A lot of you've reached out to me with questions around sensory issues, sensory integration, and how to support the development of the senses in our young children.

For today's show, I invited a dear friend Lalla Carini who's been an extremely important teacher in my life for the past 14 years to share her wisdom and experience.

She holds a tremendous amount of love and compassion around these topics and I'm so exci...

If your child has some anxiety about separating, it can be super helpful for them to see you connecting with the teacher.  I would invite the parent to hold their child and sit down with me for tea.

When the child witnesses the safety and trust that is present between parent and teacher, they can more easily trust themselves.  This can be more important than pressuring the child to open up to the teacher and accept them.

Also, if y...

Our children stand before us with endless “What” and “Why” questions, they push back on our requests, refuse our meals, and challenge us to go back inside and come up with something better than, “Because I said so!”

But the truth is, during these formative years, our children take in very little of our verbal communication with them.

So many parents worry about crafting the perfect answer, offering the right activity, disciplining ...

It can feel impossible to speak our truth when it has been dismissed and de-valued our entire life.

Especially when our subconscious has connected speaking out to experiencing pain.

It can feel scary to find out that our truth looks very different from who our parents think we should be.

Every human walking the earth has a story.

As we come into contact, we cannot help but to project our story onto each other.

When we take the time...

When our child is tantruming, pushing back or having a difficult time it can be challenging for us to hold space in that moment because we have so many unshed tears ourselves.    Years and years of suppressed emotions that then get "triggered" when our child is going through something or an experience that we have not yet had the opportunity to work through or release ourselves.    So in the heat of the moment, it can be di...

It can be exhausting to go through every day guiding a young child this way and that way, moment by moment.

When you develop a routine it will carry the whole family and the child quickly learns what is coming next which supports them to go with the flow.

By setting a routine you are deciding ahead of time, with your partner and any other caregivers, what your limits are and where they lie.

This way when something unexpected comes ...

Emotional and social intelligence grows and develops through relationship and primarily through the experiences that a child has with his or her parents.

When we offer our children empathy and help them to cope with negative feelings like anger, sadness, and fear, we create a foundation of loyalty and trust that our children carry with them throughout their lives.

This is a quick story of how I approach this with my daughter.

The Piketon Massacre
The Piketon Massacre
On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
