School-Aged kids have big and more complex emotions.

As kids get older, their emotions become deeper and more complex. Tantrums over having the colour of their plate turn into tears over a friend hurting their feelings. From bedtime, school drop-offs, separation anxiety, and everything in between, it can be tricky knowing how to deal with their deep feelings and big behaviours.

Share one body safety rule you have below⬇️!

As a therapist, I have worked with many adults who struggled because their parents felt a deep shame talking about body safety. They grew up feeling like they couldn't turn to their parents with their questions about tricky topics - and would turn to their peers or the internet, or struggle in silence instead.

Because of this, these body safety rules are very important in our home, and Scott and I have implemented them from the start with our girls.

And, here's what happens now:
⭐️ When someone says 'stop' during roughhousing, our kids put their hands up in the air.
⭐️ My daughter feels comfortable asking tricky questions like what a tampon is.
⭐️ My kids know that their 'NO' needs to be respected.

Creating house rules based on your family's values is a HUGE part to having a more peaceful home. Your child learns exactly what to expect from you. 

But, we often wait to set a boundary until we are in the moment - when the roughhousing goes too far, we catch them in a lie, or see the search history on Google.

What if we did this proactively? 

This is exactly what we help you do in our brand new Setting Boundaries course and 7-day challenge. Inside the challenge, we will help you create a list of your family's values and reflect on your childhood experiences.

Then, we will teach you how to implement these "family rules" in your home, so your kids know what to expect. 

From there, we troubleshoot with you. Let's say you value a "peaceful home where the kids don't yell at their parents," - how do you actually implement this? We have video lessons that show you exactly how to set boundaries and create real change!

The doors to the boundaries challenge are only open for a few more days (we don't know when we are opening them again)!

To learn how to create house rules, troubleshoot challenging behaviour, and create boundaries that stick, grab the Setting Boundaries course plus 7-day challenge in the link in bio for less than $60 CAD (under $45 USD)!
“I can see how much you love your kids,” the doctor said today as I was there with two crying, snotty, and sick children. 🤧

Ugh. I needed that. Parenting is hard sometimes. 
You don’t always feel like you are the fun or exciting parent. And sometimes it feels like you aren’t doing big things to show your kids you love them.

It’s helpful to be reminded that ✨ the little things matter ✨.

When I was working with kids, I’d always ask their parents, “What’s one way your child knows that you love them?” 

They’d answer things like: 
🛏️ The way I rub their back at bedtime. 
🍝 I make them their favourite meal. 
🤝 I give them three hand squeezes before they go on the school bus. 

💕 I thought we should all take a pause today and share one way we’ve shown our kids that we love them. 

Remember, the simple things are the big things.

Share your “one way you’ve shown love today” below!
Tag a fellow parent who has ✨chaotic✨ dinner times below! ⬇️ 

We asked parents where they struggled most with setting boundaries, and one of the top areas was dinner time!

Kids were leaving the table, throwing food, refusing to eat, having tantrums, and fighting with their siblings.

What parents wanted to be a nice family time often felt rushed and chaotic.

This makes sense! 

Dinner time can be difficult because of 3 things: 
➡️ Parents are holding unrealistic expectations for their kids
➡️ Kids are hungry or tired (or both!)
➡️ Kids are seeking connection from their parents (especially after being apart all day!)

It's no wonder parents are having a hard time... dinner time is tough! But it doesn't have to be like this - boundaries are the key to more calm and connected dinner times. 💛

Boundaries can help you to:
✨ Establish realistic boundaries at dinner time
✨ Respond to hungry and tired kids in a way that feels good
✨ Connect with your child's feelings and teach them new ways to behave at dinner time

It's important to reflect on your values before you eveeeer sit down at the dinner table, so both you and your kids know the boundaries! 

What is one family boundary you have around dinner time? Share below!! ⬇️

PS 🫢- Are you struggling to set boundaries with your kids?  If you struggle to respond to your child's difficult behaviours and want to learn how to set boundaries, grab our Setting Boundaries Course (Workshop & 7-Day Challenge)! We guide you through exactly how to set boundaries in your home and give tons of mealtime examples!! Enrollment to challenge will be open for 1 WEEK ONLY -starting today!

I lost my cool with my kids. My toddler had spilled sunflower seeds all over my freshly cleaned floor as she and her older sister yelled and ran around the house.

It was loud and messy, and I was overstimulated. 

I wished I could take back my yell as soon as it came out. I could see the girls look at me with tears in their eyes.

I take a breath and remember: Just because I started this with yelling doesn’t mean it has to end here.

The best thing I can do is repair.

I take a deep breath and say: “I’m sorry, girls, this isn’t how I want to talk to you. It’s not ok for me to yell.”

How you repair with your child teaches them that when you hurt someone you care deeply for, you take the time to apologize and work to do things differently next time. 

💫 The key: You are responsible for your emotions. 💫

A child doesn't make us yell - we yell because of our own internal reasons. In this situation, I’m yelling because I’m overstimulated. 

Our kids need to know that they aren't responsible for our emotions. AND once I’m calm it’s ok for me to set boundaries around the yelling and the sunflower seeds on the floor.

What is one truth you want your child to know after you lose your cool? Share below! 💛
