Rank #1: My Kids Won’t Do Their Chores Without My Nagging

Podcast cover
Read more
Have you ever wondered, "My child can’t manage to even take the garbage out. How will she ever survive in adulthood?" Or, maybe it sounds more like, "I do so much for these kids. Why can’t they do a few simple things to help out?!"
Today’s episode is loaded with tools and will give you a lot to think about as Jim Jackson and Stacy Bellward talk with Connected Families parent coach Chad Hayenga and pull apart the question, “What should I do when my kids won't do their chores without my nagging?"

In today’s episode you’ll learn:

Effective use of “when/then” statements.
The link between clear expectations and kind and firm accountability.
Insight into what compels parents to nag their kids.  
How to help those distractible kids.
How to link privileges to responsibilities in an encouraging way. 

and more! 
Ready to go deeper on this topic? Our 4-session online course, “The Entitlement Fix” (also available for small groups!) will give your family the tools you need to grow gratefulness and hard work. At only $23, we feel that this is a fantastic value. If that isn’t in your budget, check out our scholarship options.

Rank #2: My Kids Fight All the Time!

Podcast cover
Read more
It’s summer and the kids are home from school. Is the constant fighting and bickering more than you can take? 

This week we welcome Lynne Jackson, parent coach and co-founder of Connected Families. She brings stories and practical solutions you can apply (today!) to the sibling conflict in your home. Your big take-away from this podcast: 

Enter with big, sincere empathy for both kids (conflict is hard!) and then, as they begin to settle down, guide them toward their own solution. 
To help make this practical we’ll introduce you to The Peace Process. This will give you a simple and memorable path down off “crazy mountain” toward true reconciliation:

calm (calm ourselves and help kids calm down)
understand (empathize with your kids and help them understand each other)
solve (use questions to help kids solve their problem)
celebrate (highlight and recognize what went well) 
We expand on these ideas in our 5-session online course Sibling Conflict: From Bickering to Bonding (also available for small groups!) In this course we equip you with lots of practical tools so your kids can learn to resolve their own conflicts well. At $28, we feel like that is a fantastic bargain! If that isn’t in your budget, check out our scholarship options. Register today! Your kids will thank you!

Parenting is hard. It takes everything we have...and then some. What happens when we get to the point of feeling totally overwhelmed and hopeless? On this Connected Families Podcast episode, we discuss these overwhelmed feelings, pull them apart, and ask what we can do about them. 

Our guest today is parenting coach and Connected Families co-founder, Lynne Jackson. Lynne clearly remembers the times she felt overwhelmed and hopeless as she raised her three rambunctious kids. She will bring practical ideas to encourage you today. 

In this podcast we discuss:

How expectations can feed feelings of hopelessness.
The idea behind toxic half-truths.  
Two key questions to help us identify and replace toxic lies with God’s truth.

Help your child feel safe, loved, called and capable, and responsible for their actions. Check out the following resources:
Parenting Assessment (FREE!) Take this 24-question (15-minute) assessment to learn your parenting strengths and opportunities for growth.

Rank #4: My Child Won’t Get Off Screens

Podcast cover
Read more
SCREEN TIME!!! It’s a persistent battle in almost every home. And it is one of the questions we receive most frequently. What should you do when your child constantly asks you for screen time?  And more screen time? We expand on the following three ideas in this podcast:

Get yourself calm.
Be clear about expectations, and what will happen if expectations aren’t met.
Hold kids accountable to meet those expectations in a way that gains, not loses, kids’ respect.

Your calm respectfulness gives weight to your authority so you can hold your kids accountable.

Might sound simple, but what does this look like in everyday life? Listen in as we use role plays to pull apart a typical parent-child interaction about screens. 

Our guest today is Connected Families parent coach Chad Hayenga. Chad is a licensed marriage and family therapist and has coached hundreds of parents - many with tween and teen children (and their challenges). Chad gives practical tips for this heated topic of screen time.

He will help you explore the questions:

What is your child hearing from you as you engage about screen time?
What messages are they getting from you?
Is there a better approach?
Help your child feel safe, loved, called and capable, and responsible for their actions. Check out the resources we mentioned on the podcast:

Have you ever said these words? Perhaps even this morning? ;-)
On this Connected Families Podcast episode we discuss this relevant parenting concern and provide steps that you can take to move forward with grace and connection.

Our guest today is parenting expert, and Connected Families co-founder, Lynne Jackson, OTR. Lynne brings practical tips that you can use and a deeper understanding around the brain science of meltdowns. She’ll help you explore the questions:

What is going on with me?!?
What is going on with my child?
How should I respond when my child won't calm down?

You’ll learn what to say and do when your child won’t calm down, including how to effectively use empathy in the midst of a meltdown (I know! It’s hard!). You’ll also learn the keys to reducing the frequency of those meltdowns over the long haul, so your child can begin to learn to calm down independently when upset.
