Kira and Deana talk about the power of catching our kids being their amazing selves and positively reinforcing their behavior. They share ways to honor kids when they get it “right” as well as ways to honor what makes them unique and special just by being themselves.

In the first week of the break before Season 4 launches we are replaying our episode on Emotional Intelligence where Kira offers strategic principles for instilling EI in children. She also shares her accessible “3Ns” strategy for handling big feelings.
Deana and Kira speak with Katie, an FFP struggling with balancing “it’s ok to cry” and “does it have to be ALL of the time?” Together the co-hosts use their parent coaching method to help her to re-frame the problem, find solutions and arm her with some practical tools and strategies to try at home.
Kira shares her expertise on this important topic, exploring ways to spot the difference between a fear and a phobia, the different types out there (there are many!) and most importantly, the tools to prevent them in the first place.
Deana and Kira speak with Wendy Gossett, a temperament specialist and coach, who helps parents understand why their children do the things they do based our their personality types. She explains how understanding your child’s temperament can be the key to unlocking a challenging relationship.
