Is Rough Play Okay??

The Kind Parenting Company

May 16 2022 • 39 mins

Does your children’s rough and tumble play panic you? Do you find it hard to control? Find yourself yelling? Does it always end in tears?

In this week’s episode of the podcast, Jacquie speaks with Conscious Parenting Coach Alita Blanchard about these questions and so much more, including why kids can’t keep their hands to themselves, how to set up respectful boundaries in roughhousing and what to do when you find yourself panicking about play that’s become too aggressive. A practical, honest conversation that pulls on both professional and personal experience.

Alita’s two ‘life changing’ books:

Running on Empty by Chrstine Musello PsyD

Adult Children of Emotionally Immature Parents by Lindsay C. Gibson PsyD
