kelly Winkler

EP 16 - Parenting Kids with Anxiety and Big Emotions with special guest Kelly Winkler

June 10, 2021

Welcome Back Parents! Today's episode introduces us to the benefits of becoming a mindful parent and getting ourselves prepared to respond to our kid's big emotions.  My special guest Kelly Winkler shares how her inspiration to become a yoga instructor for children and parents came from watching her preteen daughter fall in love with yoga and use it as a tool to deal with anxiety.

Kelly received a B.S. in Human Development and Family Studies from Penn State University. She has an extensive background working with children. She started her career as a child life specialist in the hospital setting. She then obtained her elementary teacher certification and has taught children ranging in age preschool through fifth grade. She is also a mother of four children.

Kelly began her journey with yoga 16 years ago when she was pregnant with her first child. As a former educator and child life specialist Kelly became inspired to bring yoga to children. Over the years the environment in which she worked with children changed, however, one thing remained constant, her belief that the most important things she could bring a child were self-confidence, strength, and the power to create their own inner peace.

Kelly earned her children's yoga certification through Kidding Around Yoga and is a Kidding Around Yoga Trainer. She gives professional development for educators to incorporate mindfulness and yoga into their classroom.

Kelly believes the benefits of mindfulness are so powerful she has created a podcast for parents and teachers Mindful Moments for Families and Schools where she shares these tools. She strives to educate and engage children and their families in these practices. She is now offering a parent coaching to help families have a more calm and connected home.

To learn more about how you can help your child with anxiety and/or BIG emotions you can reach out to Kelly via the links below:

For more information about anxiety please go to The National Alliance on Mental Health or consult your pediatrician.

I'd love to hear from you!  What questions do you have about anxiety with your kids or as it relates to your parenting?  What have you tried that really helped?  Comment on this podcast or email with your questions and/or suggestions.

EP 14 - Parenting Your Highly Sensitive Child with special guest Asia Irgangladen and Purposeful Parenting Now

June 1, 2021

Welcome back parents!! Did you know that 15-20% of children are born with a nervous system that is highly sensitive?  These kiddo’s are overwhelmed by high levels of stimulation and activity, they have a hard time transitioning and are super sensitive to the emotional distress of others. 

Highly Sensitive Children are often quick to react to everything, although, get this; these kids would prefer to reflect before acting.

So parents, if you’ve been struggling with a child who is emotionally intense and demanding or maybe you have a child who is fairly easy to raise except when they’re with a group of children or people they don’t know, I have a great resource for you!

Asia Irgangladen is the founder of Purposeful Parenting Now. She is dedicated to showing families how to cultivate healthy relationships by shifting their focus, implementing strategies and structure in the home, and developing clear communication to allow parent and child to hear each other.

Asia draws on her Special Education teaching background and a Positive Parent Educator Certification. On a personal note, growing up in a big, multigenerational family taught her firsthand about the strengths, challenges and complexities of family life, and the diverse, unique needs of each child.

Asia provides her clients with a comprehensive problem-solving tool kit with a step-by-step system, including mindfulness strategies, and clear guidance for families to transform chaos into calm.

In today’s episode Asia is going to explain the difference between a tantrum and a meltdown And how emotions are like poop! 

So listen in parents, having a highly sensitive child is not a problem when we seek first to understand why they behave the way they do!

EP 11 - Are you losing your cool with your kids because you’re too nice?

EP 11 - Are you losing your cool with your kids because you’re too nice?

May 14, 2021

HELLO PARENTS!  You’re irritability with your kids might be at an all time high right now – this past year has been super challenging and our patience in general has been tested to the max.

Add behavior problems to your already stressed out life and it’s no wonder you’re losing your cool!

A good majority of my coaching clients this past year have come to me with this problem – and they are trying their best to keep their cool and not react

But here’s the deal. The root of the "flying off the handle" problem is almost always because these parents have been too nice!  Sounds like an oxymoron, right?

Listen in as I share how being too nice and not allowing natural or logical consequences to happen, not following through with the little things because you just want to keep the peace can cause you to blow up in the long run.

EP 9 - Consequences vs Punishment - Allow your child to learn from their mistakes

EP 9 - Consequences vs Punishment - Allow your child to learn from their mistakes

May 11, 2021

Hello Parents! Consequences are meant to teach kids how to deal with and overcome problems they've created.  There's no need to "rub salt in the wound" once your child has made right what they did wrong.

No-Problem Parents understand that problems are meant to be dealt with and overcome and that the best way to teach your child "a lesson" is to allow them to own their problems or misbehavior and to solve the problem themselves.  Our job as the parent is to guide them as they make mistakes throughout their childhood and we can do so with empathy even when we are super frustrated, disappointed or hassled by the misbehavior. 

In today's episode I share the "Make it Right Technique" which can be used when your child has hurt or caused a problem for someone else.  And, you can model this technique by using it for yourself, in your daily life when you have hurt or caused a problem for your child or someone else!

Here's a link to the FREE MAKE IT RIGHT PDF and here's a link to schedule a call with me if you'd like a real life example of how you can use the technique: Jaci's Calendar
