:::::

Meet Alison Smith, mother to two adorable kids, proud wife, former elementary school teacher  and now teacher coach, advocate and revolutionary in win/win parenting.  Like many of us Alison had visions of being the best, doing the best and really being that one adult that impacted her students lives powerfully.  As a self identified recovering perfectionist, Alison entered the teaching world and become a mother. It did not take long to identify that something in the work with children had to change. Fueled by her passion and her journey, Aliso identified a need for teachers to feel supported in their work.  In her coaching, teachers are inspired and supported to be the most authentic, joyful and wholehearted teacher they can be.

 

IN THIS EPISODE:

  • Alison shares Bonnie Harris’ iceberg analogy and how it guides parents to identify the underlying root of a child’s behavior.
  • Like a medical issue, we often treat the symptom until the symptoms persist then we are forced to find the root cause.
  • Realizing that the child’s behavior that triggers us is the root cause of our reaction and inability to connect and show up best for the child.
  • Only when we dig into our roots and what is underneath our icebergs can we better guide our children through their own experiences.
  • Triggers can cause us to panic and ‘future trip’ into fear about our child’s behavior, enabling us into unhelpful methods.
  • Using our curiosity to dig to the root - is my child hungry, tired, overstimulated, cold, hot, uncomfortable, lonely?.
  • Once we identify our triggers we can move into the practice of showing up the way our kids need us to.  We chose connection and enforcement that they matter.
  • Often we misjudge our kids motivation and intention leading to disconnection and an increase in the child’s mischief.
  • Once a parent gets it and truly understands the process begins within the parent first then the practice strengthens and the child, family and parent begin to thrive.
  • There is no one perfect general response to situations with your child.  
  • Practicing prevention, in-the-moment and then repair strategies alleviate and get to the root of the issue.
  • An open conversation on how parenting is shifting from authoritarian to permissive.  Why parents today need something to change and are willing to find the courage to revolutionize how the adult/child relationship evolves.

Parenting from within takes practice practice practice. What are the significant tools we need to really delve within? Inside of us exists what we need to connect to the way we want to parent.  Using these tools at our disposal will allow us to open up, connect, reset and navigate the challenges that come with development. Just like we are in constant practice it’s key to continue the conversation! Our children are not the only humans in development.

 What you will hear

  • The emotional journey of choosing Positive Parenting
  • Is your inner voice helping or hindering your practice
  • Our old stories can create blocks when we practice PD
  • What shows up when our children touch on those old stories (triggers)
  • How we talk to ourselves when it seems everyone around us has it together
  • Where do we chose to sit when we are in anger, resentment and “stuckness”
  • Why are you choosing PD and/or Conscious Parenting?
  • What are the themes that drive us to want to parent this way?
  • What themes to we use to keep us on a pendulum
  • Once we choose into the practice we can create habits that navigate through these themes and stories
  • Awareness is the first step to helping us acknowledge the triggers so we can create a connection into this parenting journey
  • This is a collective journey
  • Mindfulness with ground us into the practice and what we need
  • Using mindfulness will bring you into your biggest tool- your body, senses, feelings and emotions
  • Listening to your body is accepting the messages and signals you are sending to your conscious
  • What do you notice in challenging situations?
  • Where do your signals sit? Belly? Shoulders? Chest?
  • Follow the wisdom your body is sending.
  • Fears cloud our vision and takes us into the “what ifs”
  • Getting curious allows us to approach our children without getting stuck in the fog
  • How to use the neutrality of your body to shift into a better experience
  • Shifting can open us up the possibility that we are the best parent for our kids and we can make repairs
