37. Effects of Screen time on children with Ralphie Jacobs

From the Mouths of Babes

This week we welcome Ralphie Jacobs from @simplyonpurpose to talk with us about the effects of screen time on a child's developing brain. Studies show that 77% of parents are saying that raising their kids is harder nowadays because of technology; and kids wish their parents would get off their phones.  Psychology Today says that, parents using their phones in front of their children causes more distress and reduces resilience in children. We model behavior for our children. We send messages and social cues to our children. So whether that's establishing boundaries for yourself or your children, this is a great conversation. Ralphie lives in Austin Texas with her husband and their 4 daughters.  As an Early Childhood Education expert Ralphie quickly learned that the best way to impact a child’s life for good is to teach parents.  She founded @simplyonpurpose where she writes about parenting, family culture, and living with purpose.  Her audio course changed thousands of homes.  She also travels across the country speaking at workshops on positive parenting.Check out some of her free resources on her website. https://simplyonpurpose.org/--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/fromthemouthsofbabes/messageSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/fromthemouthsofbabes/support

Positive Discipline with Ralphie Jacobs of Simply On Purpose

The MomForce Podcast Hosted by Chatbooks

For years, Ralphie Jacobs of @simplyonpurpose has been teaching parents to find the good in their children! And today, she is answering a few of the most common questions we see in our MomForce Facebook group.  Question 1: How do you discipline a child when they do NOT listen? Ralphi tells us to first think about what we are expecting our child to do and then to remmebr that there are 2 steps to compliance: starting to comply and then full compliance. So if you want your child to turn off the TV and come to dinner, tell them they have 20 seconds to get ready to come to dinner. Then follow up with “Now it’s time to come to dinner” Children want to please their parents but they need to know what their expectations are - and remember - they model what they see.  Question 2: How do you stop children from teasing/fighting? Did you know that 90% of sibling conflict is inconsequential - meaning it does not require your attention. As soon as you insert yourself into the conflict, it prolongs the problem and it turns into sibling rivalry - who gets mom on their side!? Ralphie reminds us that when she overhears her children argue, instead of getting upset, she reminds herself that they are safe. They feel secure enough to talk about their problems in a home that is full of love, knowing they will be supported when they make mistakes. Children learn valuable lessons on how to properly resolve conflicts when they are given the chance to do so. Remeber. You are the parent and you get to decide how far you will let the conflict go and when to step in. SImple, direct statements, said in love and compassion will help diffuse a situation that may have gotten out of hand. They are kids, after all. Question 3: How do you discipline a two and a half year old? I need something that I can do consistently and everywhere. Our favorite quote from the episode came when Ralphie was answering this question. She said that to discipline is to teach! She also says that most of our children’s misbehavior is actually stress behavior. Ask yourself - Is my child tired? Hungry? Anxious?  The same goes for teenagers. Instead of a tantrum, they act tough and “intimidate” But are they tired? Overworked? Stressed? A good night’s sleep does wonder for toddlers and teenagers alike! Ralphie leaves our listeners with her last words of encouragement which are “It’s never too late to make positive changes” Kids are inherently good. And we are the exact best parents our kids need. And like Ralphie likes to say - “When a child feels well, they behave well!”

"One of the big struggles for me is to remind myself that I'm in charge..." At 10:00, hear the moment Ralphie thought this could really be something and realized it was no longer a hobby. Ralphie gives us insight into how many events she is doing and what her model looks like for setting up her events. "People just want to be a part of something that's good..." At minute 16:45, hear one of the greatest pieces of advice she has received. I ask Ralphie if her buyers and people that attend her events are asking for her to create more products...do they want more? "They'll love you for it if you're generous..." At 22:11, Ralphie shares what her business strengths are that have been a key factor in her success. I ask her what her work schedule looks like and how far out she plans her events.
