Parents! We CAN change the world, starting with the way we're parenting our future. Up to this point in history, children have been seen as less than and parented in a way that uses power over a child. Most of us were parented in this way but there is a shift in thinking about the way we raise our kids. Parents don't feel good about using shame, blame, criticism, punishments, and even rewards, to get their kids to listen. Parents are wanting a different way because they know from their own childhoods this type of parenting hurts and leaves us with scars we take with us through our adulthood. Each one of my episodes is designed to help you navigate the difficult journey of parenting but in a way that is more peaceful and intentional. I'll show you how to get your kids to listen and cooperate without yelling, punishments and rewards. I'll show you how to understand your own feelings and those of your kids. My intention is to bring you to a place where you feel connected with your kids and yourself (we often get lost when we become parents!). Tune in weekly for all the inside tips, tools and tricks I teach my private clients to help you build the family you always wanted, and to become the parent you always envisioned you would be. I promise to provide you with fun and entertaining content that will leave you seeing your kids and your reactions in a whole new light! Please make sure to share the episodes that give you goosebumps, and leave you feeling inspired! I am always grateful for every person who subscribes, leaves a review and rates my podcast 5 stars.

Parenting Our Future

Building the Skills Your Kids Need to Love Learning | POF110

We all want our kids to do well in school, but we don't really teach them how...Like how to work through assignments, manage time, study properly, set goals, etc.

There are so many things at play when it comes to school and as parents, when our kids are struggling it makes us worry about their future and we might slip into hyper focusing on school, nagging them, shaming them, and criticizing them. But that will just make your child feel horrible about themselves and believe me, if they struggle in school, they already feel bad.
My guest, Kelsey Komorowski, is an expert in helping kids see their true potential and teaches them the skills they NEED so that they can be thriving learners and confident thinkers.

In this episode we talk about:
How our kids are feeling overwhelmed and stressed with school and they don't have the resources to support themselves
Kids are grieving the loss of "normal" school"
They feel powerless (BUT they and WE can focus on what we CAN control!)

Parenting Our Future

"Tricky behavior" can often be challenging and confronting for parents, these children are the ones that are often incredibly gifted academically or creatively and frequently grow up to be the movers and shakers of the world. Passive resistance, competitive, manipulative, aggressive, moody or argumentative traits can often disguise anxieties and stresses that children cannot articulate.

Australian Psychologist, and Family Therapist, Andrew Fuller, is here to share the secret to TRANSFORMING tricky behavior!

In this episode, we talk about:

How kids are like belly buttons!!

How a diagnosis can blind you to your child

How functions of the brain come into play

How you DON'T need to show up to every battle you're invited to! ;)

Andrew has THREE valuable tools for parents! for copies of:

Learning Strengths of Angry or Defiant Kids

Learning Strengths of Anxious Kids and

The Smart Way to RESOLVE Family Disputes

About Andrew Fuller

Australian clinical psychologist & family therapist, ANDREW FULLER. His new book TRICKY BEHAVIOURS: Managing Challenging and Confronting Children While Staying Sane! goes on sale in North America on May 1 and I'd love to book him for an interview with you on Parenting Our Future to talk about how your listeners identify their children's challenging behaviors in a positive way – to make them feel confident and cared for.

Andrew understands that while tricky behavior can often be challenging and confronting for parents, these children are the ones that are often incredibly gifted academically or creatively and frequently grow up to be the movers and shakers of the world. Passive resistance, competitive, manipulative, aggressive, moody or argumentative traits can often disguise anxieties and stresses that children cannot articulate. The secret to transforming tricky behavior is to discover the root causes of undesirable behavior and show children how to use their abilities for good, rather than turn the home or school room into chaos. In his new book, Andrew thoroughly presents and examines all the different types of tricky behavior displayed by children of all ages; and it introduces his trusty RESOLVE acronym to help parents focus on their child's needs:

  • R – respond with respect
  • E – engage and build belonging
  • S – seek understanding
  • O – observe feelings
  • L – lower the tempo
  • V – value add
  • E - empower

Drawing upon his years of practical experience and the combined wisdom of thousands of worn-out parents, Andrew helps readers empower their children to play to their strengths and learn a range of ways to interact with the world. Showing parents and educators how to apply his techniques to redirect angry, upset, and challenging behaviors can lead children (and their guardians!) to a calmer, more patient state.

Did you know that the U.S. ranks 14th globally in Financial literacy and rates only 57% of adults as having financial literacy? When we look at stats that show us that more than half of adults are financially anxious and four out of five youths fail financial literacy quizzes, we NEED HELP!

Thankfully we have financial experts like, Cindy Couyoumjian, to help us navigate the world of finances!

FIRST, you need to know that if you don't have a strong financial literacy, It's not your fault! I think we need to talk about money more openly because the days of "we don't talk about money" haven't served us.

In this episode, Cindy and I talk about:

When to teach children to talk about currency and why

when to begin using piggy banks

When to start involving their children in financial transactions

When to get them a bank account

Parenting Our Future

I was my parent's worst nightmare...I was, and still am, a picky eater. I wish my parents knew my guest, Heidi Miller when I was growing up.


When our kids don't eat what we want them to, eat too little, eat too much, don't want to sit at the table or get up constantly, we worry. We worry about their health and if they are getting enough nutrition and connection during family time.


Heidi says that kids "aren't picky, just to be PICKY". She says there is always a reason behind the behavior.

In this episode, we talk about the factors that can be getting in the way of your kids eating:

Physiological sensory allergies and more
Why families eating together at mealtimes matter
What NOT to do (hint: don't force it!)
As long as our kids are eating 60% of what we serve, they are doing well!
How to manage our expectations
How to use smart snacks


For a free copy of Heidi's "Visual Sensory Steps for Picky Eaters" go to www.parent-toolbox.com

RED FLAGS 🚩 For a Feeding PROBLEM


Child eats fewer than 20 foods


Child does not eat an entire food group


Mealtime is a very stressful time for the family because of the child's behaviors (food throwing, table avoidance, tantrums)


Child is very brand specific


Child shows aversion to being around new foods or non-preferred food


Reasons to seek intervention even if your child accepts a variety of foods child gags, vomits or chokes while eating or drinking
difficulty chewing, child is pocketing food, and drools
only eats certain textures eats small volumes of food or takes a very long time to eat (over 30 minutes)


An Additional resource for families is Feeding Matters, a non- profit organization www.feedingmatters.com

About Heidi Miller
Heidi Miller, MS, CCC-SLP, COM® is a Speech Language Pathologist, Feeding Specialist and Certified Orofacial Myologist who works with children (0-18) and families to improve their speech and feeding skills. Heidi has a specific interest in picky eating. She recently wrote and published the HMS Feeding Therapy Protocol for Expanding Repertoire of Picky Eaters and Children with ARFID to help other speech therapists and occupational therapist treat this population.


Heidi Believes through her 20 years of experience treating this population she has developed a treatment protocol that empowers the child and allows them to confidently learn to eat new foods in a safe environment. Heidi has a true passion for this work as eating can be very challenging and disruptive to a family who has a child that struggles with a limited repertoire.
Heidi Miller holds a Masters of Science in Speech Language Pathology from Nova Southeastern University. Bachelors of Science from University of Wisconsin - Madison and Minor in Education. Heidi is licensed in New Jersey, New York, Florida and Maryland.

Parenting Our Future

I know that connecting with my kids is the most important thing I can do in our relationships. Nothing feels better than when I feel strongly connected with my boys. As my kids get older, and are now in their teens, they want to do less and less with my husband and I so I need to get creative!

I am so excited to speak with my guest, Certified Health Coach, Meryl Hunte who is all about connecting with your kids in the kitchen! I love this idea and it not only brings you and your kids closer; it helps to provide them with real life skills!

In this episode we talk about:
The messages we are sending about the foods we eat and we nourish our bodies
How the kitchen is a safe place for conversations
How cooking together is a great, non threatening, way to connect with a teen
Enticing your kids into the kitchen with all the fun gadgets from shredding, blending, mixing and other fun appliances!

About Merryl Hunter

Meryl Hunte, is the owner of the Connecting Kitchen. She is an entrepreneur, certified health coach, world traveler, self-taught chef, wife, and mom of 3 adult kids. The Connecting Kitchen is all about helping people build healthier bodies and stronger relationships. She says if you want to build a better relationship with someone, try cooking with them!

She realized that cooking was a magical solution when she was looking for a way to connect with one of her sons and get him to eat healthier foods. When they started cooking together, the kitchen quickly became that non-threatening place, with lots of open spaces in the conversation where they could talk about things that mattered. It also became the place where they learned to communicate, work as a team, and where they were not only making meals, but powerful, positive memories that helped build a lasting connection.

Fast forward and she is connecting moms and dads with their kids, families, and couples across the country and around the world. We all speak the language of food. It's a great way to bring people together.

Family IS forever but when there is a breakup of a marriage, and kids are in the mix, you have to be so careful about the messages you send to your children as you uncouple.

My guest is Kimberly Ewertz, author of the book, Family Redefined: Childhood Reflections on the Impact of Divorce. In her book she interviewed adults whose parents divorced when they were children and the impact it had on them, both then and now. She shares their impacts and how to avoid them if you are facing a breakup.

In this episode we talk about how to :

  • Uncouple peacefully for your kids
  • Communicate it's not your child(ren)'s fault
  • Avoid badmouthing the other parent
  • Adjust to your new normal
  • Introduce a new partner to your kids

For a FREE FULL COPY of Kimberly's book, "Family Redefined: Childhood Reflections on the Impact of Divorce" visit www.parent-toolbox.com

About Kimberly Ewertz

Ewertz extensive work in journalism has spanned over three decades.

In her over thirty years of experience in the field of journalism Ewertz has written for numerous publications. The recipient of two Missouri College Media Association Awards, early on in her career, spurred her desire for feature writing which she still pursues today.

Ewertz began her journalism career as an editor at St. Louis Community College Meramec where she won two Missouri College Media Association Awards.

Throughout the years she has written for numerous publications focusing on feature articles where she delights in highlighting people and their accomplishments.

After twelve years of marriage, in 1990, Ewertz filed for divorce, propelling her and her then ten-year-old son into a journey of irrevocable change. That journey is the impetus for her first book, Family Redefined: Childhood Reflections on the Impact of Divorce. She currently resides in Gilroy, with her husband, and two dogs, Murphy and Charlie.

Parenting Our Future

As our kids grow up, we age right along with them…unfortunately! Well, it's not really unfortunate because with age comes wisdom, gratitude and some painful experiences (physically and emotionally).

My guest, Kristin van Ogtrop, talks about what it's like as we get older and the little indignities we face from our kids growing up and away from us, our bodies not being as reliable as they once were, the frustration and humiliation of menopause, and the pain of losing friends and family – it's a good thing Kristin is SO FUNNY!

She talks about these topics in her book, "Did I Say That Outloud? Midlife Indignities and How to Survive Them." She talks with humor and levity and ultimately gratitude on the journey we are on in midlife.

In this episode we talk about:

  • The indignities…
  • Embracing imperfection (as I inelegantly demonstrate at the end)
  • Facing mortality and how she became known as "The Fork Lady" when she had her own troubling and hilarious health crisis (hilarious now, in retrospect)
  • Watching our kids grow up and away from us and how we can make sense of it

For your free chapter called "Your Children, The Disappointment," from her book, Did I Say That Outloud – Midlife Indignities and How to survive them, join the free Parent Toolbox membership at www.parent-toolbox.com

About Kristin van Ogtrop

Kristin van Ogtrop is a literary agent at InkWell Management. In her previous life, she wrote a column called the Amateur for Time, was the editor in chief of Real Simple, and was named by Fortune as one of the "55 Most Influential Women on Twitter," a designation she now finds absurd. She was a contributor to the New York Times bestseller The Bitch in the House and the author of Just Let Me Lie Down: Necessary Terms for the Half-Insane Working Mom. She lives in Westchester County, New York, with her husband, two dogs, and any number of children, depending on the day.

It's the 100th episode of Parenting our Future! Help me celebrate by entering my draw to win prizes valued at over $5000! Go to www.parentingourfuture.com When you enter, you will be sent a gift from me: "Quick Fixes for Frustrated Families"

With my 100th episode coming up, I found myself reflecting on my motherhood journey and my journey as a parent coach. I've been a mom now, for almost 16 years. I can't believe it myself when I say that. I have learned so much along the way…all of which, I didn't know when I first became a mom.

In reflecting, I wanted to share with you some of the most important lessons I've learned along the way. I've learned these lessons from my training as a coach, from the experts that have helped my husband and I in our parenting our child with extra needs, from the WONDERFUL guests I've had the honour of speaking with on this podcast, and from the courage and vulnerability of the clients I work with.

In this 100th episode and in the next, I'm sharing the top 10 most impactful lessons I've learned.

In part 2, I talk about:

1) Feeling like you're failing is a shared experience and it's ok to ask for help! It's ok to say this is hard!

2) The story you're telling yourself is often the problem in the situation

3) When Connection is high, Resistance is low

4) Focus on teaching NOT on punishing

5) Embracing grace, going easy on yourself and forgiveness

For my handout on challenging the story you're telling yourself, join the Parent Toolbox membership at www.parent-toolbox.com

As a review, In part 1, I talked about:

1) How Parenting isn't an emergency (okay, unless there's blood or broken bones! 😉

2) Your child behavior is NEVER PERSONAL – even if they say they hate you!

3) How Listening to your kids is the greatest path to connection – "talk less and listen more" is such a game changer

4) We need to be a safe place for our kids and that means showing them empathy and validating their feelings…even if you DON'T agree

5) Accepting your child for who they are, not who you wish they were
