Hi, my name is Lindsay, mom of two and Certified Positive Discipline Educator.

When I began my parenting journey I had no clue what I was doing.

I struggled through most days. First with the sleepless nights and demands of a new baby and then through the seemingly endless bedtime battles, mealtime battles, potty battles, and the many other power struggles that go along with raising a toddler. Just when I felt like I was finally getting a handle on things we had a second child and entered a whole new world of struggles.

Despite my best efforts, I felt like I was failing.

I judged myself for not doing better. I looked around at my friends and they seemed to be keeping it together. What was I doing wrong?

As I observed myself and other parents, I started to wonder: Why do some kids listen while other children meltdown as soon as they don’t get their way? Why can some children adapt easily to new situations while other kids cling to their parents? Why do children listen to one parent but not to the other? Was is nature or nurture?

I started asking questions, reading books, and researching strategies.

Some of the parenting advice I found was great. However, I hated the one-size-fits-all approach because children are so different and what works for one child is not right for another.

The it’s-just-a-phase-they’ll-grow-out-of-it mentality left me feeling frustrated and helpless. I didn’t want to simply throw my hands up in the air and wait it out. I wanted practical solutions that worked. Solutions that left both me and my child feeling good. Solutions that brought us closer together.

I turned to the worlds of psychology and self-improvement. This is when everything started making sense. When the parenting world was saying “he just wants attention”, the psychology world explained exactly why he needs attention. When the parenting world was telling me to conjure up a bit more patience, the self-improvement world told me exactly how to do it.

I started applying what I was learning and the results were drastic. I now get complimented on my child’s great listening skills and her cooperative demeanor. People go out of their way to tell me what a pleasure it is being around my child and how well behaved she is.

Is life perfect? No.

Parenting is hard. But it doesn’t have to be that hard.

Everyday does not have to be a battle. Everything does not have to be a struggle. It can be easier.
