Identifying these building blocks are the first step on the road to easier and more successful parenting.
Key #1: Understanding & Anticipating Tantrums
Tantrums often feel unpredictable, but they actually aren't.  Getting to the bottom of tantrums and learning how to anticipate their arrival will ease a tremendous amount of day-to-day stress - while paving the way towards better communication and collaboration. When we recognize that those tantrums are usually our children trying to communicate with us, and when we can see their underlying meaning we can find a path forward that meets both of our needs.

Key #2: Parenting as a Team
Parenting as a team doesn't mean one parent convincing the other that their approach is better.  While things tend to be easier when we are aligned, disagreeing over our approach won't wreck our child.

In addition, many partners often also differ in their parenting styles. Some may handle parenting more intuitively, while the other takes a more thoughtful and deliberate approach. Wherever you & your partner might fall on the spectrum, learning how to parent as a team is a second core building block and can mean the difference between additional tension & stress vs. more effective, easier parenting.

Key #3: Goal Setting
If you want to raise an independent child but you step in to fix everything they do, you may not reach your goal. Once you’ve tamed those tantrums and are more effectively parenting as a team, a sensible next step is to discuss your family's goals (having an idea of where you are going) and values (what you want life to be like as you are working towards your goals). But the most important part?  Aligning these goals and values with your child, so that daily interactions (verbal and non-verbal) line up with those goals and values, so your actions aren’t unintentionally sending the opposite message.

We're not making goals just for the sake of making goals, but to help us make decisions on issues that can be so challenging right now - like healthy eating, screen time, and others. Then we can feel confident that we are living each day that's aligned with our values, and what were once aspirations are now everyday reality.

Based on my experience reading thousands of peer-reviewed papers for the podcast, along with work I've done with countless families around the world, I have found 9 specific areas where parents really struggle. While your parenting journey is your own, you are not alone.

Need some help implementing these research-based strategies into your own home today?
I started the Parenting Membership after I realized that parents were still struggling with many of the topics on which I had already produced podcast episodes: it turns out there's a big difference between hearing something on a podcast once and actually being able to implement it in your real life with your real family.

The Parenting Membership is open for enrollment once a year and is perfect for parents who have children aged ~1-6 who either need help right away with urgent challenges, or are simply looking to bolster their parenting toolbox with sound research-based strategies in what members call 'the least judgmental corner of the internet.'

We cover a core topic each month - starting with the 3 Key topics discussed above. Parents log into a custom built learning platform to review each month's new module of content, using proven exercises to create solutions that align with their own family values. Support is also provided through our private community, video Q&As, small group peer coaching and even 1:1 consults with Jen.

2022 Parenting Membership Open Enrollment is over, but parents can join the waitlist for when we reopen in May 2023.
