Welcome back to Present Moment Parenting. I am your host, Mia Von Scha, and today we will be talking about toddlers who bite and what to do with the biter and the child who has been bitten without turning this into a bullies and victims scenario.
The email I received this week is from a teacher who runs a regular playgroup for moms and toddlers. This is what she said:
Hi, I’m Mia Von Scha and you are listening to Present Moment Parenting. We’re going to take a quick look today at little children and humour and whether you need to help your kids to develop their funny bones.
Here is the question that one of my Instagram followers sent to me:
Hello and welcome back to Present Moment Parenting. I'm sure that this week's topic is going to resonate with most of you... we're going to be looking at why young children don't listen and what we can do to engage with them at these times without completely losing our marbles!
Hello wonderful parents and welcome to this episode of present moment parenting. Today we're going to be talking about what to do with a child who clings to a single friend and struggles with any form of rejection.
Hello and welcome. This is Mia Von Scha of Transformational Parenting and today we are going to be discussing what to do when children label the world in very black and white ways. Here is the email that I received…
Hi Mia I call this "the dichotomous categorization conundrum"... My son, 2 and 10 months, has heard from others (not me I should hope) about "goodies" and "baddies". I hate HATE HATE this way of talking to kids and hearing things like this.
Hello. This is Mia Von Scha from Transformational Parenting. And today I have a more light-hearted question about letting kids run around barefoot. Here is the email that I received:
Hi Mia My son is barefoot 99% of the time. Occasionally he wears shoes if the road or other surface is hot or if he asks for them (unusual) or if we are at a park and I have seen glass on the grass (sadly this happens at parks). My question is 2 pronged...
This week I have a scenario from a mother of three who is worried about her son's reactions to her emotions, seeming to want her to be happy all the time.
Here's what she says... I am a mother of 3 kids, aged almost 4, 2.5 and 9 months. My oldest son, the almost 4 year old, is, "a highly sensitive boy". (I don't tell him that he is sensitive, this is just an observation). This is my concern...
This week I received an email from a father who is struggling to maintain a good relationship with his daughter while helping her with her homework. I know homework is a struggle for many parents, and I’m sure that without thinking too hard you can remember being a child and having similar issues with your own parents. Like who wants to do homework when the sun is shining and there’s fun to be had?
