"I HATE to yell at you… But you make me do it. It's your fault."
Recently, I spoke with a mom who said that she tells her kids this all the time.
Do you ever feel like this, when your child is giving you crazy attitude ?
Or when your child is whining, or picks a fight with a sibling over absolutely nothing at all?
In short, do you ever feel like you cannot take your child's bad, embarrassing behavior for one more second?
If so, today's episode gives you a ninja tactic that will completely change this dynamic!
If you really care about stopping your children's annoying behavior before it starts, and you really care about not flying off the handle with them… Today's episode shows you how to do it.
Listen in to find out how to do it right!

So, I got totally sick with bronchitis! I am thankfully on the mend, but I haven't had a voice suitable for radio at all… Which means I'm extra-happy to bring you this great conversation, a listener favorite from 2017.
Early childhood education professors Lisa Daly and Miriam Beloglovsky are in the midst of writing a series of books called Loose Parts, extremely practical books about structuring a kid's environment to eliminate lots of problems, including temper tantrums!
But, I bet that's not how they would describe it… Because while we are eliminating the problems, we are fostering really cool stuff in our children – and THAT is what Loose Parts is really about.
