Guest Intro:

Dr. Robin McEvoy is a developmental neuropsychologist practicing in Denver, Colorado.  She evaluates and diagnoses a wide range of learning disabilities and learning needs in children, adolescents and adults. This includes the identification of reading disabilities such as dyslexia. She then works with the family to develop a treatment plan to remediate the weaknesses and accentuate strengths. In addition to her private practice, Dr. McEvoy is an assistant professor at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. Dr. McEvoy has authored a children’s book, Buddy: A Story for Dyslexia  (illustrated by her daughter).  She is the co-author/editor of the recently published book, Child Decoded: Unlocking Complex Issues in Your Child’s Learning, Behavior, and Attention.

Content:

  • Child Decoded – inspired by the tough expectations and increase in labeling/diagnoses of academic/social development.
  • Using a master checklist as a guide for finding what it is they need
  • Checklist is a triage
  • Looking under the surface – physical/biomedical limitations
  • Diet and gut and neurons
  • Parents navigating all the services for their children with complex issues – and feeling as though no one else can “see” their child the way that they can
  • Gather evidence with video and photo to share information about your child
  • Child Decoded fills that gap for parents to go from “I have worries” to restarting when parents feeling stuck in the treatment/not sure what to do or where to go next
  • Modify the environment vs supporting our kids in living in the “real world”
  • Paradigm shift – we can be seeing every child in a more holistic way, look at every child as an individual… Mind AND body
  • Current lens – we tend to treat at the symptom level with the “quickest” approach (lots of times with meds)
  • Sometimes the answer is really simple
  • Complimentary/Alternative medicine
  • Both/and mindset… so many solutions in both western and eastern medicine
  • Putting together the team – who is needed?
  • How do you support parents with overwhelm and loneliness as they advocate for their kids…? Find support on the internet/social media – be proactive in seeking out support
  • Breathe – complex issues or not, you are in this for the long haul

What does Joyful Courage mean to you?

“Know that you have more experience with your child than anyone else…  You know your child the best. Have faith in your child, have faith in yourself.”

Content:

Personal Responsibility and Natural Consequences

  • Natural consequences are what happens when we stay out of the way – they occur when we let things unfold
  • What do we want most for our kids? What are our desired outcomes for this whole process of parenting?
    • Reference to a poll on my personal FB page
    • Who lets their 14 year old daughter hang out in her room with her boyfriend?
  • Two lists activity from Positive Discipline class
  • The only place that our kids can develop life skills is inside of experience… and in relationship with a healthy adults supports that as well…
  • Their experiences inspire and inform future decisions
  • There is a lot learning that we are robbing our children of because we are getting in the way
  • Parents internal experience takes over
  • Mindfulness matters when we are supporting our kids in developing personal responsibility
  • Natural consequences happens when adults don’t get in the way
  • This is a dance – boundaries are respectful kids need them, we need them
  • Kids need to feel the tension
  • Mistakes allow natural consequences – when we let them feel the consequences that show up, that we aren’t IMPOSING there is lots of room to learn
  • Example – homework
  • Help them to expand their perspective of what THEY want
  • Check your assumptions… and check in with your child
  • Humans LONG to be listened to, seen
  • Kids learn personal responsibility through experiencing having the opportunity to BE personally responsible
  • What matters is the relationship – bonded in unconditional love and mutual respect
  • Allow the natural consequence the power that they have
  • Our kids want to feel connected, as though they matter and that they have influence
  • Tools: co-creating routines and agreements, loosen up, ask questions, check your unspoken messaging, family meetings
  • We all want our kids to grow into cooperative, contributing adult living good lives
  • What already exists when they make mistakes is powerful!

Coming up next week – talking with Robin Sabbag about raising a teen daughter.

Big thanks to the community!  Thank you for listening and supporting the work of Joyful Courage!

Please pass on this show to AT LEAST one person who you think it will land with! Your sharing helps me grow and expand this work – YOU are helping to create the impact and make the world a better place.

Content:

  • I am on the journey with you, I am with you! Highs and lows, you are my peeps!
  • The teen saga continues….
  • Having a teen is like birth, you think you’re so prepared and then…. Reality hits!
  • Teen brain experiences everything so intensely
  • Eps 115 was all about trust and surrender
  • Celebrate the relationship
  • Using and developing breath as a tool
  • 4:45 Our children are our teachers – they picked us!
  • We don’t know what we don’t know and our children highlight that for us
  • Their way of being invites our “stuff” to the surface
  • We then choose how to respond
  • End of the day – they are operating from their developmental place, limited skills, brain development
  • 7:50 Parenting is a never-ending growth and development workshop – we can choose to resist or to grow/evolve
  • 9:15 There is a purpose to this journey
  • Let’s live a life where we are paying attention
  • Our children show us stepping stones to our own growth
  • When we choose into growth and learning we can influence the experience we are having
  • You can only change yourself, you can’t change others
  • Positive Discipline for Teenagers
  • Mistakes our kids make can rock our foundation and philosophy around parenting
  • Being kind and firm at the same time is one of the pillars
  • Peeling back layers of what that ^^ means
  • Kindness only = permissive
  • Firmness only = authoritarian
  • Kind isn’t NICE, it’s connected, firm is respecting ourselves and the situation
  • It’s about progress not perfection, and becoming ever more AWARE of what is happening for us
  • Making agreements is a kind and firm PD parenting tool
  • Get into our child’s world, here what their needs are, share what we need, make a plan together, declare a deadline, follow through (parents)
  • “What was our agreement?”
  • It’s not about being nice while we deliver a consequence…
  • The invitation is to make agreements with YOUR children
  • Not necessarily about the problem we solve, instead it is more about the life skills the kids are practicing inside of the agreement-making
  • Not about finding a solution that lasts forever – every solution has a shelf life
