Episode 44: The Science Backed Secrets to Being Patient With Our Kids and Ourselves with Wendy Bertagnole

This week is a special podcast just for my mommas out there - especially the ones with young kiddos - this podcast is for you!

As a mom to a 6 and 8 year old I know (boy do I know!) how challenging it can be to stay patient and calm when my kiddos are pushing every possible button I have. 

Not to mention that guilty monkey brain that sneaks up every night where I promise myself, “Tomorrow, I’ll yell less. Tomorrow, I’ll be more patient. Tomorrow, I’ll do better.”

Have you been there?

If so, then this podcast is just for you!

I’m joined with a special guest In this week’s episode of the Heal To Transform podcast...Wendy Bertagnole, parenting expert and author of Taming Tantrums: Simple and Positive Ways to Address Challenging Behavior and host of the Exceptional Parenting Podcast

In this episode, you’ll discover: 

  • Why time-outs, punishing, and ignoring your child when “they just want attention” may work for the time being, but they also can lead to shame and guilt in your child all the way into adulthood. 

  • Wendy breaks down the three reasons your children may be acting out, and how you can help them through these big emotions without distress and punishment. 

  • What’s really going on in your child’s brain and how punishment can causes subconscious limiting beliefs and “not good enough” beliefs in your child and in you. 

  • A powerful exercise to help you find more patience, CALM, and stronger connection in your every day parenting.
