In this previous post, we discussed three initial areas - that through my experience with helping parents around the world - prove to be some of the most challenging topics we face: Raising Healthy Eaters, Emotion Regulation, and Raising Siblings Who Love Each Other. Let's go ahead and discuss three more...
Your parenting journey is your own, but you are not alone.
Parenting Struggle:
Navigating Screen Time
The topic of screen time is on every parent's mind - whether we're considering the very real challenge of turning screens off, or longer term worries of social media... especially when we are juggling our own needs for peace and rest, and screen time helps with this. The key is to find a balance - that's uniquely right for your family, integrated into your own values & goals -  and leave behind screen time as a reward or a crutch to lean on.

Parenting Struggle:
Understanding Your Child's Temperament
You know how some children are naturally gifted athletes, while others are born artists?  While it would be nice to be good at everything, sometimes our brains are just predisposed to work one way, rather than another. Understanding our child's temperament can go a long way towards raising the child we have, vs. the child we wish we had. And understanding our child's struggles in context, along with how our own temperament compares to our child's, can help to meet our needs, along with theirs.

Parenting Struggle:
Rhythms, Rituals, Routines
Rhythms, rituals, and routines form the fabric of how we live our lives.  Sometimes these are aligned with our values, so we spend time on activities we find meaningful without having to think too much about it.  More often, we fall into habits that aren't aligned with our values - which takes us further away from our parenting goals.  Bringing our daily activities into alignment with our values and goals helps us to feel a sense of 'right'ness in the world.
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 now 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 starts May 15th and new members begin June 1st. If things just seem HARD, the Parenting Membership will help you make the changes you want to see.
