Parenting: nurturing heart, mind and spirit
The two Drs… Dr Robyn and Dr Rosina bring their knowledge, grand/parenting experiences, humour and their hearts to inspire and empower parents to be their personal best in all aspects of family life. Each episode is filled with helpful advice and resources to help you bring more peace, joy and delight into parenting and grand parenting.
The show is based on the blending of the latest research into parenting, grand parenting and child development with practical advice that really works. It’s all about learning to be your personal best, authentic grandparent or parent. When you have new knowledge and understanding you can be at your best, then you have the most to offer your children, grandchildren and the world!
Is ‘time out’ a good parenting strategy?
When disciplining children many parents use a strategy known as ‘time-out’, where the child is segregated for a certain period of time – either in the same room but away from others or in another room.
Parents often choose it as a ‘better’ alternative to yelling or smacking. However if you look at the research, there is evidence that this parenting tool is much more complicated than parents think and some parenting experts even consider it to be a harmful practice.
Join us on the next show when we explore the in’s and out’s of “time out!”
Is it possible to teach children to be aware of their surroundings, tidy and organised? Some of you might be thinking that this would be a miracle, right?
If you’ve had enough cleaning up after everyone else, then join the two Dr’s as we explore how to inspire your children to be aware of their surroundings, be tidy and organised. Imagine how good it will feel for you, and the positive impact it will have on your children’s lives at home, school and one day at work!
On this show we will show you how to begin this from as young as a toddler, so that the brain pathways for organisation lead to it being the first and natural response, rather than one bargained for with rewards or punishments.
Naturally, as you are teaching your child strategies for life you’ll also learn them for yourself. So hang on to your hat, as you transform your daily chores into simple tasks and maybe have some fun while you’re at it.
We are looking forward to brainstorming organisation with you next month…see you there Dr Robyn and Dr Rosina.
