00:00:01    Alyssa

You're listening to Voices of Your Village. This is episode 190 and in this episode, we're talking about how to respond when your kiddo says something hurtful, like you're stupid, or you're the meanest mom, or you don't even love me. What do we do? It can bring up so many triggers for us, and parts of us are going to come to the surface from our own childhood and our own wounds and social programming. Maybe it's things around respect or obedience, or maybe triggers from times where other people have said, hurtful things to you are going to come up. And so how do we navigate that. This episode is going to dive into what's going on with your kid beneath...

You're listening to Voices of Your Village. This is episode 189. I got to hang out with Michelle Emanual to chat about oral restrictions and sensory regulation. This was something that was coming up in our village asking about how lip ties or tongue ties might play into sensory regulations, right? Started to do a deep dive and found Michelle and was like, whoa, I ended up diving real deep. She is a wealth of knowledge. And I hung out with her before, Sagey was even born. I was pregnant when we recorded this episode and was just blown away by how, you know, we know everything is...

 00:00:00    Alyssa

You're listening to Voices of Your Village. This is episode 187. I got to hang out with Megan from Feeding Littles to chat about common food challenges for toddlers. I actually just had a friend reach out and say, oh my goodness, it's like a switch flipped my kiddo turned two, and all of a sudden, all the foods he loved, he will not eat. And it's only meatballs and waffles. And specifically, party cake waffles. We have all navigated this with kiddos, where they love this food, and the next day they cannot stand it. And so how do we navigate this jazz? You submitted your questions, and I got to throw them at Megan one by one. I'm so jazzed to...

Body Exploration

 

00:00:00    Alyssa

You're listening to Voices of Your Village. This is episode 185. I got to hang out with Rebecca Koon from Everybody Talks and it was so much fun. We are chatting all about body exploration and what to expect from the tiny humans. What is normal typical behavior? And how do we respond? What might come up for us? Maybe from our childhood or our cultural norms and what do we do with all those feelings, our big adult feelings around this jazz because it can be really uncomfortable if we are trying to raise kids in a way that's different than we were raised. Maybe there were shame or judgment or simply silence around body exploration for you culturally...

When to Discuss the Behavior

 

 00:00:00    Alyssa

You're listening to Voices of Your Village. This is episode 184. In this episode, I am diving into when to discuss the behavior with kiddos. So often, when it comes to behavior, we have this inclination to step in and talk about it right then. What they can do, what they can't do, what they're supposed to do, what they're not supposed to do etcetera, because we have these underlying fears of, if we don't talk about it right now, they'll think this is okay, if I don't address this, am I encouraging it to happen again? We're diving into all of that in this episode because the reality is, in the moment is the worst time to discuss the behavior. So...

Instead of "Use Your Words"

 

00:00:00    Alyssa

You're listening to Voices of Your Village. This is episode 182. In this episode I got to hang out with Speech Language Pathologist Emily Lesher and we were chatting about the phrase, "use your words" and why it's not helpful to say to tiny humans in the moment when they're upset when their dysregulated and what else we can do. Emily does incredible work at this organization in Massachusetts where occupational therapists are working together with Speech Language Pathologists. The cool part about this is that then SLP's, Speech Language Pathologists are taking into account sensory regulation and then nervous system regulation when they're working on...
