Ep 41. New Year, Same You
In the new year, we always seem to hear the phrase New Year, New You.The new year is all about reinventing ourselves and setting aside who we are right now to become something even better. And although I do believe that personal growth and development and continually becoming something better than we were yesterday is a hugely important part of life, I believe it’s also important to love and accept ourselves along the way.So what if this year, we started out by deciding to really get to know ourselves and accept ourselves and love ourselves for everything we are–our strengths and our weaknesses, our good parts and our no-so-good parts. Do you really know yourself?  And do you really accept yourself for exactly who you are? If you’re not sure, listen to this episode and hopefully become inspired to look at yourself a little differently this year!

The holidays can be a stressful time for just about anyone, but if you’re a separated or divorced parent, adding that in on top of what you already have going on adds another level of stress. Now you have to navigate separate household schedules, extended family expectations, both parents wanting to spend as much time with your child as possible during this special time, along with all of the emotional stuff you still might be working through.Holiday co-parenting can be so tough.  You are no longer married to your child’s other parent, yet you have to deal with them a lot, especially during the holidays. But the thing is, you and your child deserve a happy, low-stress holiday. So... in this episode, I talk about 5 tips that will help make your holiday co-parenting more healthy and less stressful for both you and your child.

Ep 36. Children & Smartphones Pt. 1: Contracts
Have you ever thought about the fact that we are the first generation of parents to ever parent the use of cell phones?  I think that deserves a badge of honor!   In this episode, we talk about using cell phone contracts with our children.  This is something you might want to consider if you don't already have one in place.  Just like everything else in life we are expected to teach our children, the use of smartphones is no different.  Your child will not automatically know how to use their phone safely and responsibly.  You must teach them.  It's important to think through how you want their smartphone usage to look and make sure it is communicated to your child in a clear way and reviewed often.  I believe a contract is the best way to do this.If you want the very simple, editable cell phone contract I use with my children, please visit  https://the-mommywhisperer.com/podcast-mentionables/Do you have questions or concerns about your child?  Let me be your mom coach, if even for just 30 minutes.  You might be surprised how much we can figure out for you and your family in just 30 minutes.

Today we are talking about how important your words of praise and encouragement are to your child.  Praise is so good for your child’s confidence and sense of self.  It also makes them want to repeat the behaviors you praised them for, usually.  Praise really works.  It’s what kids need. Watch your discouraged child start to change before your eyes.  Although there are better ways than others to praise your child, which we talk about, I truly believe any praise is better than no praise at all. There are a lot of experts out there telling us way too many rules about the right way and the wrong way to praise a child, but if it comes from your heart, you really can’t go wrong. If you aren’t sure where to begin praising and encouraging your child in the best way possible, you can visit my website, the-mommywhisperer.com, to find some great Words of Genuine Praise to get you started.  Also, if you want to learn how you can help change your teenager’s high school experience and future, come to my Free Workshop:  How to help your high school student earn college credits without changing schools or adding hours to their day.  This is information all parents need to know! https://the-mommy-whisperer.mykajabi.com/collegecredits You can also access the workshop from my website. https://the-mommywhisperer.com/ Do you have questions or concerns about your child?  Let me be your mom coach, if even for just 30 minutes.  You might be surprised how much we can figure out for you and your family in just 30 minutes.
