If you have a question about your child’s behavior I am hopeful you will find the answers you are looking for on my blog or in my various books, songs, and articles on Emotional Literacy-Time-In Parenting a meaningful way to parent.
Parents when you change your behavior your child’s behavior improves
VERY IMPORTANT FIRST STEP
1/ When you ask your child how they feel DONT EXPECT AN ANSWER .
KIDS DONT KNOW HOW THEY FEEL, THEY CANNOT ANSWER YOU..
Dont ask them how they feel.. Instead Wonder Out Loud how they might be feeling:)?
I wonder if you are ANGRY, I wonder if you are hurt or disappointed?
Do not expect a response for months or sometimes years depending on the child..
What you can expect is a Change in their Behavior or Mood..If you GUESS The Correct Feelings
3/ I help parents and kids learn how to implement Emotional Intelligence skills for overeating. Did you know Kids feelings can get hungry and that as a parent you can help your child learn to tell the difference between Hungry Feelings and Hungry Tummy. Until society understand the connection between emotional issues and childhood obesity and break the food-mood connection, we will not cure the epidemic. While it’s true that kids have too much fast food, too much homework and not enough recess or physical activity, the obesity epidemic cannot be solved without dealing with the emotional issues of why children overeat and parents overfeed.
Healthy Feelings = Healthy Eating = Healthy Lifestyle
4/ I believe in trying to prevent emotional problems and obesity in kids by teaching parents Emotional Intelligence skills for baby’s and toddlers.
(5 months and older).
In our society where punishment and yelling the “road to nowhere” reigns supreme, parents can discover and practice new techniques of “Time-In” not “Time Out” parenting. Time-In provides a groundbreaking way to transform us by replacing punishment with praise, scolding with skill-building, and outdated failures with future success.
The Songs “My Feelings Are Hungry,” “Gotta Find Out,” and “Stinkin’ Thinkin’ are also great ways to learn about feelings hiding underneath misbehaving. Sing, dance have fun with your children, while learning to decode and understand what your child’s behavior is communicating.
Parents also often ask “Why learn about the feelings hiding underneath the behavior or overeating? The answer is because most of our children’s behavioral problems are a backwards way of telling us how they feel . We need to teach them new skills , new solutions and a better way to cope with emotions. In addition research shows that Emotionally healthy children:
Are better learners Have fewer behavior problems Feel better about themselves
Are better able to resist peer pressure Are less violent, more empathetic
Are better at resolving conflicts Are less likely to engage in self-destructive behavior (drugs, alcohol, teenage pregnancy)
Have more friends, Have better impulse control
Are better able to delay gratification Are happier, healthier and more “successful”

We all have different skills, talents and things we notice. One of my talents happens to be noticing the connection between a child’s actions and the feelings underneath it. It’s something I can see very clearly as if I was watching a movie.

Myth Busters Myth # 1 Babies are just born, that way, overweight: Contrary to popular beliefs you can over feed a breast and bottle fed baby.
Myth #2 Children will grow out of being overweight: Obesity starts very early and the only thing children grow out of are clothes.
Myth #3 Asking friends, other parents for advice: Instead of Research-Based Parenting on what works best for kids parents ask other parents.
Myth #4 Obesity is just about Healthy Eating and Exercise: The obesity epidemic cannot be solved without dealing with the emotional issues of why children overeat and parents overfeed.
Myth #5 Most parents think they can have it all — and do it all well. The alarming increases in obesity and psychiatric numbers show that our kids are suffering because their emotional needs are not being met. Parents are too busy and distracted.
Myth#6 Its not really a problem we can wait to fix it: The key to success is early intervention.
Myth #7 I will put my child on a diet: The best thing to do is build a child’s emotional thermostat so they learn not to overeat because of hidden feelings and they stop eating when full.
