The Great Parenting Show with International Giveaway

It has been almost a decade since I became a parent. (I can’t believe I am that old!)

parentingAnd in that decade, I have learned what we all learn when those babies crash our lives — this gig is hard!

I have attended parenting classes and workshops, read books, watch TV shows, read websites, listen to radio shows — and even been in therapy! lol

Yes, I like to take in as much information from “experts” as possible.

So I was intrigued when Jacqueline Green asked us to spread the word about her parenting show, The Great Parenting Show. Jacqueline interviews top parenting experts and educators from all over the world to answer parenting questions, such as:

  • How to discipline your children without ruining their self-esteem?
  • How to put nutritious meals on the table without it taking up so much time?
  • How to protect your child from being bullied at school or online?
  • How to raise your child’s emotional EQ raising happier more resilient children?
  • How to overcome your own parenting issues so as not to raise children with hang-ups?
  • How to raise your children financially aware?

    All my questions would revolve around sleep—we are in the toddler just got a new bed stage and expecting a new baby in November and nap time is becoming a bit erratic as is our night bed time……and I so love sleep.

      Getting everyone in the family enough sleep is always such an important but tough issue. Janice and I can related to troubles in this area. I’ve coslept with both mine – yes even when I had a newborn, I managed to sleep between the two of them – and Janice followed sleep-training methods with her first and he was a great sleeper when he was a baby and toddler, but by age 3 or 4 he started coming into their bed and that lasted a couple years. She gave in and coslept with her second and loves it.

      It is very tough and I send lots of empathy your way. I think finding the solution that works for YOUR family is very personal and you can listen to lots of advice but then you must decide what works for you.

    I’ve struggled with self-esteem and body issues my entire life. How do I raise my girls to live a healthy lifestyle and respect & value for themselves as they are when I struggle with these things daily? How do I avoid passing my obsessions and destructive patterns onto them?

    • says

      I think that is such a great question and the fact that you’re asking it and aware of the issue is great.

      One thing I’d say that is huge is don’t ever say out loud in front of your kids anything negative about your appearance. If you look in the mirror and make any comment along the lines of you think you look fat or ugly, they will think, “I look like her, so I must look fat or ugly too.”

      I think let your vision of them living healthy, happy lives inspire you to start doing the same and fill your mind and your words with uplifting thoughts.

      Because you are beautiful and so are they.

      All the best,

    I have a six year old boy whom we have noticed “rubbing himself” and finding objects that vibrate to help him out like my back massager. He hides and I want to talk to him but I really don’t know what to say to him. I’m stumped and I don’t want him to feel embarrassed about what he does or feels but me and my husband need some help on this one. I knew that the day would come we would have to answer questions but he isn’t asking questions. I don’t want him feeling ashamed. I just want to go about this the right way since I have a 2 1/2 year old girl. Any advice would be greatly appreciated on this one.

      Susan here… and I’m not a trained expert or doctor, but from what I’ve heard, this is not anything to worry about. Lots of kids at all sorts of ages stimulate themselves in some way.

      My instinct is to ensure that he doesn’t feel embarrassed or ashamed… just make it be not a big deal but if he’s doing it in public, let him know that is a private thing and not appropriate when others are around.

      Mostly, try to not feel embarrassed, ashamed or stressed about it yourself as you’ll pass that on to him.

      Remember, this is very normal and lots of kids do this.

    I believe this would be a valuable tool for all parents raising children today. There are so many more issues that we as parents have to address now, then when I was growing up. Great find-
